Controversial Brooklyn snitch Tekashi 6ix9ine was seen mocking the death of Chicago rapper King Von on social media Friday, reportedly due to his ongoing feud with King Von associate, rapper Lil Durk.
An Instagram post from blogger DJ Akademiks suggested that Durk may have learned of his friend’s death from fans while streaming on Instagram Live. Within the comment section, 6ix9ine responded with a crying laughing emoji, mocking the “All Love” artist and the late Von.
Tekashi has been feuding with Chicago-based rappers for much of his career, often seen trolling artists from the Windy city online. Uproxx reports that Durk even claimed Tekashi’s new management attempted to pay him to participate in a fake “troll war” with the rainbow-haired artist as a form of promotion. Durk refused, but was still subject to jabs from the “Gummo” artist. Durk also fired back on occasion, dissing 69 on Drake single, “Laugh Now, Cry Later.”
The 26-year-old King Von was involved in a fight between two groups of men outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge in downtown Atlanta when the altercation escalated to shots being fired. A total of six people were allegedly shot with three staying at the scene of the crime and three others running away, but still ending up at the hospital.
Three of those shot died from their wounds, including King Von, though it’s unclear who shot him.
