Dayvon Daquan Bennett (August 9, 1994 – November 6, 2020), known professionally as King Von, was an American rapper and songwriter from Chicago, Illinois.
He was signed to Lil Durk's
record label, Only the Family and Empire Distribution.
At age 16, Von went to jail for the first time. This would only be the start of a long course of legal troubles for him.
In 2014, he was accused of a shooting that killed one and wounded another. After proving his innocence and beating the case, King Von took to rapping, collaborating with Lil Durk on singles. Lil Durk eventually signed him to his OTF (Only The Family) entertainment label.
On October 9, 2020, King Von released "I Am What I Am", featuring New York rapper Fivio Foreign. This release was in anticipation of his debut studio album Welcome to O'Block, released on October 30, 2020.
On November 6, 2020, King Von was involved in an altercation in a downtown Atlanta nightclub that took place around 3:20 a.m. between two groups of men, one of them associated with rapper Quando Rondo. The dispute quickly resulted in a shootout, which two police officers attempted to break up with additional gunfire. Two people accompanying Bennett were killed and three others were wounded. Bennett was transported to the hospital in critical condition and died later that day.
