Following the death of Coke Boys rapper Chinx early Sunday morning, various members from the hip-hop community have flocked to social media to mourn his loss and pay their respects to the Far Rockaway, Queens artist.
During the second and final night of his B-Sides concert in New York yesterday (May 17), Jay Z paid his own tribute to Chinx and addressed the ongoing street violence throughout America.
“A young man got killed in Queens. His name was Chinx,” Jay Z said. “We are seriously under attack like never before. Like never before. Rest in peace to Chinx. And, we still killing each other. We need to understand that we are Kings and Queens. We are Kings and Queens and we are under attack.”
Following the concert, Coke Boys frontman French Montana took to Instagram to thank Jay Z for his words.
The devil comes in all shapes and sizes and he's ruthless. Life here is temporary. They will kill you for this lifestyle, if they can't afford it jealousy is a motherfucker Protect yourself, protect the people you love. I'm sad to see my brother go out like this, one of the realest people I met. This shit's not right. These streets don't love us My prayers go to his kids and family. We going to finish off what we started #ripchinx #ripstacks #freemaxb 🙏 s/o to #jayz
