King Von was buried over the weekend in a private ceremony after being shot and killed in Atlanta on Friday, Nov. 6.

His family released a statement this past Tuesday to thank his fans for support and to say they'll continue to roll out his album Welcome To O’Block. The project came out just a week and a couple of days before Von died.

"Thank you to everyone who has showed their outpouring of love for King Von. You all played a massive role in Von's accomplishments, and by continuing to play his music and sharing your stories about how he has inspired and influenced you all, you're keeping his legacy alive," the statement read. "To celebrate Von's artistry, vision, and the immense love that he had for his fans, we will be continuing his roll out of Welcome to O'Block, while working to share unreleased music and interviews that he devoted his creativity into completing. Von had also been working on new endeavors that we will be announcing down the line. Love, Von's family and team."

After Von's death, T.I. rubbed many the wrong way when he told people who aren't from his hometown of Atlanta to handle their beefs in their own city. He's since remained silent on the subject after first responding to the backlash.
