NYPD Has A Motive In The Killing Of Chinx
Yesterday, police arrested Quincy Homere and Jamar Hill in the 2015 killing Coke Boys rapper Chinx.
Both men were already locked up when they were charged.
Lt. Richard Rudolph, Commanding Officer the Queens South Homicide Squad, spoke to XXL about how they finally cracked the case after a more than a two-year investigation.
Rudolph says Homere— an aspiring rapper who goes by the name Qwality—fought Chinx on Sept. 27, 2009, while both were housed on Rikers Island.
Things between Homere and Chinx kept festering until April 2015 when they had a verbal confrontation during a show in Philly. French Montana, Uncle Murda, and other prominent rappers are said to have witnessed the yelling and allegedly "blacklisted" Homere.
A few weeks later, Chinx was shot dead in his Porsche after police say Homere and Hill followed him from a show he had finished in Brooklyn to his hometown Queens.
Both men have been charged with second-degree murder, second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, and second-degree criminal possession a weapon. The authorities believe only Homere fired a weapon, but Hill assisted in planning the attack.
If convicted, they each face 25 years to life in prison.
