Chinx may have been tragically murdered one year ago today, but his legacy continues to live on through his music. Today, his team premieres the rapper’s new single, “Like This,” featuring Chrisette Michele and Meet Sims. The track serves as the lead track for his second posthumous album Legends Never Die, which is due out on July 8.
“Like This” finds Chinx in happier times, grooving out with the help of some smooth vocals from his pair of collaborators. “99 problems but the money never one/See I done switch the same money over three times/She ain’t fucking with you because she really wanna roll with a rich young nigga from the East Side/You ain’t count to see the money all there/Fucking niggas hating ain’t going nowhere/7 days a week, 365/We the only niggas throwing money in the club all year,” he spits.
Chinx was murdered exactly one year ago today in a shooting after a club appearance and the case remains unsolved. A recent report from Fox 5 NY revealed that investigators have struggled to identify a suspect due to uncooperative witnesses. The Queens native was a longtime associate of incarcerated rapper Max B before he signed to French Montana’s Coke Boys label. He was just getting ready to put out his debut album before his untimely death. The project—titled Welcome to JFK—ended up dropping last August, and features artists like Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, and French Montana.
