The late Stack Bundles' brother, Ronald Ulmer, believes his brother's death is linked to the recent murder of Coke Boy rapper Chinx.

"I really think they could be related," Ulmer said to the New York Daily News. "They were tight. They were a crew. And I just think if a person commits a crime as harsh as killing, and they think they got away with it, they will surface and do it again."

Stack Bundles' sister, Geannie Ulmer, remembers rushing to Jamaica Medical Center where Pickens was taken on Sunday (May 17) after being shot. "(He) is laying in the same place my brother did. For what? For rapping? For what he believed in?" she said. "You got to look at that. Somebody's out there aiming for us."

Investigators continued to look into Chinx's murder and began to consider a possible connection between the two murder. Chinx and Bundles grew up together and formed the rap group Riot Squad in the earls 2000s. After Chinx going to prison for robbery and drugs in 2003, Bundles, whose real name was Rayquon Elliott, was gunned down outside his Redfern Houses home in Far Rockaway at the age of 24 in 2007.

Police are still investigating Chinx's murder. Three people were taken into custody by police in connection with the murder so far.
