Old body cam footage shows King Von asking for protective custody due to his sexuality
King Von is currently trending after DJ Akademiks posted an old body cam footage during one of his run-ins with the law earlier today.
The clip shows body camera footage of a police officer while Von was in his custody.
In the clip, Von tells officers that he is gay and therefore should be taken into protective custody. While some in the comments debated the motivation and meaning behind his actions, many more expressed surprise that the video was even posted.

The prevailing sentiment in the comments was that Von should rest and that the video should not have been made public.
King Von was shot and killed during an altercation with Quando Rondo and their respective teams outside an Atlanta nightclub on the morning of November 6, 2020.
King Von’s new album Grandson was released last week. The album is the second collection of songs by him to be released posthumously. It features contributions from G Herbo, Polo G, Lil Durk, Tee Grizzley, BreezyLYN, Tink, 42 Dugg, Moneybagg Yo, and Hotboii.
The project was preceded by popular singles such as “Robberies”, “Heartless” and “From The Hood”.
