Lil Durk Honors the Late King Von in New ‘Backdoor’ Video

News

Lil Durk unveiled the video for his stirring new song “Backdoor” on Sunday (Dec. 20), and the vignette features a subtle but touching tribute to King Von.

In the clip, Durk is seen wearing his late friend’s signature O’Block chain, flaunting it for the camera.

Chicago’s King Von died in November at age 26 after being shot at an Atlanta nightclub. The rapper was reportedly hospitalized in critical condition following a shootout at the Monaco Hookah Lounge in Atlanta, which resulted in the deaths of three men, according to a report from the Atlanta Police Department.

Lil Durk and King Von were frequent collaborators, teaming up on 2019’s “Crazy Story” remix and “Twin Nem,” 2020’s “All These N—-s,” “Baguette’s” and “Down Me.”

“MY TWIN GONE,” Durk wrote in Instagram following Von’s death. “I LOVE YOU BABY BRO.” See here.
