In 2020, he and his crew were involved in an altercation with King Von and members of his crew outside an Atlanta nightclub that resulted in Von being shot to death.

Rondo was involved in another shooting in 2022 and while he escaped unharmed, his friend Lul Pab was killed.

At the time, he released a statement which said: “Quando was involved in a shooting yesterday evening [Friday] which resulted in the untimely death of another’s young man’s life; he himself didn’t sustain any injuries during the shooting and is safe.”
