Gone too soon.


When I get on the set and do Dedication mixes, they end up being some of my favorite mixes... It's unfortunate that this one is due to a tragic event.

On Sunday, May 17. 2015, Lionel Pickens, better known to the Hip Hop community as rapper Chinx was killed while attempting to drop off a friend of his to get home. As I always do, I dedicate a segment of the Heat Wave to the fallen star who had so much more to give us.


This is what I had to say on my Instagram page once I heard what happened:
