Hip-Hop Master Class with Chin Injeti [Article]


Vancouver, B.C. - When your musical resume includes Eminem, Clipse, Kanye, Dr. Dre and a Grammy, you can consider yourself a master. For Chin Injeti, that time is now, and he’s currently sharing what he knows with the general public via a hip-hop production master class at the legendary Nimbus School of Recording Arts.

A central cog in the Vancouver hip-hop community, Chin has propelled himself to the top of the game through both patience and practice: “Patience because that’s what it takes when nurturing yourself and others,” he explains, “plus practice cause it makes you better.” A seemingly simple formula, it’s a powerful motivator for Chin: with this attitude also comes his experience, “plus the point of view of other producers and artists that have been doing this for a long time with great success.” Among those advising the class – sometimes in person, sometimes via skype – are Boi 1da, Chin’s partner DJ Khalil, and Bink; past guests have included David Banner, DJ Flipout and Moka Only.

Serious contenders in the hip-hop game will garner valuable skills from these workshops, and its setting at Nimbus School of Recording Arts – which Chin calls “the future of the music industry because it teaches and nutures you at the exact same time – is key. The studio and school were the vision of legendary producers Bob Ezrin and GGGarth Richardson, who have worked with Pink Floyd, Rage Against the Machine, Rise Against, Jay-Z, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, Alice Cooper, KISS, and Peter Gabriel. In short, there are big things afoot.

And Chin, through all the music, fame and success, again breaks it down in simplicity when he says “never give up if you want it!”
