Chinx's funeral will be held in New York next week

Posted on

Funeral arrangements for Chinx, whose real name was Lionel Pickens, have been announced. A service for the New York rapper, who was shot and killed on Sunday morning, will be held on May 26 in the Queens, New York neighborhood of Jamaica.


In addition to the funeral arrangements, Chinx’s management company has set up a GoFundMe campaign with support from the rapper’s family.

As you can imagine, in today’s challenging economic climate, losing your primary source of income can be devastating. When that loss is due to the unexpected death, it leaves a void that can never truly be filled.

Instead of sending flowers, please consider helping the family fill part of the financial void. Your donations will help provide much needed financial stability to a family who deserves so much more than what they have been dealt. We cannot replace the warmth, charisma, wit, charm, and love that Chinx gave to not only his family, and friends, but also, his fans. We can however, help keep them focused on what really matters, and that is each other.
