Since a youngin,' King Von has been in and out of jail. In 2017, Von walked away a free man after witnesses failed to testify. While in jail, Von got his nickname “Grandson,” as he explains during an episode of “Welcome to my Neighborhood: O'Block.”
“The term ‘Grandson' came from when I was in jail. Some old head, he got to calling me ‘Grandson' and shit. Then he said I be acting how I move. They started calling me grandson in there. I been running with it ever since,” Von explained.
