The hip-hop community endured a misfortune yesterday, and now we’re presently recuperating.
Taking after such an epic Roc-A-Fella get-together amid his “B-Sides” concert on Saturday, Jay Z rearranged and did it once more Sunday night in New York City.
Jay improved his set rundown to pay respect to Coke Boyz rapper Chinx Drugz, who was gunned down in his Porsche Panamera in Queens, New York early Sunday morning.
Jay paid tribute to Chinx by saying:
“A young man got killed last night named Chinx. I think it’s real important for us…I can understand it. We are seriously under attack like never before…rest in peace to Chinx. And we’re still killing each other. We need to understand that we are kings and queens and we’re under attack. A young man trying to make his way out the hood…and goes back to his hood. People always say “they left the hood and never want to come back” but when you go back to the hood you get killed. We can’t have it both ways. We gotta protect our own. We gotta protect our own….We gotta take responsibility for what we’re doing. You understand what I’m saying? The statistics are against us, lets not make it harder on ourselves.”
