Chicago’s very own King Von will deliver his anticipated Welcome to O’Block album tonight, but fans are able to enjoy a visual from him in the meantime while they wait. The rapper released the visual for “Gleesh Place” earlier this week, which sees Von spitting about typical Chicago activities over a Wheezy beat:

“I make sh*t shake up in broad day. No face, ain’t no case, learned that the hard way. I’m posted in Parkway, f**k what the narcs say. Just hit a quick stain, now I’m runnin’ through gang ways. Jump the tall gate, hit a hallway. Ran to thе fifth floor, now I’m at Gleesh place. Came in out of breath, should’vе seen Gleesh face. And I showed him the stain, it was like fifty K. Finna buy a car, Gleesh say ‘Get a straight.’” 

Earlier this year, King Von released his sophomore album Levon James, which saw 16 tracks and features from YNW MellyG HerboLil Durk, Yungeen Ace, Tee Grizzley, and more. Prior to that, he broke out with Grandson, Vol. 1, which saw 13 cuts and includes the now popular “Crazy Stories” series — including the Lil Durk-assisted “Crazy Story (Remix).”

In a recent interview, King Von got candid about his mindset as of this moment in his life:

“I don’t give a f**k about leaving no mark, none of that. I just want to get my money right and take care of my people. I don’t give a fuck about nothing. If that shit didn’t come with the money, then I wouldn’t do it. If the awards come with a big sum of money, give me that shit. I’m going to work and get that shit. I’m really just trying to be me, trying to be raw because I need the checks and that’s what the fuck is going on. I’m going to keep doing this until I don’t need to do it anymore.”
