Was Chinx Drug’s Murder Related To 2007 Murder Of his Mentor Stack Bundles?
Where there is smoke, there may be fire.
Daily News Reports:
The deadly drive-by shooting of Queens rapper Lionel “Chinx” Pickens early Sunday could have a connection to the mysterious murder of his music mentor Stack Bundles eight years ago, police brass said Tuesday.
Bundles, whose real name was Rayquan Elliott, was gunned down near the lobby of his Far Rockaway apartment building shortly before 6 a.m. on June 11, 2007.
Pickens, 31, was serving four years in prison for cases involving robbery and crack cocaine when Bundles was ambushed and shot once in the head and once in the thigh at age 24.
“They were friends, Stack Bundles and Chinx. They were friends, so we’re looking at all hip-hop angles,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.
The murders share eerie similarities.
Both men were up-and-coming rappers who drove Porsches and had new music about to drop. Both had ties to bigger stars and were killed in early morning hours shortly after they performed locally.
Bundles had collaborated with rappers including Fabolous and Joe Budden. His mentor was Jim Jones of the Dipset and ByrdGang groups.
Pickens was a member of French Montana’s Coke Boys group and recently collaborated with Meek Mill.
Montana, 30, is the CEO of Cocaine City Records and the on-again off-again boyfriend of reality star Khloé Kardashian.
We hope police continue to investigate and really get to the bottom of this.
