Riding the notoriety of winning the weekly ‘Freestyle Fridays’ rap battle on BET’s “106 and Park” for seven consecutive weeks, Jin (Jin Ah-Yeung) shattered seemingly insurmountable boundaries and stereotypes by becoming the first Asian American rapper to sign a recording deal with a major label when he signed with Virgin Records (Ruff Ryders). NO SLEEP TIL SHANGHAI follows Jin and his crew as they tour Asia to promote Jin’s debut album, “The Rest is History”. Along the way, we are treated to a fascinating glimpse into the life of a hip hop pioneer as well as the rapidly growing hip hop communities in Asian cities such as Shanghai, Taipei, and Tokyo.
