King Von’s first posthumous music video is out for “Wayne’s Story,” a track from his debut studio album, Welcome to O’ Block.
The short video is an immersive one, telling the story of a child who shoots someone after a dice game and then starts to commit burglaries. The viewer follows the child as he grows into an adult and gets into a serious situation that leaves a family member dead.
The video ends with the nameless man taking revenge with a “to be continued” frame wrapping it up.
King Von was shot and killed after a confrontation outside of an Atlanta night club on Nov. 6. He got into a fight with rapper Quando Rondo and, during the scuffle, was hit by gunfire and rushed to the hospital, where he later died. Timothy Leeks, 22, was arrested and charged with his murder.
King Von’s debut album, Welcome to O’Block, came out on Oct. 30. It hit number 5 on the Billboard Hot 200 in November. The rapper’s family and team released a statement thanking fans for their support of both King Von and the album, promising to keep going with the album’s rollout.
“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.”
