A local artist decided to depict the slain rapper King Von in a mural outside of the Parkway Gardens housing project in the West Woodlawn neighborhood, notoriously known in the hip-hop community as O-block. The painting shows Von sitting informally on a classroom chair, with an O-block chain on to represent his roots.
6ix9ine, the widely controversial rapper from Brooklyn, has not been up to much in the music scene besides continuously throwing shade and fueling old beef with Chicago-based rappers. As of recently, he responded to the newly unveiled mural of King Von, who was shot dead in an Atlanta nightclub last November and who would’ve made 27 today.
Lil Durk made a visit to the mural yesterday to show love and respect for the late rapper on his upcoming birthday. DJ Akademiks, a close friend of 6ix9ine’s in the industry, posted about Durk’s visit to the mural on his Instagram, after which 6ix9ine took to the comments for some disrespectful remarks. 25 year-old rapper wrote, “Lil Tim put that man on on a Damn Wall,” referencing the street name of Von’s suspected killer Timothy Leeks. “Smh… he’s been on several T-shirts .. hats… he’s just a Diamond chain now… he reall said ‘if I was to die my ni***** gon slide every day…..’,” he continued.
Lil Durk has yet to respond to 6ix9ine’s comment, but it has received 11,911 likes and over 3600 replies, mostly telling the flopped rapper to sit down and show respect, but some agreeing with his point that in death Von is just a commodity now.
This is just one instance of 6ix9ine’s multiple beefs and shade thrown at other rappers, some of whom include Jim Jones, Blueface, Durk and more as of late.
