King Von, 26, died after getting shot during a gunfight that broke out near an Atlanta nightclub on November 6 in Georgia.
Lil Durk – who was signed to the same label as King Von – paid homage to his friend with the Backdoor music video, which dropped on Sunday.
The rapper announced the video with the caption: "Midnight. I love y’all like family #doit4von."
The 28-year-old started up the hashtag after Von King's death, writing: “MY TWIN GONE. I LOVE YOU BABY BRO – D ROY!!!!!”
In the clip, the Chicago rapper wore King Von's favorite chain necklace.
The lyrics shed light on Chicago rapper Lil Durk's struggles growing up in the streets and issues with the legal system.
King Von died after a fight between two groups of men outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge in downtown Atlanta escalated to shots being fired, TMZ reported.
Six people were allegedly shot with three staying at the scene of the crime and being picked up by EMT's, and three others fleeing.
Three of those shot died from their wounds, including King Von, though it's unclear who shot him.
King Von was one of several rappers who were killed in 2020.
Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was slammed for apparently mocking King Von's tragic death just hours after the rapper was shot.
Blogger DJ Akademiks took to Instagram and suggested that Lil Durk may have learned of Von's death from fans while streaming on Instagram Live.
Tekashi posted a laughing face emoji in the comments, sparking outrage from King Von's fans.
