On the second anniversary of his passing, French Montana took to Instagram to pay tribute to his collaborator and close friend Chinx. French captioned the photo with: “Always look to this when I’m down and need motivation to keep pushing […] we miss u my brother.”
Born Lionel Pickens in Queens, New York, Chinx met French Montana in 2009, with the pair forming Coke Boys soon after that. They continued to make music together for years until Chinx’s death from gun shots to the torso. His posthumous album Welcome to JFK was released in August of 2015.
