Rapper Chinx Drugz (left) was murdered in New York City at approximately 5 a.m. this morning, according to reports.

Though the details surrounding the 38-year-old Far Rockaway native’s death are not quite clear at this time, rumor is, Chinx was sitting in his car when he was shot and killed.

The shooting reportedly went down in Jamaica, Queens. Meek Mill took to Instagram just minutes ago:

This is exactly why I don’t play in the streets ….. Chinx to French like Omelly to me! I tell @Omelly and my real day 1s get out that hood no matter what it cost or the circumstance! It’s nothing that add up to losing ya life at a young age!!! Niggas killing niggas that’s Tryna win! I got love for the people in the hood but I don’t fuck wit the hood nomore!
