Following news of French Montana and Coke Boyz affiliate Chinx’s death, there has been an outpouring of sympathy from those who knew and worked with the late 31-year-old. His industry peers, such as Stalley and Emilio Rojas complimented his personality, referring to what was widely regarded as an affable, personable demeanor.
Similarly, Ebro Darden and Miss Info of Hot 97 had kind words for the emcee formerly known as Chinx Drugz.
With speculation Chinx died in an apparent drive-by shooting, Meek Mill posted some pointed statements to an Instagram picture of French Montana and Chinx, denouncing the violence that so often plagues impoverished neighborhoods of color.
