    King Von | The Rich Life | Rolls Royce Wraith, House for Mom, Icebox O Block Chain & More

    King Von | The Rich Life | Rolls Royce Wraith, House for Mom, Icebox O Block Chain & More

    King Von is an extremely talented and exceptional rapper and songwriter who grew up on the mean streets of South Chicago. The man pulls from urban literature and his own experiences on the street to create his lyrics for hit songs like “Trust Issues”, “War wit’ Us”, and “Crazy Story” which got him enough shine that he was signed to close personal friend Lil Durk’s Only The Family record label. Von really only started releasing music a couple of years ago, back in 2018 to be exact. He spent the previous three years or so in prison, just narrowly beating out a Life Sentence. When he got out, King Von knew he had to turn his life around. He teamed up with Lil Durk and within six months, he had a ton of viral hit tracks on his hands – and more importantly, a whole ton of greenbacks. Since then, life has been one giant success story for King Von. He’s purchased himself a couple of different whips while also making sure to take care of the most important person in his life, his Mom. But there’s one place and one place only where King Von practically lives to spend money and it’s a pretty well-known jewelry store called: Icebox. If you ask me, it seems like King Von is finally living his best life with an estimated net worth of roughly $200K. Though, I think if you were to ask him, he’d have a slightly different estimation of his overall value. At least, that’s what he’s telling his buddies.

Eventually, he found himself committing armed robbery and was locked up for over seven years. While on the inside he had himself a pretty famous cellmate who we’ll get to a bit later on in this video and once Casanova finally found himself released, he decided that it was time to completely change his life-up. Cas decided to try his hand at the rap game and created hit songs like: “Don’t Run” and “Set Trippin”, which are aggressive, real give no-F’s type of bangers.
