Shortly after he took to his Instagram Live to confirm that Von, unfortunately, passed away. He also posted another post and said, “RIP my Bestfriend. The only n*gga to listen to me word for word from day 1. We sat on FaceTime for hours making songs together. Every bar had a meaning and every song was a part of our soul. Every moment meant something and to grow wit you made me feel like I was a real producer. I love you, bro.”
