Khingz releases new album “From Slaveships to Spaceships”

Gun violence.  Drug abuse.  Disillusionment.  Self-hatred.  Journey through the mastermind of Seattle-bred emcee Khingz with his highly-anticipated solo album- “From Slaveships to Spaceships”, debuting Juneteenth, 2009 on Fresh Chopped Beats / MADK.  “From Slaveships to Spaceships” is a testimony of transformation, a voyage through time and space, a continued search for freedom of mind.  Khingz breathes life into art with his rapid spitfire delivery, heart-filled thought provoking lyrics and infectiously thriving beats provided by a wide array of producers including Sabzi of Blue Scholars, Amos Miller, Kitone and more.

Khingz transcends the meanings of liberation through music and carries forth his vision to uplift minds in today’s society.  The album releases on Juneteenth, which is June 19th or Freedom Day- the day observed to commemorate the abolishment of slavery within the United States. 

Known for his high energy performances and versatility, Khingz has been motivating crowds for well over a decade across the country and continues to expand his range of supporters.  He has shared stages with many Hip Hop greats including Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, K’naan, as well as a host of Seattle luminaries ranging from Blue Scholars to Dyme Def.  Khingz often rhymes alongside emcee-partner Gabriel Teodros, combining to form the dynamic duo- Abyssinian Creole.

Khingz’s album release party will take place in Seattle, June 20th at Chop Suey, 1325 E. Madison (14th & Madison) in Capitol Hill.  Additional performances will feature The Physics, Yirim Seck and DJ Daps1 on the wheels of steel.  Hosted by Spaceman.  $10adv./$12dos.  8pm Doors / All Ages / Bar w/ ID.  Tickets available at www.ticketweb.com, Chop Suey, Hidmo Eritrean Cuisine, Sonicboom Records & Cellophane Square.
