According to multiple reports, Tekashi 6ix9ine, the controversial rapper who became a target of scorn after he ratted out his friends in the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, disrespected King Von after it was revealed the 26-year-old was shot and killed outside of an Atlanta hookah lounge.
As most know, 6ix9ine and Lil’ Durk have been fighting for a few months, and his comments on Von may have been a shot at Lil’ Durk, because Durk and King Von were intimately connected. In fact, Lil’ Durk signed him to his team.
Reportedly, DJ Akademiks came out to say this week that Lil Durk probably learned about his friend’s death while doing a Livestream on his IG account. In the comment section, 6ix9ine supposedly posted a crying-laughing emoji.
As most know, Tekashi 6ix9ine came to prominence in a big way in the hip-hop scene for his trolling, so this doesn’t come as a surprise to his fans and his detractors. In recent news from Uproxx, the outlet claimed Durk said he was offered money by Tekashi 6ix9ine’s management to continue feuding with him.
While Lil’ Durk reportedly said no to the lump sum of money, the artist has since put Tekashi 6ix9ine on blast in a number of ways, including his social media, as well as his feature on Drake’s latest single, “Laugh Now, Cry Later.”
As it was previously reported, a fight between two groups of men occurred outside of a hookah lounge in downtown Atlanta. It’s not clear what led to the shooting, but it burst out into the streets with even the police getting involved.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, approximately six people were shot, three of which stayed at the scene of the crime, and the other three ran away. However, all of those involved went to the hospital eventually. The outlet also claimed that three of those men had died, including King Von.
Since the news of King Von’s death was revealed in the entertainment news circuit, many of the rapper’s friends in the industry have come out to honor him, including his on-and-off girlfriend, Asian Doll.
