The legacy of the late King Von lives on in the newly released music video for his track “Armed & Dangerous”–a cut from his debut album Welcome To O-Block. The posthumously released music video features Von reflecting on his time spent inside of institutions and the paranoia he has experienced since becoming a rapper with notoriety. Director Jerry Production shot the video and revealed in a recent tweet that it was supposed to release the day King Von was murdered: “we was supposed to drop this video the day you passed away ??? rest up my boy…”
Von was killed in a shooting outside of a club in Atlanta on November 6 of last year. Dying at the age of 26. The young artist’s come up was undeniable and he was starting to gain traction as a notable name in the Chicago drill scene. He could often be found alongside his lifelong friend and fellow rapper Lil Durk–who Von spent time with in a Fulton County jail on charges of attempted murder. In December of last year, Durk dropped a music video commemorating his slain friend.

With the track “Armed & Dangerous”, fans get a glimpse into some of the more personal aspects of the late rapper’s life. In reference to his family, Von raps, “My lil’ brother getting big, my uncle got that cough again/He been smoking crack since I was born, that monkey stalking him”. In another instance, he references the death of one of his close friends Odee Perry, “2011, August 11th, R.I.P. Odee (Damn)/August 9th, two days before, I turned seventeen (Huh?)”.
