Due to Diddy signing French Montana in 2011, he had relatively close ties to the Coke Boys. In the case of Chinx, he had his own movement and his own freedoms to do as he liked. Often, this meant Chinx would be at the infamous parties Diddy would hold in Miami.
Two days ago, Diddy was just as shocked as the rest of the world to know that Chinx was murdered. Immediately, many assumed Chinx was murdered by someone who was out to stop his momentum. Honestly, most assume the assailant is black and that’s a safe assumption.
When Chinx died, Diddy dedicated several Instagram posts to his memory. Sharing a couple of photos and several videos, Diddy had a lot to get off his chest about what’s going on. He mentioned the losses our community has had at the hands of the law, but he went onto say black people are on as much of a genocide towards our own kind as they are, with Chinx being one of the latest victims.

For the last couple of months we have experienced a lot of injustice and wrongdoings to a community. But there is a flip side. Yes #BLACKLIVESMATTER ! But no one will respect us if we as a people don’t have any respect for our own black lives. We are committing genocide on ourselves. We are always looking for scapegoats . We as a people hurt ourselves more than anyone has ever hurt us. That makes no sense. We as a people including myself have to take accountability and do whatever we can do individually or together to stop the madness and realize that we are KINGS and QUEENS AND Must love ourselves and each other. I know I’m rambling a little bit. #BLACKLIVESMATTER SO AS A PEOPLE LETS PRACTICE WHAT WE PREACH.!!! MAY GOD BLESS US ALL! Ii LOVE YOU!!!!!!
