King Von’s Mural
King Von’s diehard fans and many others are disheartened to hear that there is a strong possibility the mural dedicated to him on O Block aka the 6400 block of South Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Chicago is going to be removed…
The mural was created by the one and only, highly talented Delilah Martinez and her Mural Movement organization. The mural was placed after Von’s tragic death back in November 2020 from an Atlanta shooting.
The mural was made on the street the young rapper grew up on and is open for his fans, family, and anyone to remember him by. Lil Durk recently made a visit.
The mural is enjoyed and it is such a great way to remember the life of Von, but unfortunately, the Chicago Police Department, as well as the people of Chicago, disagree.
Delilah explains how the mural may have to be taken down.
“We might have to take down that King Von mural,” Delilah explains “And I’m gon’ tell y’all why it really actually bothers me.”
“So, if you guys know my story or know the Mural Movement and how we got started, y’all know how important it is to do specific things like art in specific areas, especially Black and Brown communities. So, that’s how the Mural Movement started. We’re all about representation, beautifying communities in need, especially underserved communities that don’t have art or murals.”
Many are annoyed by this especially like Delilah said many communities don’t have nice things like this.
