Fresh off his stand-up comedy debut, MC Jin is scheduled to speak next month at TEDxUCSD, a local version of the popular conference at which well-known figures like Bill Clinton, Richard Dawkins and Bill Gates have spoken.

“Ideas worth spreading,” is the slogan of TED, which has accumulated billions of views of its talks on YouTube.

The event will take place on Sat., May 2 at the University of California, San Diego. Jin will likely share his “personal journey with its ups and downs,” according to his publicist.

Jin released his latest album, XIV:LIX, last October. Buy it on iTunes and Amazon.
