Police: Chinx’s Murder Linked To Prison Beef With Another Rapper

More details are emerging from the murder of rapper Chinx. The hip-hop cold case may have been cracked last week when two men were arrested for murder.

Rapper Prodigy’s Cause Of Death Can’t Be Determined Before Toxicology Report

Legendary rapper Prodigy of Deep Mobb passed away earlier this week. Early reports suggested that Prodigy’s chronic medical condition played a factor in the death; later reports suggested that he had choked on food during a hospital visit. Now, TMZ reports that an official cause of death can not be determined until a toxicology report is completed.
