King Von has released his third studio album, Welcome to O’Block.
Across 16 tracks, the Chicago native combines street tales with hard-hitting beats, courtesy of producers such as Chopsquad DJ, Wheezy, Tay Keith, Hitmaka and DJ Ayo. The record also features assists from fellow Windy City rappers Polo G, Lil Durk and Dreezy, as well as Fivio Foreign, Moneybagg Yo and others.
Speaking with GRAMMY.com, Von explained that he wanted fans to hear his progression since Levon James, the mixtape he released in March. “If you’re doing something and keep doing it, you’re gonna get better results,” he said. “Everything better. It is the one for real, I’ve been working hard. The songs that are already released been doing great.”
Prior to Welcome to O’Block and LeVon James, Von released the mixtape Grandson Vol 1. In 2019, he released the song “Crazy Story,” which subsequently went viral.
