Dayvon Daquan Bennett was born in Chicago, Illinois, on August 9, 1994. He was professionally known as King Von and signed to Empire Distribution and Only the Family record label. Von led a troubled life before he focused entirely on music. When he was 20 years old, he went to jail for one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder, but was later found not guilty.
After the murder charges were dropped, King Von started to clean up his life and focus on making music. He got his GED during his time in detention and attended South Suburban College to earn some college credits. Lil Durk of Only the Family had a significant impact on turning Von’s life around. He welcomed Von to his record label, where he released his first breakout single, “Crazy Story,” in 2018.
Von’s first single with OTF had a few renditions that were as popular as the first one. In July 2019, Von collaborated with Lil Durk to release a single, “Like That.” And another solo single, “What It’s Like.” The latter got featured in his Grandson, Vol. 1 mixtape.
King Von has two studio albums to his name. The first one was Welcome to O’Block, which was released in October 2020. The second studio album, What It Means to Be King, was released posthumously by King Von’s management team in March 2022.
King Von did not lead an easy life, but his experiences helped him grow as a person and live a passionate life doing what he loved. Below are some King Von quotes to remember the artist.
