Last week, it was reported that 24-year-old Quando Rondo had been arrested on drug charges. The news quickly sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community. After a few days without updates, more information was released on Tuesday (June 20). We now know that 18 others have been indicted along with the rapper.

Update on Quando Rondo's Arrest
As XXL reports, the indictment notably mentions a June 4 trip to Macon, Georgia. At the time, the "ABG" artist was allegedly travelling to pay a marijuana supplier. On the bright side, Quando's arrest wasn't a total surprise. He turned himself into authorities on June 16, sending out a telling tweet to his loved ones early that morning. "I Love You Paris, Italy, Kiyah, My Mama, Tess, My Grandma, Freida," he wrote. "I'll Be Bacc!"
At this time, the accused gang member has yet to release an official statement regarding his arrest. Amid the mass hip-hop crime wave that's unfolding, it's been increasingly difficult to keep up with the news coming from various cases. The YSL and YFN RICO trials are still unfolding, and YNW Melly is in court this month as his proceedings move forward in Broward County. Interestingly enough, Quando Rondo was venting about wishing he had kept more of his personal life private just weeks before his recent arrest.
