King Von’s career began in 2018 when his childhood friend, Lil Durk, signed him to his label Only the Family (OTF). That year he released his first well known single called Crazy Story. This single is one of his most popular songs and put him on the map in the music industry.
After the release of his first single Crazy story he subsequently released the songs Crazy Story 2.0 and Crazy Story Pt. 3 in 2019 with Lil Durk collaborating. In late 2019, King Von released a mixtape called Grandson, Vol 1. This mixtape debuted at number 75 on the Billboard 200. His debut album, Welcome to the O’Block was released in 2020. The album reached number five on the Billboard 200 chart.

Dayvon went to jail for the first time at the age of 16 for possession of a firearm. This incident would be the beginning of his legal troubles. In 2014, he was involved in a fatal shooting that killed one and injured another in Chicago; he was eventually acquitted by trial after three and a half years in jail. Over the next few years, King Von would be in and out of jail.
King Von attended South Suburban College in Chicago and was able to earn college credits but did not finish school. While in juvenile detention he was able to earn his GED.

In 2019, King Von was romantically tied to Asian Doll and in February of that year she released a music video that he appeared in. They reportedly broke it off in September of 2020; only a month or two before his tragic death.
