In a recent turn of events, the media was abuzz with reports of the arrest of the young and talented 24-year-old Quando Rondo on drug & gang charges. The news hit the hip-hop community like a shockwave, leaving everyone astonished.
However, the veil of silence surrounding the case was finally lifted on Tuesday (June 20) as additional information came to light. It has now come to our knowledge that a staggering 18 individuals, besides the rapper himself, have been indicted in connection with the incident. The gravity of the situation escalated further when it was revealed that those involved are not only facing drug-related charges but also grappling with gang allegations. Specifically, Quando Rondo stands accused of holding a managerial role within the local chapter of the renowned Rollin' 60s.
According to the latest report from WJCL, the diligent team at the Chatham County District Attorney's Office has compiled a comprehensive 49-count indictment against Quando Rondo and his co-defendants, laying out a range of charges.

The accusations span a multitude of offenses, including the unlawful use of cell phones for illicit activities and active affiliation with criminal gangs. Quando himself faces two charges of conspiracy to violate Georgia's controlled substances act, one charge of participating in criminal street gang activity, and the use of communication facilities in the commission of a felony involving controlled substances. Notably, the indictment highlights a specific incident on June 4 when the talented "ABG" artist allegedly embarked on a trip to Macon, Georgia, purportedly to meet a marijuana supplier.
While the arrest of Quando Rondo didn't come as a complete surprise, as he voluntarily surrendered himself to authorities on June 16, his early morning tweet sent out to his loved ones, including Paris, Italy, Kiyah, his mother, Tess, his grandmother, and Freida, hinted at the impending turmoil. "I Love You... I'll Be Bacc!" he wrote, leaving his followers in a state of concern and curiosity.
To date, the accused gang member has refrained from issuing an official statement regarding his arrest, leaving his fans and the public yearning for more clarity on the matter. It is worth noting that the hip-hop industry has witnessed a surge in crime-related incidents, making it increasingly challenging to keep up with the multitude of ongoing cases.
The trials of YSL, YFN RICO, and YNW Melly continue to captivate attention, with the latter's proceedings advancing this month in Broward County. Ironically, Quando Rondo had recently expressed his desire to maintain a greater level of privacy in his personal life, a sentiment he shared just weeks before his recent arrest.
