He hadn’t released a debut album, though he’d intended to call it Welcome to JFK, as per Fader’s reports. French Montana recently shared the Chinx-featuring single entitled “Off the Rip”.

“We are very saddened at the loss of our brother chinx,” reads a statement from Coke Boys. “please keep his family & friends in your prayers.” “Seeing sh*t like happen always make my heart cold and make me act in cold ways towards my own kind of people,” wrote Meek Mill. “I hate to see potential DIE!!
