After one year, the late Chinx Drugs, an american rapper from Queens, NY, is still remembered for his character, his music, and the influence he had on the hip-hop culture. A documentary titled, “Chinx: One Year Later,” will be released later this summer to tell his story from the people who were closest to him and loved him dearly. Although the documentary will be released sometime this summer, a private screening was held on the one year anniversary to his death. Chinx’s family, closest friends, and loved ones were present to preview the documentary.
To orchestrate the film, Shaquasia “Quay” Brooks, of StarStruckDaily.com, and Jayyiah “Miss Jayyiah” Coles, came together to bring life to the documentary. Both parties created, produced, and directed the piece. Working hard to capture Chinx’s true essence, the ladies made sure to capture conversations with many people close to the slain rapper. The documentary featured Janelli, Chinx’s wife, Viking, one of his closest friends, Nut, his best friend, and even people Chinx came in contact with through his work in the music industry such as Bianca from Love and Hip-Hop and Ceaser of the Black Ink Crew to name a few.
The documentary was put together in such a way that the emotion and the pain of what transpired really touched every viewer. The documentary, is a series of retrospection, with every individual telling a Chinx story or merely expressing how they feel about what happened to him. People speak about fun times with Chinx, their disbelief that he is really gone, the difficulties of coping and moving forward, and lastly, the pain.
