Today is a bitter sweet day in hip as it’s the release of Welcome To JFK, the freshman debut album from the late great young NYC hip-hop recording artist Chinx formally known as Chinx Drugz. Chinx was the type of artist to take the money he received from doing a show the night before and spend it the next day with a video director to filming another video for up-and-coming projects. Chinx believed that in life, you never get what you deserve but you only receive what you negotiate. There’s a reason why he was an independent artist and he placed his best foot forward. In other words, there was no way you couldn’t tell him that he would not become a star.
Welcome to JFK was much more then just an album for Chinx; it was a form of inspiration for all those that were birthed in inner city neighborhoods and raised in poverty, and he let his listeners that no matter one’s upbringing, you can still make it to the top and shine like a star. While working on the record, Chinx built his own team of producers, radio staff, A&R reps, brand marketers, all in-house and all with one common goal: to win. Chinx had the mindset of that we all work for each other. Like you hear in sports, there’s no “i” in team.
