While speaking to HipHopDX last month, Von named his OTF label boss Lil Durk (along with Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane) as the inspiration behind his hustle when it comes to making real money from music.
“That’s the first person, him and my homie Duke, I told them I’m going to start rapping and shit,” Von explained. “Durk told me whatever I do I have to go all the way with that shit. If I’m going to do this shit I have to do that shit for real. That’s what he told me.”
Von’s most recent project Levon James features Durk on two tracks, as well as YNW Melly, NLE Choppa, G Herbo and more.
In the same interview, Von credited his mom with keeping him safe when he was growing up in the streets of Chicago.
“Chicago in itself is fucked up, you feel what I’m saying?” he said. “For me it was decent, I had my momma with me that made sure I was straight out there. I lost my daddy when I was like 10 and he was in and out of jail. But you know, when you have your momma out there you know you going to be good.”
And now thanks to his success, he gets to pay her back for everything she did.
