Chinx Posthumously Connects With Red Cafe For 'CR6' Single 'Gettin Money': Premiere
On what would have been his 35th birthday, Four Kings kicks off the rollout toward Chinx's anticipated CR6 project with the release of the effort's first posthumous single on Tuesday (Dec. 4). "Gettin Money" teams the Coke Boy with fellow New York-bred spitter Red Café on the bristling tune, premiering on Billboard today (Dec. 4).
On "Gettin Money," the late Chinx takes the baton from the 42-year-old to ride the uptempo Jahlil Beats hard-hitting production. "Shawty with the fatty I be tapping on the monkey/ Money everywhere, money when you lift your feet up/ Even on the ones like a photo galleria/ Boxing n----s like fuck up out the lane/ She ain't fucking on the jet, hoe fuck up out the plane," he raps.
Café and the Welcome To JFK rapper also connected on French Montana's 2012 "Headquarters." Montana took some time on Monday (Dec. 3) to pay tribute to his fallen friend on Instagram with a clip of them hanging in Trinidad. "Forever Chinx!! Miss you my brother!! Happy Born Day Up There!! The Love was too pure, but the streets don't love nobody," French sincerely wrote.
Chinx, born Lionel Pickens, was tragically gunned down in Queens at a red light in a drive-by shooting during the wee hours of May 17, 2015. Quincy Homere and Jamar Hill were both arrested and charged for carrying out the murder for revenge in December of last year.
