New York rapper Chinx was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in Queens on May 17, before he had a chance to release his debut album.

Now, the collection Welcome to JFK, is streaming via Billboard before its official release on Friday.

The 12-track album boats appearances by French Montana, Ty Dolla $ign, Nipsey Hussel, Jeremih, Meet Sims, and more.

“Watching and helping Chinx develop as an artist over the last few years has been an amazing experience,” the rapper’s manager, Doug “Biggs” Ellison, said in a statement earlier this summer. “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.”

Head over to Billboard to stream Welcome to JFK.
