King Von’s family and team have put out an official statement for the late rapper’s fans following the rapper’s death on Nov. 6.
Posted to Twitter and Instagram, the statement does two things: offer gratitude for the rapper's support and share plans for his music.
“Thank you to everyone who has shown their outpouring of love for King Von,” the statement reads. “You all played a massive role in Von’s accomplishments, and by continuing to play his music and sharing your stories about how he has inspired and influenced you all, you’re keeping his legacy alive.”
“To celebrate Von’s artistry, vision, and the immense love that he had for his fans, we will be continuing his rollout of Welcome to O’Block, while working to share unreleased music and interviews that he devoted his creativity to completing,” it continues. “Von had been working on new endeavors that we will be announcing down the line. Love, Von’s family & team.”
On Nov. 9, Von’s manager, Jameson Francois, revealed that King Von had two more projects that could be released.
King Von died after being shot during a confrontation outside of an Atlanta nightclub on Nov 6. 22-year-old Timothy Leeks has been charged for his murder.
At the time of King Von’s death, the rapper had just released his debut album Welcome to O’Block a week before. It hit No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 200 on Nov. 17.
