French Montana Says Chinx’s Funeral Expenses Are Taken Care Of



French Montana received much backlash throughout social media after the family of slain Queens rapper Chinx announced they were taking to GoFundMe to cover funeral costs. Chinx, born Lionel Pickens, died Sunday after he was shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting. He was 31.



French Montana took to IG to clear the air on the matter announcing funeral costs were in fact already taken care of.

His post read, “I hate having to address the negativity during this time of grief. It is irrelevant. I pray that everyone would consider that real people lost a real man, friend, brother, father before spreading hateful speech. His funeral is taken care of …. My brother is in good hand… If you don’t have nothing positive to say keep it to your self #ripchinx.”



Chinx’s family GoFundMe page shows they are hoping to raise a total of $20,000. At this time, the family has received close to $13,000 in donations.

The post on the fundraising page reads:

“The Hip Hop community lost a rising star: Lionel ‘Chinx’ Pickens was gunned down in the early morning hours of May 17, 2015. A father, husband, son and brother, Chinx leaves behind a legacy of music for his fans. He was truly a great life cut short. As Chinx’ extended family, please consider helping out his family during this devastating time. This fund will be established to provide some financial support for the tough road ahead.

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.

On behalf of the Pickens family, Mungin family and Four Kings Management, we thank you all for your love and support.”

The funeral service will be held in Jamaica, Queens:
