The details regarding the funeral of Lionel “Chinx” Pickens have now been released. The rapper, who was shot dead this past Sunday (May 17), will be laid to rest next Tuesday (May 26) at the Greater Allen A. M. E. Cathedral of New York.

In lieu of flowers, Chinx’s family have asked for monetary donations in order to help them become financially stable in light of the rapper’s death. A statement from the family can be viewed below:

As you can imagine, in today’s challenging economic climate, losing your primary source of income can be devastating. When that loss is due to the unexpected death, it leaves a void that can never truly be filled.

Instead of sending flowers, please consider helping the family fill part of the financial void. Your donations will help provide much needed financial stability to a family who deserves so much more than what they have been dealt. We cannot replace the warmth, charisma, wit, charm, and love that Chinx gave to not only his family, and friends, but also, his fans. We can however, help keep them focused on what really matters, and that is each other.

On behalf of the Pickens family, Mungin family and Four Kings Management, we thank you all for your love and support.
