chinx, who also formerly went by chinx Drugz, was shot to death yesterday morning in his hometown of queens, ny. The management behind the Coke Boy rapper released a statement regarding his homicide: "It is with a heavy heart that The Legion Media Group and 4 Kings Management announce the passing of Lionel 'chinx' Pickens this morning. He was 31."

from what reports are stating so far, chinx was chilling inside passenger of his Porsche Panamera when he was shot with multiple rounds. The drive-by occurred on queens blvd when they stopped by the intersection of 84th Road when the attackers rolled up on the rapper's Porsche and started firing.

The man driving chinx' car remains in critical condition in the hospital at the moment, however it's unfortunate to say chinx himself did not make it. The rapper was just getting ready to release his debut album Welcome To JFK this year too, so it sucks to see talent gone too soon.

Now the NYPD is reporting that three men who were in connection with the shooting ofrapper chinx have not been taken into custody in the afternoon of May 17th. The men taken in custody are also in connection with two separate crimes in the area. The men are defending themselves stating that the only crime they committed was robbing a vehicle, however the NYPD thinks otherwise. All three men will now be investigated to find any ties within the homicide. More details will be posted soon.
