*UPDATE: Chinx’s family and management team have released a joint statement regarding the details of his wake and funeral. Chinx’s memorial services will be free and open to the public. The family is also seeking monetary donations at this time to help cover the expenses. They have set up a GoFundMe page to accept all kinds of donations.

As you can imagine, in today’s challenging economic climate, losing your primary source of income can be devastating. When that loss is due to the unexpected death, it leaves a void that can never truly be filled.

Instead of sending flowers, please consider helping the family fill part of the financial void. Your donations will help provide much needed financial stability to a family who deserves so much more than what they have been dealt. We cannot replace the warmth, charisma, wit, charm, and love that Chinx gave to not only his family, and friends, but also, his fans. We can however, help keep them focused on what really matters, and that is each other.

On behalf of the Pickens family, Mungin family and Four Kings Management, we thank you all for your love and support.

Today hip-hop lost another young New York soldier. Just after 4 a.m. this morning, Chinx Drugz was murdered in cold blood.

The Coke Boys rapper, real name Lionel Pickens, was sitting in a car in the Briarwood area of Jamaica, Queens at Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive when he was shot. Reports say Chinx was driving in a Porsche with another passenger when a second car pulled up beside them and opened fire. The other passenger was hit and is currently in critical condition at Jamaica Hospital.

Little else is known about the shooting right now and the police allegedly have no motive so far. We send out deepest condolences out to the late Queens rapper’s family and friends.
