Early life

King Von was born Dayvon Daquan Bennett on August 9, 1994 in Chicago. He spent most of his life in Parkway Gardens, aka “O’Block” located at the corner of 64th and Martin Luther King Drive on the South Side of Chicago. He grew up as childhood friends with rapper Lil Durk, as well as fellow Parkway Gardens resident Chief Keef. He was known for his nickname “Grandson” which refers to David Barksdale, the founder of the Black Disciples which King Von was allegedly a member of. He got the name in jail when many people who knew David said that he reminded them of the gang leader in how he handles himself in the streets as well as his general demeanor.

At age 16, Von went to jail for the first time. This would only be the start of a long course of legal troubles for him. In 2014, he was accused of a shooting that killed one and wounded another. After proving his innocence and beating the case, King Von took to rapping, collaborating with Lil Durk on singles. Lil Durk eventually signed him to his OTF (Only The Family) entertainment label.
