Quando Rondo Is Reportedly Facing Up To 20 Years In Prison After Getting Arrested On Federal Dr*g Charges
Rapper Quando Rondo finds himself in legal trouble as he faces federal dr*g charges in Georgia, adding another layer to the state g*ng and d*ug charges against him six months ago.
Most recent updates in the Chatham County jail records detail the 24-year-old rapper, born Tyquian Terrel Bowman, being booked in the federal case. This arrest unfolded in his hometown of Savannah, with a scheduled appearance before a magistrate judge in U.S. District Court set for Tuesday.
The federal indictment, unveiled on Monday, paints a picture of Bowman allegedly conspiring with others to possess and distribute a range of dr*gs, including methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine, and marijuana. The gravity of the charge is underscored by the potential sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison. Notably, the indictment does not directly implicate Bowman in the possession or sale of illegal substances.

This development unfolds against the backdrop of existing state charges in Chatham County Superior Court, where Bowman faced a grand jury indictment back in June. In the state case, he stands accused of managing an illegal street g*ng and participating in a conspiracy to sell marijuana while also attempting to procure hydrocodone pills.
Despite these legal challenges, Bowman's attorney, Kimberly Copeland, has yet to provide a response to inquiries seeking comment as of Tuesday. It's worth noting that Bowman had previously entered a plea of not guilty to the state charges in September.
Quando Rondo, known for hits like "I Remember" and "ABG," initially gained traction that led to a record deal with Atlantic Records. The label released his debut album, "QPac," in 2020, followed by his sophomore effort, "Recovery," which hit the shelves in March.
