Over the past weekend, Lul Tim has been cleared of felony murder charges linked to the shooting of King Von in November 2020.
On Sunday (August 20), reports emerged stating that the charges against Lul Tim had been dropped. The rapper’s legal representative, Noah Pines, confirmed this development through a statement provided to XXL. Pines clarified, “The case against Mr. Leeks was dismissed prior to ever being indicted.”
The incident initially unfolded on the evening of November 6, 2020, when a violent altercation between two factions erupted outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge in Atlanta. The situation rapidly escalated into a gunfire exchange involving King Von, Lul Tim, and Quando Rondo. This confrontation reportedly resulted in three fatalities and several injuries.
Lul Tim was apprehended the following day and formally charged with felony murder. In March 2021, he was granted a $100,000 bond. Nevertheless, his legal issues persisted, culminating in a subsequent arrest in October 2022 on unrelated drug-related allegations.
In response to the news, Asian Doll, Von’s former girlfriend, posted a tweet that has since been deleted. She expressed, “Because the police said Tim ain’t kill him, the police did.”
Seizing the opportunity to leverage the renewed attention, Lul Tim quickly released a song titled “Left A Stain.” The accompanying music video featured explicit references to the murder case and depicted the removal of his house arrest ankle monitor.
In his lyrics, he conveyed, “I shared my good news with them. I’m on the verge of winning this case.” Further along in the song, the artist hailing from Georgia rapped, “My attorney triumphed over the accusation, it wasn’t a challenge, they recognize my name. Invested 20 in my loyal friend, forever marked; our impact endures.”
In contrast, King Von’s posthumous album, “What It Means To Be King,” made its debut at the second spot on the Billboard 200 chart. It achieved sales of 59,000 album-equivalent units within its inaugural week.
