Family, friends, and fans of Chinx will be able to hear his voice one last time this summer. Since he signed to the label back in February, eOne Music and Four Kings Management have revealed that they will be releasing Chinx’s nearly-completed debut album in the coming months. The Coke Boys affiliate had been working on his debut album entitled Welcome To J.F.K. before his death and had plans to release it in the fourth quarter of 2015. In the official press release, Chinx’s manager Doug “Biggs” Ellison commented on the one-of-a-kind album and praises Chinx as a rapper who was “ahead of his time.”
“Watching and helping Chinx develop as an artist over the last few years has been an amazing experience,” said Biggs. “He had finally come into his own, musically. This new body of work, Welcome to J.F.K., is a 1 of 1 creation. We took the raw emotions of an artist on the rise, and created a lane that will absolutely establish Chinx as a pioneer in the game. That may be a bold statement for some, but this kid was ahead of his time. His work ethic was 2nd to none. I’m looking forward to the release of his best work yet. I promise, you will be able to press play and ride out to this one! I dare you to live with it and tell me he wasn’t on to something special. Spread the word and support good music!”
Earlier today, the posthumous album’s official first single “On Your Body” premiered via DJ Envy. Singer Meet Sims lent his voice for the hook while LeeOnTheBeats and B Korn of the Amazinz produced the record. There’s no confirmation as to who else will be making an appearance on the album… yet. You can pre-order the album beginning on July 17. Stay tuned for more updates on the album and listen to “On Your Body” below.
