Chinx Drugz (born December 4, 1983), is an American rapper part of Coke Boys. He is best known for being one quarter of Tha Riot Squad alongside the late Stack Bundles, but more recently for his collaborations with French Montana who is also part of Coke Boys.
Chinx Drugz was born in New York City and was raised in the Edgemere projects of Far Rockaway, Queens where he began rapping in junior high school. From the 9th grade he became more involved in music and in 2003 he helped create the Hip Hop group 'Tha Riot Squad' along with Stack Bundles, who had attended the same school as him. The group, which was made up of Chinx, Stack Bundles, Cau2g$ and Bynoe, gained underground success but never managed to breakthrough onto the maintstream stage.
Chinx was arrested in 2004 for drug possession and spent four years at Mid-State Correctional Facility in New York, being eventually released on 10 October 2008. During his jail sentence his long term friend and ByrdGang member Stack Bundles was murdered on 11 June 2007 in Far Rockaway.
He has said his influences in music are Stack Bundles, Nas, Dr. Dre and Jay-Z amongst others, and that his favourite album of all time is Nas's 1996 album It Was Written. He expressed his desire to XXL Magazine in February 2012 that he would most like to work with British singer Adele, stating that "her voice and melody is phenomenal" and that he knows they "would come up with a smash".
 Coke Boys
He was introduced to French Montana through Ty Black in 2009, after the two had previously known each other through mutual friends such as Max B, who was a ByrdGang member alongside Stack Bundles before his death. On 15 September 2010 the first official Coke Boys mixtape, on which Chinx was featured on four tracks. The next month the Coke Boys Tour mixtape was released, this time Chinx was featured on seven tracks. The highly anticipated Coke Boys 2 mixtape was released on 19 August 2011 which was a big success, with Chinx featuring nine times on the mixtape. The success of the Coke Boys movement since 2010 has made Chinx one of New York's brightest artists alongside new Bad Boy Records member French Montana, who have created a relationship seemingly similar to that of Max B and French Montana before the former being sentenced to a 75 years in 2009 and Stack Bundles and Chinx before the murder.
