According to rap blog Chicago Scene 88an FBI report cites an unnamed witness they spoke to in August 2020, just weeks after Duck’s murder, who stated that King Von allegedly initially offered $50,000 for anyone who killed Duck before later raising the reward to $100,000.
The witness, who claims King Von celebrated FBG Duck’s murder by buying everyone at O’Block a new chain, also identified the alleged shooters, including Marcus “Muwop” Smart, who the witness claims carried out several murders on behalf of O’Block.
The doctors also state that the gun used in Duck’s murder can be linked to a dozen other cases.
HipHopDX has not been able to verify the authenticity of the documents shared by Chicago Scene 88 at this stage.
FBG Duck was gunned down in broad daylight on August 4, 2020, in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Authorities said four people got out of two different vehicles and opened fire.
Over a year later in October 2021, five suspects were arrested for the murder – Charles “C-Murda” Liggins, Kenneth “Kenny” Roberson, Tacarlos “Los” Offerd, Christopher “C Thang” Thomas and the aforementioned Marcus “Muwop” Smart. They are expected to stand trial on October 2, 2023.
At a news conference after the arrests, FBI agents addressed the violence that permeated the Windy City and pointed the finger at the local practice scene.
“What’s happening on social media and what’s happening in music videos that are on YouTube, especially in the drill-rap genre, it shows you what’s happening in the city,” the agent explained. “It shows you exactly what’s happening in the city, which is that people are flooding the streets to commit acts of violence and then either brag about acts of violence or talk about how they’re going to retaliate through other acts of violence, and it happens regularly.
“Again, that’s why it’s important that we as law enforcement officers are able to investigate and hold people accountable for the actions they commit. For example, you can go on the internet right now, you can see people in music videos and guns everywhere.”
King Von and FBG Duck’s problems centered on the long-standing beef between their respective gangs, the Black Disciples and the Gangster Disciples – with Von having been the grandson of the founder of the former.
Before Von was also tragically gunned down in November 2020, he claimed he and FBG Duck had pushed their beef before the latter had been killed. While considering releasing a collaboration with Duck in a post, Von also discussed his mission to bring their town together — but ended up revisiting the issues they were having, which many believed was an indication that he was trolling.
“Me and Duck settled our differences right before he passed,” he tweeted with a 100 emoji. “We talked about bringing everyone together as a whole and changing society for the better. I still stand on that shit. Every step of the way I think about you. Even though you dissed my dead homies and family.”
The diss Von referenced was Duck’s July 2020 single “Dead Bitches” whereupon he mentions several deceased Chicago citizens.
Von continued, “KingVon ft. Fbg And. I was gone, stick to my album. But if mfs want it imma drop dat b*tch today. Or keep it and put durk on it 2???”
However, Duck’s mother quickly responded to the post, claiming that Von was lying and that her son would never have worked with him.
“PSA PLEASE DON’T FALL FOR THIS SHIT,” LaSheena Weekly wrote on Instagram. “THAT’S A LIE. MY SON NEVER WANTED TO DO A SONG WITH HIM. WHEN HE SAID HE WOULD DO A SONG WITH THE OPPS, HE CAN’T CANCEL ONE OF THEM. DIS IS A DISGRACE.. NOW THINK BUT MY SON WOULD DO ONE SANG WITH HIM AFTER POST DIS? KNOW MY SON N HIS HEART HE WANTED TO BEAT HIS ASS BUT TO CHANGE THE WORLD HE WANTED. DAT MAN I BORN #IAMDUCK.”
