Chicago rapper King Von got into his city's drill scene after his fluid storytelling style caught the ear of more-established rapper Lil Durk. Durk signed Von to his Only the Family label and released his viral 2018 single "Crazy Story," which was included on his debut mixtape, Grandson, Vol. 1. A month after the release of his first official studio set, Welcome to O'Block, he was shot outside a nightclub in Atlanta. He passed away on November 6, 2020, at the age of 26.
