The mother of slain rapper Lionel (Chinx) Pickens was seen mourning the death of her son yesterday. NYPD has also revealed more details from the crime and its possible connection to a 2007 murder. More inside…
It’s been a few days since the shocking murder of rapper Lionel (Chinx) Pickens and police investigating the crime have drawn some shocking comparisons to a shocking unsolved murder from 2007…
On Monday, the mother of rapper “Chinx” was photographed mourning his death in front of the Dunkin Donuts in Queens, NY where he was shot dead over the weekend.
While the bereaved mom was joined by family and friends, police investigating the crime have uncovered some shocking similarities between Chinx’s death and the unsolved murder of his friend and mentor in 2007. We’ll explain….
“Chinx” murder could have a possible link to the unsolved murder of his music mentor Stack Bundles eight years ago.
In the 2007 case, Stack Bundles (who had a close association with Jim Jones) was gunned down near the lobby of his Far Rockaway apartment building shortly before 6 a.m. on June 11, 2007.
The similarities, accoring to the NY Daily News: Both Stack and Chinx were up-and-coming rappers, both drove Porsches, both were on the rise with music about to drop, both had ties to bigger rappers (Stack via Jim Jones, Chinx via French Montana) and both were killed in early morning hours shortly after they performed locally.
NYPD Detective Robert Boyce said, “Stack Bundles and Chinx. They were friends, so we’re looking at all hip-hop angles.”
As we told you over the weekend, Chinx also had ties to Khloe Kardashian (via French) and often posted about rumored girlfriend Malika Haqq. And yes….Chinx was married at the time of his death. His day-to-day relationship with Janelli is unclear, though, with conflcting rumors and stories circulating.
His widow, Janelli Caceres, wrote on Facebook, “I wish a slow torturous death on who ever did this to my baby.”
Speaking Monday outside the family’s two-story brick duplex in Ozone Park, Janelli told the Daily News,
“My little Vince (her and Chinx’s 4-year-old son). It’s very hard, heartbreaking. It’s tragic. He didn’t die after an illness. He was murdered. It’s nothing that you can ever prepare for. We are just shocked.”
The NYPD is on high alert for several reasons. The Daily News said that Detective Boyce admitted the Kardashian connection plays a part. And also, he explained, “There’s always the issue of retaliation in these things.”
In one positive update, Antar Alziadi, who goes by the name Yemen Chee$e, and who was riding in Chinx’s Porshe when the gunfire broke out, will be released from the hospital this week.
On Instagram, he wrote, “All you motherf—— fake-a– motherf—–s that’s hating and talking s— on my f—— page, get the f— out of here with that s—.I’m alive. And I’m coming home.”
So far, cops says everyone, including Antar, have been cooperative with their investigation.
As we stated earlier, this was supposed to be a big week for Chinx as his single was set to drop. His publicist Chanel Rae McFadzean told the Daily News that the single (and his unreleased album) will now be delayed until after his funeral. “It was going to be a big summer for him.” she said.
Sad situation all around.
