    Rappers China Mac and MC Jin have finally buried the hatchet 19 years after a shooting incident at a New York club that landed the former in jail.

    In a recent Instagram post, China Mac, whose real name is Raymond Yu, posted a picture of himself and fellow rapper MC Jin, also known as Jin Au-Yeung, appearing to shake hands.

    Rewriting History.

    The shooting incident happened in 2003 when Jin allegedly disrespected the wife of one of China Mac’s friends, who was in prison at the time.

    China Mac then confronted Jin inside the bathroom of Yello, a club in New York City. But one of Jin’s associates, fellow rapper Christopher Louie, allegedly rushed in with a knife.


    China Mac immediately took out a gun and pointed it towards Louie’s head. But as he was about to pull the trigger, the gun jammed. He tried again but ended up shooting the man in the back.

    After the incident, China Mac went on the run for over a year before he was apprehended in Seattle while trying to flee to Canada. The rapper spent 10 years in prison for the shooting incident.

    Although the photo of the two rappers shown together side-by-side was posted recently, China Mac said in an interview with Vlad TV after his release from prison in 2014 that the bad blood between them had been put to rest.
