King Von Shines Like a VVS 💎 in His Playful “No Flaws” Video
King Von made his name with visceral storytelling and harrowing realism, but he’s not afraid to cut loose and enjoy himself when the occasion calls. Making a case for himself as the perfect rapper and the perfect man, Von shares “No Flaws,” his new video. Produced by frequent Von collaborator Chopsquad DJ, whose spritely piano melody powers the song, “No Flaws” is a chance for Von to show off his melody and charm, following DJ’s piano with lilting punchlines: “Three cars my garage/I just put a horse in it.” In the video, Von works hard to shine hard, maintaining good habits for oral hygiene as he gives a tour of his cash-strewn home. “No Flaws” is the latest video from Grandson, Vol. 1, Von’s recently released debut mixtape, following the dramatic and romantic “F*ck Yo Man”, which has over 2.2 million views on YouTube.

Sandy is a Brooklyn-based trio comprised of Samantha Pathe (synths/vocals), Stephen Pathe (drum machines/samples), and Jeff Carter (synths/vocals). The trio arose from the devastation wrecked by Hurricane Sandy throughout the Jersey Shore in 2012. After the storm destroyed the house Jeff was living in and left him stranded, Stephen offered Jeff a room in his Manasquan, NJ house. Under the same roof, under unfortunate circumstances, the pair naturally started playing music together. They soon brought in Stephen’s sister Samantha to play and write music with them and Sandy – the band – was born.
