“Basically, he drove home, pulled in his driveway, someone had been sitting waiting at his house in the backyard and they ran up and shot him once in the head,” said his brother-in-law Richard Hannah.

Police have not provided a motive for Nando’s murder as of yet. Family members do not believe it was a robbery attempt because electronic equipment and cash were left at the scene.

Several members of the Atlanta Hip Hop community issued condolences via social media.

    Nando really put artists on down here in Atlanta. I don’t see how any person walkin this earth feels he has the power to take something the Lord has given to everyone, LIFE. Nobody fears God anymore, nor respects him seems to me. Nando will be missed.

      I’m thinkin’ bout movin’ to Atlanta – good move ?



      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        read My comment above about Chicago

      • Tre C

        just on percentages. you got a better chance of getting killed in Atlanta than in Chicago..

      • lola lovely la’shaun

        Really? How you figure?

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        yeah, I Live in Chicago – been there for decades – I travel the whole city and never have problems – just gotta mind yo’ business, be cool with anybody, and don’t flash money

      • i’mreloaded!

        Yeah, just do your research on the area you movin to. Southside and East Side got the most goin on but there is a lot more crime in them areas. DeKalb, Clayton, and Fulton can be wild. Cheap cost of living down here.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Thank Y’all

        If you on some hot shit, stay outta Clayton County. Sheriff Victor Hill is mean motherf*cker. Got a real nepoleon complex. He just beat mad fed charges too. But its mad cheap to live there tough. Fulton County cops don’t mess with you as much unless you’re doing some major sh*t.

      • atlantahiphopshop

        Victor Hill got several of my homies life sentences. Clayco is the worst place for black people in Atlanta, I remember having to go to Lovejoy back in the days. SMH R.I.P Nando. I knew the dude personally. Dudes hate hard in Atl. these days for small sh!t.

      • Da Ledgendary

        Yea he has a hard on for sending up dope boys. And spent 2 months in Clayton Co jail after I was released from prison for an old misdemeanor that I tried to take care of before Gwinnett County (They’ll drag your ass too) sent me up. Clayton Co denied my request and waited til I finished my bid which is illegal. I should have gotten time served because I was in prison but Clayco play by there own rules. And Victor Hill killed the 4 for 1 program the previous sheriff had in place and only let you work off 2 days for every 7 days your work as a trusty. The nigga would pop up in the trusty dorm damn near everyday unexpected and you had to have your shit on point, face the wall and yell “Sheriff on Deck!” or everybody shit getting tossed and you’ll have 5 minutes to clean everything up. I’ve seen more than few people buck get their head stomped in by Vic’s goon squad.

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      dam this could have been done by someone he didnt put on. R.I.P Nando!

  • sakiru oresanwo

    If you’ve been to strip clubs in ATL, Nando was the DJ who put so many people on. Really gave them a chance to shine. Sad shit, he was a good dude

  • MrNoName2K

    R.I.P. More unnecessary bullsh*t..

Jeezy too sending ya lil homie aft Gucci’s chain like you a boss and got him killed b/c again …gangster-ism ends in death one way or another…either a physical death or a mental one where you in the slammer and to all yall niggas supporting these clowns you may as well give your money to some neo nazi’s or the klan cuz these niggas do not give two shits abt you or your family and they are selling you death on a damn cd and trying to turn ya daughter, wives, sisters and mommas into bi sexual twerk happy ho bitches ..#niggasizlost

    R.I.P. to the brotha, and God bless his family.
    I Know we don’t have all the facts, but this obviously is not a random shooting. This was a hit I wonder if the shooter was hired, or if it was strictly personal. Either way it was not cool.
