How Tall Was King Von?

According to verifiable online sources, King Von was 5 feet 9 inches tall before his untimely death (1.75 m or 175 centimeters). This means that he was average in height for an American male. According to a 2018 report released by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the average height of American men aged 20 and above is 5 feet 9 inches.

There Has Been A Lot of Debate About The Late Rapper’s Height

There have been several debates about King Von’s true height since his death. While many fans believe that the figure put out by several online sources – 5 feet 9 inches- is not even close to his actual height, many others believe that he was not even that tall.

This topic escalated to the point that Reddit conversations about King Von’s height were the norm for most of late 2020 and 2021.

One group of his fans claimed that the late musician’s height was much higher than what was reported in the media. They backed up their claims with pictorial evidence uploaded to Reddit, including a photo of the Too Real hitmaker and record label owner, Lil Durk, standing side by side.

What’s surprising is that Lil Durk was said to be the same height as the late rapper, but from the photo, it was obvious that King Von stood taller than him. According to this group of fans, the generally reported height of the rapper didn’t really do justice to him. They even went further to insist that Von was over 6 feet tall at the time of his death. Some estimated his height to be as high as 6 feet 3 inches.

There were also opposing opinions on the matter of Von’s true height—those who didn’t think the rapper was even up to the reported 5 feet 9 inches. This leaves very few people who actually agree with rapper King Von’s reported height.

Anyways, it is obvious that it is too late to go back and correct any perceived errors because the rapper has been long dead and buried. The only thing that all parties could unanimously agree upon was that Bennett’s physical characteristics were impressive as he sported a buff and athletic physique and radiated masculinity from every pore of his body.

King Von’s Height Compared To Lil Durk

King Von and Lil Durk are clearly the tallest of several American rappers. Lil Durk was the founder of the record label known as Only the Family, which King Von was signed under. Meanwhile, the two rappers were childhood friends who grew up in Chicago together. So, not only did they have similar backgrounds, they also shared a lot of physical similarities as well.

According to verified reports, both men were of the same height at 5 feet 9 inches. They also weighed the same at 72 kg. So King Von was not officially taller than Lil Durk. But as mentioned earlier, the confusion lies in the fact that although they are reported to be the same height officially, in reality (pictures), King Von appears to be the taller of the two rappers.

King Von’s Height Compared With Quando Rondo and YoungBoy Never Broke Again

Quando Rondo stands at a height of 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 70 kilograms. Rondo was four years Bennett’s junior when he was alive. He was also one inch shorter than late American rapper King Von, which isn’t really a significant height difference.

On the other hand, when NBA YoungBoy’s height was compared to King Von’s, it was discovered that the two rappers were of the same height. YoungBoy currently stands 5 feet 9 inches tall. The only significant difference between the two men is that YoungBoy weighs (and still weighs) far less than late Bennett at 67 kg. He is also four years younger than the late rapper.

King Von’s Other Body Measurements

We already know by now that the Chicago-born rapper was estimated to stand 69 inches tall before his death. What is less popular is the subject of his weight. King Von was muscular and had a very sturdy build. His weight, therefore, was very complimentary of his height as he was reported to weigh 72 kg, which is equivalent to 159 lbs. A simple BMI calculation places his body-mass index in the normal range with a value of 22.9 kg/m².

Further body statistics like his chest, biceps, and waist measurements are currently unavailable and might never be. His shoe and clothes sizes are also not public knowledge and can only be obtained by estimation, after all, he is no longer alive to confirm or debunk anything anymore. He also had multiple tattoos on his body, (about 20 of them), dedicated to his hometown and his gang.

Did the Late Rapper Have Abs?

The aforementioned combinations gave the rapper an all-male athletic appearance, and sources never stated whether he had abs or whether he did or not, his physical appearance suggests that he did. According to what is obvious, the rapper achieved his near-perfect physique; the type that could only be achieved through a rigorous workout regimen. However, details about the types of exercises he performed are unavailable.

Nevertheless, based on the limited information we have, the Afro-American was true to type, with black skin and black eyes. King’s natural hair was also black, but he enjoyed coloring it from time to time. He always wore it in dreadlocks and mostly dyed all his locks blond. On the rare occasions when he didn’t tint everything blond, he’d color only a few locks and leave the rest natural. He preferred to use shades in light and dark brown colors.
