YOUNG: Rambunctious and full of vibrancy with an infectious energy that’s impossible to ignore
SHARP: Razor sharp lyrics and swag that leaves onlookers slashed with amazement
READY: Eager to usher in a new genre of youth reigned hip-hop
Having already been declared as the New Teen King of Hip Hop by Bow Wow himself, the charismatic and uber-talented Young Jinsu is eager to convey a new wave of youth- swayed hip hop. Born Jah-Youth (God’s child) Lopez in Pawtucket, Rhode Island on September 24, 1992, Jinsu was exposed to hip hop from conception. While in his mother’s womb, the destined superstar’s father would often place headphones to his wife’s belly, blasting the sounds and rhythms of Notorious B.I.G. and Redman to his unborn, causing baby Jinsu to go ballistic.
At the age of 5, Jinsu’s godfather began dubbing him Jinsu, because of his immaculate appearance from head to toe, and his sharp-edged rhyme delivery. As a young child, Jinsu enjoyed a happy and loving childhood for the most part, heavily laced with the influence of hip hop. At the tender age of 8 years old, his mother abruptly abandoned him, dropping him off at his aunt’s home and never returning again. Bewildered and anguished by his mother’s unexplained exit, Jinsu cried hysterically to his father, who had immediately taken sole custody of Jinsu. After a year passed, Jinsu eventually heard from his mother and she came clean about her startling lifestyle of drugs, prostitution and jail. Young Jinsu maintains an eternal love for his mother and for his mother and holds her in high esteem. Young Jinsu is driven by his fond memories of her and a desire to share his success with her. He even wrote a song for his mother called Momma to let her know- “There’s only one man that can walk in your shoes. You were quick with the when your boy got a bruise. You were quick with the Band Aids when I got a cut; I love to see your pretty face when I’m rippin’ it up!”
Never deterred Jinsu held fast and steady to his dream. He became a force to be reckoned with in his home town of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and his buzz quickly began skyrocketing throughout the east coast region. The young heartthrob became such a hot commodity that local club owners would sneak Jinsu in to perform songs about childhood for mature audiences, who hung on to every word. His magnetic charm and undeniable star quality caught the attention of Four Kings Productions, during his 2005 Unsigned Hype Tour audition, and inspired them to make Jinsu an official member of their royal family. CEO of Four Kings and Jinsu’s manager, Doug “Biggs” Ellison immediately saw a star within and has since helped to polish this young talent’s craft and is making him the next great teen rapper that the industry has been waiting for.
Having now rocked audiences across the Northeast, the young hip-hop ruler’s commanding and captivating stage presence has sparked the interest of numerous hip-hop industry elitist, including P. Diddy, who brought Jinsu onstage during a show in Boston, where he held his own with the likes of Fabulous and Craig David. Young Jinsu has also shared stages with Bow Wow, Method Man, the Wu Tang Clan, and Lil Wayne. Jinsu is featured on the Bow Wow track Get It In on Bow Wow’s The Price of Fame album and has a wildly popular mix tape track with Chris Brown called Never Change. He’s toured with the And1 Killa Crossover Tour, did his own solo school tour at the end of the ’08 school year in NYC, and has appeared on BET’s 106 & Park’s Wild Out Wednesdays, and BET’s Rap City. Jinsu has also been featured in almost every teen magazine including Word Up, Right On!, J-14, Twist, and Astro Girl, and is on Giant Magazine’s website.
