We know that hip hop is hurting big time right now. The streets have fallen to another soldier out in the rap game, as news has been official that Chinx Drugs has been killed in his own neighborhood. According to NY Daily News:
Lionel Pickens, 31, who performed as Chinx, was shot multiple times, and passenger Antar Alziadi, 27, hit twice in the back in the rapper’s Porsche, at about 4a.m. on Queens Blvd. at 84th Drive in Briarwood, cops said.
Pickens had performed at around 2:30 a.m. at Club Red Wolf in Brooklyn, and the pair had tried to go to a nearby hookah bar, which was closed, cops said.
The shooter sped off while the rapper’s silver Porsche Panamera 4 rolled for about a block and came to a stop in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts. At least seven bullet holes pierced the front and rear driver-side windows.
An employee at the Dunkin’ Donuts said Pickens looked lifeless in the driver’s seat when cops arrived at the scene.
According to Legion media group, they had this to say:
“It is with a heavy heart that The Legion Media Group and 4 Kings Management announce the passing of Lionel Pickens this morning. He was 31. Few details are available about his passing but his management confirmed his passing this morning. The rapper from Queens, New York was a member of French Montana’s Coke Boys. (Pickens’) dedication, humor and vision will always be remembered “(Pickens) was one of the most talented, professional, and determined rappers this industry had to offer,” said Publicist Chanel Rae, “Further more, he was a friend.”
With so much violence in hip hop today, it’s easy to see why SEO rapping can be a safer route to go instead of the typical topics people rap about. You gotta watch the block because people can just creep up like they did in a whip next to Chinx’ Porsche and spray shots. The tradegy of this situation is terrible. Jay-Z gave a shout out to the spirit of Chinx’ at his show in Manhattan. Hip Hop mourns another lost one as Meek Mill let off a new song about it, plus gave us that real street soldier spirit we respect:
