The Spin: Chinx’s manager Doug “Biggs” Ellison spoke on the upcoming album:
“Watching and helping Chinx develop as an artist over the last few years has been an amazing experience. He had finally come into his own, musically,” Ellison said in a press release.
“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.”
