Xtinguish Records presents ARSIN,who’s a Hip Hop artist from the Mantua area of Philadelphia which is also know as “Da Bottom”. Influenced by artists like James Brown, Michael Jackson, Bone Thugs, Nas, 2pac, Eminem, Naughty by Nature, Brand Nubians, Chub Rock and Marvin Gay, ARSIN later decided that music would be the best career path for him.
