The controversial Brooklyn snitch Tekashi 6ix9ine was found mocking the death of rapper Chicago King Von on social media Friday, allegedly due to his constant feud with King Von’s partner, rapper Lil Durk.
An Instagram post from blogger DJ Akademiks claims that Durk may have known of his friend’s death from fans while streaming on Instagram Live. In the comments, 6ix9ine responded with an emoticon, mocking the artist “All Love” and the late Von.
Tekashi has had a feud with Chicago-born rappers for much of his career, often seeing artists from Windy City online. Uproxx reports that Durk even claimed Tekashi’s new manager was trying to pay him to engage in a fake “troll war” with the rainbow-haired artist as a form of promotion. Durk refuses, but still takes the knife from the artist “Gummo”. At times, Durk countered, with the number 69 on Drake’s single, “Laugh Now, Cry Later”.
King Von, 26, engaged in a brawl between two groups of men outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge in downtown Atlanta as the chaos escalated to the point where shots were fired. A total of six people are believed to have shot, three remained at the crime scene and three others fled, but eventually went to hospital.
Three of the men were shot dead from their wounds, including King Von, though it is not clear who shot him.
