Only The Family (OTF) signee King Von is an expert storyteller. It’s this quality that is setting him up as the future of Chicago’s drill movement. Less than a year ago he dropped “Crazy Story,” which was a street hit, racked up over 38M views on Youtube, and climbed to #76 on the national urban radio chart. Then he took fans on a thrilling roller coaster ride with the follow-up, “Crazy Story Pt. 2″ (14M views on YouTube) featuring his label boss Lil Durk. Today, as he prepares to release his debut mixtape Grandson Vol. 1 next Friday (9/20), the cinematic lyrical saga continues with “Crazy Story Pt. 3″.
If Money Making Mitch and Ace were from Chicago and in their prime in 2019, I imagine “Crazy Story Pt. 3″ could’ve been an alternate ending the cult-classic film Paid In Full. Riding the Chopsquad DJ beat, the plot to Von’s suspenseful lyrics vividly come to life in your imagination when you focus in on his words. Without missing any details, in “Pt. 3,” the heist planned in the original “Crazy Story” goes haywire, as Von suffers a betrayal from the woman who originally alerted him to the lick opportunity. Suffering heavy gunfire, Von barely escapes with his life, laying low for a week before he enacts his revenge.
Dubbed King Von by OG’s in jail because of his uncanny similarities with notorious gangster King David, Von is a burgeoning street legend in the making. Stay tuned and keep him on your radar as he drops his upcoming project, Grandson Vol. 1 and shakes up the street rap lane.
