King Von announces Grandson Vol. 1, his upcoming debut mixtape. The mixtape delves deep into Von’s past, positioning him as the heir to a long line of Chicago gangsters, dating back to King David, the founder of the Black Disciples.
King David was a legendary figure, and a guy that everybody looked up to. He ran the streets with his own morals, and his own code, and that’s the code I live by too. That’s why people call me Grandson.King Von
To accompany the announcement of Grandson Vol. 1, Von shares “What It’s Like,” the project’s first single. A piano-led drill ballad with a beat from Chopsquad DJ, “What It’s Like” invites listeners to see life from Von’s perspective, as he processes the human toll of his actions and the environment in which he was raised. The new single is an excellent introduction to the upcoming project, providing context for Von’s career and past.
