The widow of slain rapper Chinx wore white and many of the mourners filing into a Queens cathedral to say farewell Tuesday were clad in black.
But all around the Greater Allen A.M.E Cathedral of New York the dominant color was blue — NYPD blue.
Extra cops were on hand to provide security as the wake and funeral of the 31-year-old entertainer got underway.
Before the service started, friends and loved ones filed inside to pay their respects at the open brown casket where Chinx lay dressed in a gray suit and surrounded by white roses.
His grieving wife, Janelli Caceres, wore white jeans and a white top with the words “Baby Chinx” emblazoned on the back.
Two large screens set up on the cathedral stage showed photographs of Chinx in happier days — with his wife and their three kids, at birthday bashes, hanging with friends.
Born Lionel Pickens, he was described in the funeral program as a “jokester” who “influenced many with his music and his drive to get to the top of the hip-hop industry.”
