King Von charted twice on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with “Grandson, Vol. 1”  and “Levon James.” Just last month, he released the album Welcome To O’Block.
He became popular when he released his song “Crazy Story.”After releasing “Crazy Story” he then went on and released ” Crazy Story 2.0″ as well as “Took her to the O.” These songs are all related. In the popular songs, he told a gang-related story.

At the end of the song “Crazy Story,” he says, “We from 65th we not from 63rd.”65th and 63rd are both streets in Chicago where rival gangs are located. King Von had the entire US yelling “We not from 63rd” even if they weren’t from Chicago.

King Von was signed to Lil Durk’s record label “Only the Family and Empire Distribution.”

He was loved and cared for by the U.S. Even Lebron James reached out and tweeted:
“Damn Rest Easy Von! Bronny, Bryce, and I rocked with his music and storytelling! The kid had a damn good future ahead of him. My prayers and blessings to his family. #LeVonJames #KingVon.”

May he rest in heaven.
