Far Rockaway Queens, rapper Chinx was one of NYC’s most promising up and coming rappers when he was slain late on a Sunday evening in Spring 2015. He was about to release his debut album, Welcome to JFK, when violence stopped his life short. The album was close to completion, and was released in August that same year (featuring “On Your Body”), giving fans and new listeners a chance to see more of the heartfelt talent Chinx was poised to give to the world. The album was well received by fans and critically acclaimed by the industry, covered by outlets such as Pitchfork and XXL, among others. Over a year after Chinx’s untimely death, a second and final album from Chinx, Legends Never Die, released on September 16, 2016. Chinx’s manager and album executive producer, Doug “Biggs” Ellison says, "Legends Never Die is yet another example of the incredible talent that was Lionel Pickens. It is such an honor to uphold his legacy, and continue to bring his musical dreams to fruition. This project embodies the street chronicles that Chinx was known for, and displays his ability to satisfy what we consider mainstream. Chinx will live on forever through his music, and is truly exemplifying a legendary status under the worst of circumstances." The highly-anticipated, second posthumous album features French Montana, Chrisette Michele, Bynoe, Stack Bundles and Meet Sims, among other artists, and includes singles “All Good” and “Match That”.
