Lil Durk honors late rapper King Von in new video for “Backdoor”

Chicago MC Lil Durk honors those closet to him and pays tribute to late rapper King Von on his sobering new single, “Backdoor.”

The song is accompanied with a visual that finds Durk wearing Von’s O’Block chain in remembrance of the fellow Chicagoian, who was signed to Durk’s Only The Family record label. The 26-year-old was shot and killed in Atlanta on November 6th, a week after releasing his debut album, Welcome to O’Block.

“You weren’t on that block when [stuff] was goin’ on / I wasn’t worryin’ ’bout the other side when that [stuff] was goin’ on / And we don’t hang with different [guys], don’t ask us what we on,” raps Durk.

After Von’s death, Lil Durk took a brief break from social media, but has since returned with the hashtag, #Doit4Von.

“Backdoor” follows Durk’s hometown anthem “The Voice,” as well as guest appearances on Megan Thee Stallion’s debut album, Good News, Meek Mill‘s “Pain Away,” and Drake‘s Grammy-nominated latest hit, “Laugh Now, Cry Later.”

Durk recently celebrated the success of his RIAA certified Gold album, Just Cause Y’all Waited 2, which peaked at #2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart.
