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.
