Friends and family gathered for rapper Chinx‘s funeral today (May 26) in Queens.
Police officers also made their presence known at the funeral for extra precaution, considering the rapper was shot and killed May 17, according to the New York Daily News.
Before the funeral service, friends and loved ones filed inside the sanctuary to pay their respects at the open brown casket where Pickens lay dressed in a gray suit and surrounded by white roses.
“Violence has hit home,” he said after the service, as the rapper’s coffin was being loaded into a hearse. “He’s a kid who turned his life around and he gets assassinated. The police are doing a good job. Let’s hope they catch somebody.”
Two large screens set up nearby showed photographs of the rapper in happier days — with his wife and their three kids, at birthday bashes or hanging with friends.
