Pitchfork (Website) - "[I]t's a testament to Chinx's still-growing pop smarts that WELCOME TO JFK is sometimes a lot of fun. "
Recording information: Four Kings Studios, Queens, NY.
Creator: Paul Grosso.
Welcome to JFK finds mixtape maven Chinx -- formerly Chinx Drugz -- at the beginning of a second career in the mainstream, but before the release of this album he was killed in a drive-by shooting. A tragic loss, and an artistic one as well since the autobiographical "Far Rock" proves the man behind the hardcore series of Cocaine City mixtapes can also deliver a relatable story and show some pathos. "Yay" is a hook-filled club anthem worth chanting, while "On Your Body" is smooth and silky R&B inspired by the Weeknd. A well-rounded effort with plenty of promise, the posthumous Welcome to JFK is one bittersweet victory. ~ David Jeffries
