China Mac’s Birth Information & Family History
Raymond Yu, often known as China Mac, was born on July 12, 1982, in Brooklyn, New York, USA. He will be 38 years old in September 2020. According to reports, his father was a key figure in the Flying Dragons, a Chinese-American gang operating in New York during the 1980s.
Yu revealed in an interview with tabloid sources that his father would work two jobs to support the family since he didn’t look after the family and his mother would work two jobs to support the family. At the age of 12, the rapper joined Fly Dragon’s rival gang Ghost Shadows and began his criminal career, including drug dealing and robberies.
Mac, an avid rap fan, would frequently engage in rap battles with others while in a juvenile prison camp.
A Gunshot Involvement in 2003 and a Decade in Prison
Mac was sentenced to three years in prison for gang-related offences when he was 18 years old in 2000, and he was released in early 2003. However, he was involved in an altercation with rapper and songwriter MC Jin on November 9, 2003, in a bar in Chinatown, Manhattan, in less than 5 months. He allegedly shot Jin’s friend, rapper Christopher “LS” Louie, in the back, leaving him partially paraplegic.
After a year, authorities apprehended Raymond Yu in Seattle, Washington, as he attempted to flee the country with a forged passport. Yu was granted parole in November 2013 after serving ten years in prison; however, he was imprisoned again after being accused of violating his parole and was released in 2017.
