Chicago soft-spoken assassin King Von has been making a lot of noise in the music scene. Since signing to his cousin Lil Durk Otf record label back in 2018, the heart of Chicago(as he dubb himself) has been finding his place as the next drill rapper ready to blow. King Von is very known for his violent past as he is good at painting pictures of his life through his raps, but on his new album, you see improvement as a rapper.
King Von new album, ” Welcome to O’Block,” is a 16 track filled project with features coming from Polo G, Lil Durk, Dreezy, Moneybagg Yo, Fivio Foreign, and Prince Dre. This project once again showcases King Von’s ability to make you see and feel things he experienced growing up on O’Block. From the violence to being poor, learning how to hustle, and everything else that comes with the street life, King Von gives you that Black Air force One energy that many welcome. The album is very one-note as King Von doesn’t change his sound much, but with his content, I don’t think that would do much good for him. You do see him try to expand his sound on tracks like “Ride,” “How It Go,” and “I Am What I Am,” but for the most part, it’s still the same pocket.
King Von is talented and is the heart of Chicago as his music is very reminiscent of when drill rap was dominating the music sound. But King Von may have also hit a wall in his young career as he hasn’t showcased the ability to change or switch his soundtrack from the track. In the middle of the project as it sounds like one big song. King Von belongs in the rap industry, but maybe his sound is a few years late. You can stream Welcome to O’Block on all music platforms.
