The death of Coke Boy Chinx is still fresh in everyone’s minds, especially French Montana and former Dipset affiliate Max B. French has been sharing his feelings about the loss of his best friend on Instagram. Max B, who’s been locked up in a NJ prison since 2009, called up Revolt to reflect on Chinx’s death and opened up about how close they were. He said that he felt the same way when Chinx’s right-hand man, Stack Bundles, was killed back in 2007.
“I don’t know if people realize how close we were,” said Max. “We all used to be in my crib– French, me, him. I would be with Chinx everyday. Chinx used to spend the night at my joint and we’d be in there all night, making music and shit.”
Max also explained that he and Chinx didn’t appear on a lot of songs together because his trial kept him busy at the time. Towards the end of the call, Max gave his opinion about the racial tension in the the country. In his mind, society has reverted to the Civil Rights era of the 1960s. He feels that the community is being held back by all of the senseless killings of Chinx, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner.
“They’re bringing the 1960s all over again. You got the police killing us and choking us to death. Soon they going to start bringing out the water hose and hosing us down. It’s back to the civil rights movement again. They killing us and getting away with it then we go and shoot each other right on top of it.”
For the unfamiliar, Max B is currently serving his 75-year prison sentence after being found guilty of assisting the armed robbery, kidnapping, and murder of David Taylor back in 2006. While in prison, he was able to work a deal with Amalgam Digital to release his debut album Vigilante Season in 2011. Listen to the audio below.
