Chinx Drugz's musical mentor Rayquan [Stack Bundles] Elliott met an eerily similar fate eight years ago.
Like Chinx, Stacks was returning home to Queens from a show when he was gunned down in the early morning hours. Both men drove Porsches, although Stack was hit on foot near the lobby of his apartment building on June 11, 2007.
Chinx was in prison when that happened, serving four years on drugs and burglary charges.
Police said yesterday the murders could have a connection. "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.
Chinx was a member of French Montana's Coke Boys posse, and these days Montana might be best known for dating Khloe Kardashian.
Boyce was asked if investigators are worried about the notoriety of the case and its Kardashian connection "We certainly are," he said. "There's always the issue of retaliation in these things."
