Subject: The King is Dead - King Von Shot in Atlanta

Written By: LyricBoy on 11/06/20 at 5:27 pm

Chicago rapper King Von (real name Dayvon Daquan Bennett) has passed away after a shooting outside of an Atlanta hookah bar.  :\'(

Six men were shot during the initial altercation and subsequent officer involvement. The three men who did not die from gunshot wounds have been hospitalized.

This was not the King’s first brush with guns. On July 24, 2014, Von was arrested in connection with a shooting in May 2014, resulting in the death of several men and the injury of two others. Von was charged with 1 count of murder and 2 counts of attempted murder. The shooting took place at 5700 South Lasalle Street in Englewood, Chicago. After witnesses failed to testify, King Von had all charges dropped and walked free at the end of 2017. Lil Durk has said in an interview with Von on the Breakfast Club that he pressed Von to become a rapper to stay out of anymore trouble.

On April 29, 2020, King Von released his single "Grandson for President", which also did well in popularity. He followed that up with a music video release for "Broke Opps", a song off "LeVon James". He then released another single, titled "Why He Told" on July 27, 2020 and followed that up with another popular single, "All These N**gas which has over 21 million views on YouTube to date in just over 2 months. He then released another single, titled "How It Go", on August 26th, 2020. On October 9th, 2020, King Von released "I Am What I Am", featuring New York rapper Fivio Foreign. This release was in anticipation of his upcoming album "Welcome To O'Block".
