King Von is in scorched earth mode on the late rapper’s new single “War.” Over rolling piano chords, an impassioned Von sandwiches two verses between an extended chorus with lines that showcase O-Block legend’s survival of the fittest mentality:
…I’m the type of nigga go to church with my gun out (With my gun out)
Gotta pray for my gun, he get too wild (He get too wild)
I’m the first name that they say in the shootout (In the shootout)
God textin’ me like, “It’s gettin’ too crowded” (Damn, damn)
Von’s first posthumous project, What It Means to be King, drops on all streaming platforms this Friday (March 4).
