Rapper Chinx Shot And Killed In Queens

French Montana-affiliated rapper Chinx was shot and killed in Queens early this morning (May 17), according to a statement from his management group.

Chinx, who was 31 at the time of his death, was a part of French Montana's Coke Boys collective and appeared frequently on a series of mixtapes titled Coke Boys and released his own mixtape series called Cocaine Riot.

Details on his murder remain scarce but the emcee was reportedly inside a vehicle in the Jamaica section of Queens when he was shot by a still-unknown gunman.

"Chinx was one of the most talented, professional, and determined rappers this industry had to offer," said Legion Media Group publicist Chanel Rae. "Further more, he was a friend."

Just last week Chinx was featured on a new song released by MeetSims. Listen to that track, "Rounds," here.

Meek Mill gave a sobering condolences to his comrade Chinx.

“This is exactly why I don’t play in the streets ….. Chinx to French like Omelly to me! I tell @Omelly and my real day 1s get out that hood no matter what it cost or the circumstance!
