(GEM RADIO)- After losing his friend Lul Pab in a recent shooting, rapper Quando Rondo is ready to make changes. To do so, he is laying his flag and turning his back on gang life. His efforts have been receiving pushback, however.
In his Instagram stories, the rapper declared that he is severing ties with the Rollin’ 60s neighborhood crisp gang. He confessed that the mayhem had become too much, and he wanted to divert his focus to his family and himself.
Quando Rondo’s Decision
“It’s time for me to spend time to myself and free myself from a lot of people,” Quando Rondo wrote on his Instagram Story. “My Main Manz Gone & a lot more shit I’m cool on a lot of shit if I feel like you not with me it’s no reason for me To be holding on to you no need to shake your hand or fake some with you! I’m Living Life How I wanna live life whatever I wanna do ima do it you gone either gone get with it or get lost.”
He later posted other posts about his departure from gang life in his stories. According to Rondo, he has no intention of being “jumped out,” as he wants to leave that entire life while stating his set is not loyal to him.
“I’m my own man. I layed my flag down. I’m not NH yall ain’t gone ride for a n-gga foreal it’s no sense being apart of yall shit y’all fw the opposition,” he wrote. “Idgaf who feel hit Fucc u and if you can’t feel where I’m coming from on this you a bitch ass n-gga cuz it doesn’t take rocket science to c what the fuck going on errbody all ready hate me. I ain’t tripping on the extra hate. I’m bout to focus on my family, the ones who gone really drop a tear if I die !!!!!”
Once You in … You In
This post triggered several reactions from rappers who chimed into the conversation. Their comments all pointed toward a common and mutual response “that’s not how the game works. Julio Foolio, one of them, wrote in his Instagram stories, “Dawg homeboy died in Cali he trynna squash beef and throw his flag in it’s too late for that nephew.”
Crip J. Stone had a few words for Rondo in his story: “You can’t drop yo flag and say you not NH no mo. N-gga goes to the hood and get you put off. Don’t cry now. We lose homies all the time. Not everybody gon ride. You was a goofy/internet banger anyway.”
Quando Rondo responded afterward to anyone with something to say about his decision. “Before you talk about another n-gga sit back and think like I don’t even got 200 bandz because you need way more than that to stand with me! Y’all n-ggas still think 20k is up. I can care less what somebody think get in my way, and ima knock you down, simple NO CAP.”
Lul Pab’s shooting
Quando was the intended target in the Los Angeles shooting on august 19th. The rapper and friends were at a local gas station when three men in a white vehicle pulled up alongside his black Cadillac Escalade and opened fire. 23-year-old Lul Pab was shot multiple times during the incident. Lulu was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
