According to TMZ, Never Broke Again rapper Quando Rondo was arrested today on various drug charges. The outlet claims that he was booked for two counts of conspiracy to violate Georgia's controlled substances law, and one count of participating in criminal activity affiliated with a street gang, as well as one count of illegal use of a cell phone to facilitate a drug deal. Records say that the artist is currently behind bars in Chatham County.

Quando Rondo, along with 18 other people, was indicted for allegedly conducting drug deals from October of 2022 to June of this year. Prosecutors are claiming that in April, he told one of the other indicted individuals to negotiate prices for marijuana, and later went to Macon, GA to purchase the goods. The artist also allegedly managed the "Rollin’ 60’s” gang, and told other members to avoid carrying weapons in vehicles he was in.

The rapper and his entourage, including Lul Pab, were attacked in August of 2022. The attack left one member of the crew with minor injuries, and Quando Rondo was caught in the gunfire. Lul Pab was also shot in the attack, eventually leading to his death. Quando Rondo previously told Angela Yee that the incident felt like "an out-of-body experience."
