King Von had a history of frequently encountering the justice system throughout his life. Recently, new footage has come to light showing the late rapper telling the police that he’s “gay” to secure a transfer to a different cell.
Leaked bodycam footage from November 2017 surfaced this week, showing King Von informing the police about his alleged sexual orientation, in hopes of being transferred to a different area of the jail for protective custody.
“Because of your sexual orientation, you’re requesting protective custody, is that correct?” one officer asks Von, who replies: “Yes.”
“They could be Christian, they got a problem with gay people. Bye, Lil Josh,” he then says while jokingly blowing a kiss to prove his point. “I’ma fuck you too. They tried to let me suck they dick.”
Numerous friends and collaborators of King Von stepped forward to defend the late rapper and clarify the situation surrounding his sexuality. No Limit Kyro, a fellow Chicago native, who claimed that the true motivation behind Von’s desire for a transfer was actually related to the jail’s regulations and not his sexual orientation.
“YALL KNO MY BOA TROLLING TO GET PUT ON ANOTHER DECK STOP DAT BAPPIN,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories.
OTF affiliate THF Zoo shared a separate video on Instagram, where an officer can be heard saying that King Von’s only request was to be moved across the hall.
