A rapper was shot multiple times and killed and his passenger was critically wounded as he drove a Porsche down a Queens boulevard early Sunday, a police source said.
Lionel Pickens, who goes by the stage name Chinx, was shot several times in the body and his 27-year-old passenger was hit twice in the back about 4 a.m. as they traveled on Queens Blvd. at 84th Dr. in Briarwood, cops said.
The shooter sped off while the victim’s silver Porsche Panamera 4 came to a stop about a block down the street in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts. At least seven bullet holes pierced the front and rear driver’s side windows.
An employee at the coffee shop said Pickens looked lifeless in the driver seat when cops arrived at the scene.
“The police came and they opened up the door,” said Bibekanada Das, who was working in the kitchen when the shooting occurred. “All you could see was the guy laid out in the seat.”
Emergency responders rushed both victims to Jamaica Hospital, where Pickens died and the younger man was listed in critical but stable condition, police said.
In 2009, Pickens released his first solo album, “Hurry Up & Die Vol. 1: Get Ya Casket On.” He is a member of French Montana’s Coke Boys group and record label.
