Police Chief Speaks

The Atlanta police Deputy Chief Timothy Peek spoke on the shooting.

“That physical altercation escalated into an exchange of gunfire with those groups. Two police officers who were working at that particular club, or lounge, noticed the altercation and engaged some of the people involved. There was an exchange of gunfire with police as well.”

King Von Disses Akon

King Von isn’t giving anybody a pass for associating with a snitch. Von made that crystal clear when he said he’ll “never forgive” Akon for doing a song with Tekashi 6ix9ine after Tek infamously cooperated with authorities. Since getting out of jail, Tekashi isn’t as hot as he used to be, but he did drop a new album and has worked with the likes of Nicki Minaj and Akon. King Von, who is part of Lil Durk’s Only The Family crew, isn’t here for any of it.
