King Von’s debut album, “Welcome to O’Block,” has been certified gold by the RIAA.
King Von was tragically killed in Atlanta on November 6, 2020, and in the months following his passing, the late Chicago rapper’s legacy has continued to live on through his brief, yet revered catalog. Two of his most popular tracks, “Crazy Story” and “Took Her to the O” eventually went on to become platinum-certified singles, and now, it appears that King Von has posthumously earned his first album certification as well.
