Earlier today, I was sickened to wake up to the news that Far Rockaway, Queens-based rapper Chinx (formerly known as Chinx Drugz) had been murdered in New York in the late hours of the night.
After leaving a party he’d hosted in Brooklyn, Chinx and his friend were driving through Queens in his silver Porsche Panamera around 4am, when a car pulled up beside them. An assailant let off a round of shots, 5 of which connected with the Coke Boys rapper. Both were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where Chinx was pronounced DOA. He was 31. His passenger is in critical condition with two bullet wounds to the back, but is expected to survive. He has since updated his Instagram from the hospital.
