Ten years after his death, Stack Bundles fans will get a chance to hear unreleased music from the Queens rapper later this year.
Today (June 11) marks the 10th anniversary of Stack’s murder. In 2007, it was reported that he died execution-style in the lobby of his Far Rockaway home from several gunshots. When Chinx died in May 2015, NYPD believed there was a connection to their deaths, as they were carried out in similar ways.
Bynoe, a member of the Riot Squad, shared the news on Instagram.

He was affiliated with DJ Clue’s Dessert Storm family and a member of Jim Jones’ Byrdgang crew. Chinx, who was once an artist to watch out of French Montana's Coke Boys, has said in previous interviews that Stack was instrumental in getting his rap career off the ground.
