King Von Net Worth

Did you ever wonder about King Von’s net worth when he was alive? King Von was an American drill trapper/rapper who had a net worth of $1 million at the time of his death in November 2020. 

Dayvon Daquan Bennett, known professionally as King Von. His signature rap look included blond and black dreadlocks, grills and multiple tattoos. 

Unfortunately, his life was cut short at 26 years old when he was shot multiple times in an altercation that occurred in Atlanta. We will dig deeper into finding out how Von managed to achieve his net worth and what we can learn from his success story in his career. 

Early Life 

King Von was born on August 9th, 1994 in Southern Chicago, the place known for its high crime rates. His father was not active in his son’s life and was therefore in and out of it. Sadly, he was killed when Von was just 11. The pain of losing his father and having a lack of fatherly presence was expressed and reflected in most of his songs. 

When Von was 16, he did some jail time and since then, he had a long stream of troubles involving the law which includes being involved in various gangs, also being in and out of prison. 

It can be difficult when as a young boy, being raised in a location with high crime levels, having a lack of life direction from a lack of fatherly presence, and losing a parent at a young age.

It can be more than enough to influence bad behavior. For more information regarding King Von’s legal issues, you can see his Wikipedia.

Von earned him a title in the competitive rapping world. It can be said that it is the collaborations with Lil Durk that make Von popular at first. However, his music career lasted only 2 years and released two mixtapes due to his death.

What Can We Learn From King Von

Remember Where You Come From 

When he was alive, he would occasionally go back to Chicago despite how rough and criminals his home is where the heart is. Also, whilst he would be there, he regularly hand out large sums of cash to young adults and kids that are struggling. 

Time To Grow Up 

In a detailed interview that Von gave to Passion On The Weiss back in June 2020 where he explained the reason why he moved to Atlanta and the reason behind him pursuing a rap career. 

Von explained that he got tired of going in and out of prison. This implies that because of the environment he grew up in, he probably thought that it was cool to get into trouble or to go down the wrong path. 

Being given a chance by Lil Durk who saw potential in him and would collaborate with him on many records to help his career, von saw it as an opportunity for himself. He realized that being bad is not cool. It does not get you anywhere in life. He wanted to find his way to success. He had a deep revelation by the time he was 25.
