Last November, Chicago rapper Dayvon “King Von” Bennett was shot and killed outside Atlanta’s Monaco Hookah Lounge. The gunfire was said to be the result of an altercation between King Von’s crew and Quando Rondo’s crew.
Timothy “Lul Timm” Leeks was charged with murder in Fulton County, Georgia. Sources connected to Lul Timm claimed the 22-year-old associate of Quando Rondo was acting in self-defense. Leeks was released from jail on a $100,000 bond.
Quando Rondo (born Tyquian Terrel Bowman) recently spoke about the ordeal with veteran media personality Angela Yee. Part 1 of that Rondo interview was published on April 12 and quickly became a top trending video on YouTube.
Yee promoted her conversation with the Savannah-raised rapper on The Breakfast Club radio show. Her co-hosts, DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God, reacted to the viral Q&A. Envy claimed people contacted him about his safety because The Breakfast Club could now possibly be seen as supporting Quando Rondo and Lil Tumm.
“It’s just a very serious game so just be careful. I got a bunch of texts like, ‘What’s going on? You good in Chicago?’ I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ I guess you released your interview,” Envy told Yee. “Just be very careful.”
Charlamagne responded, “Yeah, but you can’t get mad at the reporter or the journalist or the personality because they did an interview.” Yee then explained her intention was to just give Quando Rondo an opportunity to tell his side of the story.
Part 2 of Angela Yee’s interview with Quando Rondo was published on the Atlantic recording artist’s official YouTube channel on April 13. The “Angels Wings” rhymer has been promoting the Q&A to his 3.2 million Instagram followers.
