Album Notes
"On his long-awaited sophomore album, From Slaveships to Spaceships, Khingz rolls out his own personal vision of the Harlem Renaissance's New Negro: an outsider, a bookish black skater, a proud "Southside rider" from Rainier Valley who grew up around gangs and "more Filipinos than Daly City." Finding a shockingly expressive middle ground between head-taking lyricism and unblinking outrospection—just check the unstoppable "Bladed Poems"—Khingz is the best he's ever been." - The Stranger Magazine, June 2009

"[Khingz] lays down the gauntlet of what it means to be Hip-Hop, what it means to love Hip-Hop and what it means to be a Black man in a world that rewards us for living with limitations and perpetuating stereotypes… The future of Hip-Hop has been revealed.”- Ozone Magazine, June 2009"

"For years, Khingz made a name for himself as one of Seattle's wittier wordsmiths, partly because of his swift, didactic rhymes on various projects and at live shows..." Seattle Weekly, June 2009
