Coke Boyz rapper Chinx was shot and killed in Queens in the early hours of Sunday morning (May 17). According to reports, Chinx was shot multiple times in the torso in the Ozone Park area.

The 31-year-old, real name Lionel Pickens, was riding in a car near Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive in Briarwood when another vehicle pulled up, and fired gun shots. There was also an unnamed person in the car with Pickens. He is being treated at Jamaica Hospital at this time.

This is extremely heartbreaking to hear. The family just interviewed Chinx at Summer Jam last year, and he was nothing but awesome energy. At this time, we would like to send out prayers to French Montana and the Coke Boyz family.
