[Video] King Von’s Final NYC Trip Is Remembered with “Lurkin” Freestyle

King Von hits the streets of NYC just two days before his passing.

Just two days before his untimely passing last month, King Von connected with Funkmaster Flex in New York City to shoot a quick video “Lurkin.” Flex breaks down how the song and visuals came about:

7 months ago I hit Von in the DM, we facetime’d and sent him the track. We didn’t have a deep relationship…. He shared that freestyle on the spot wasn’t his thing but he mentioned that his pen game was mean! He sent me 6 bars… we listened.. tweaked it and he finished the song in about 4 weeks. He let me know he was coming to New York for his album so i asked to shoot the vid! His publicist said he has/likes Hellcat Redeye’s! When i met him he made it known he was gonna hit the drivers seat! 2 days later he passed. I have an interview i recorded that day but I’m not going to release it… no need. After Von passed we couldn’t find the session/vocals/track. Thanks so much to Dj Ted Smooth for working his magic on getting me the vocals to mix. Rest well Von… THANK U FOR THE OPPORTUNITY!

Von’s debut album Welcome to O’Block is available on all streaming platforms.
