The NYPD offered a $ 2,500 reward for information about the death of Queens-born rapper Chinx on Wednesday — one day before the debut of a documentary about the up-and-coming wordsmith’s life and untimely death.
The story of Lionel Pickens, 31, who performed under the name Chinx, will be told in the film “Long Live Chinx,” which airs Thursday on Revolt TV.
Pickens, a protégé of rapper French Montana and a member of his Coke Boys group, was pumped full of bullets as he sat at a red light in his 2014 silver Porsche with a friend in Briarwood, Queens on May 17, cops said. The shooter sped off after the attack.
The documentary, which includes interviews with mentors Sean “Diddy” Combs and Montana, promises to shed “new light” on the unsolved crime.
Pickens’ debut album “JFK” will be released Friday.
