Aspiring rapper Quando Rondo narrowly avoided another attempt on his life on Friday.

According to reports, Quando was at a gas station across from the Beverly Center around 11:30 a.m. when a white 4 door sedan pulled alongside his Cadillac Escalade. Three people got out of the sedan and opened fire.

Rondo's gang affiliate Lul Pablo was killed in the shooting, but Rondo was not injured. After the shooting, Rondo hopped in the driver's seat of the Escalade and drove 2 blocks away before flagging down a sheriff's deputy.

In this video, Rondo reacts to the death of his friend, Lul Pablo.
 

 
O'block and Black Disciples members celebrated online when they thought Rondo was dead. But Rondo's family announced he was not injured.

Rondo's aunt posted an update on Instagram stories on Friday: "I love everyone but please give my family time to call me," she wrote. "You guys are clogging my line. We're fine. Maybe I should reword it, he's fine. I spoke with him myself."

In a follow-up post, she wrote: "I know y'all are concerned but please stop calling me!!! Please understand I can't talk to him [and] not none of the people I need to be talkin' to for him if y'all keep calling!! I just kept answering because I think y'all him! Please stopppppp."

The news comes a month after Rondo, 23, announced on Instagram that he was in a hospital fighting for his life after overdosing on lean, a concoction of prescription codeine and a soft drink.

In May 2021 someone shot at the aspiring rapper outside a Blackshear, Georgia convenience store parking lot. He was not injured.

Rondo is a marked man after he was involved in drill rapper King Von's murder in Atlanta on November 6, 2020.

Rondo and Von were fighting outside a hookah lounge when Rondo's associate Timothy Leeks, a.k.a. Lul Timm, shot King Von twice. Von was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Leeks is currently awaiting trial on murder charges. Rondo was not charged.

A cryptic post on social media earlier this month suggested time has run out for both Leeks and Rondo.

In the post, incarcerated drill rapper RondoNumbaNine (pictured upper left) shouted out King Von (right) on his birthday. RondoNumbaNine said he had the names of King Von and deceased Chicago shooter T.Roy (bottom left) tattooed on his body. He concluded his post: "That get back coming soon for em."

"Get back" is street slang for revenge or retaliation for a past murder.

RondoNumbaNine is currently serving time in prison for the murder of Javan Boyd, a cab driver who was shot 7 times on February 22, 2014.

Aspiring rapper Quando Rondo, 23, is in a hospital fighting for his life, according to a post on his Instagram page.

Sources tell Sandrarose.com that Rondo is in acute kidney failure after drinking lean, a concoction of prescription codeine and hard candy mixed in a soft drink.

Someone updated Rondo's IG page with the message: "pray for me, in da hospital fightin for my life [sic]." The post ended with the hashtag #fuclean.

Quando has over 3.7 million followers on Instagram.

Rondo was in a different kind of fight with Chicago drill rapper King Von in 2020 when Von was fatally shot by Rondo's brother Timothy Leeks, a.k.a. Lul Timm, outside a hookah lounge in Atlanta.

Leeks is out on bond awaiting trial.

Rondo has been a wanted man ever since Von's death. Rumor has it that there's a million dollar price tag on Leeks' and Rondo's heads.

Both Rondo's and Leeks' rap careers were derailed after the shooting. Rondo travels with a huge entourage to protect him from aspiring rappers and shooters trying to make a name for themselves by ending his life.

Rapper Lil Keed died from multiple organ failure after drinking lean in May. He was only 24.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story.

A new photo of NBA YoungBoy on house arrest in Utah has fans wondering if he's sending a cryptic message to drill rapper Lil Durk (right).

Lil Durk apparently disses YoungBoy in his verse on Cardi B's new single "Hot Sh*t."

Lil Durk raps: "I know that Von hit her / She pulled up on my block in Jimmy Choo..."

Rumors swirled that Lil Durk's pal King Von was killed in Atlanta because he shared photos of himself hanging out with one of YoungBoy's baby mamas, Jania Meshell.

You may recall YoungBoy body slammed Jania during a fit of rage in a Florida hotel in 2018. The 22-year-old father of 8 was arrested for this incident.
 

 
According to The Blast, King Von and Jania were intimate and he bought her a pair of Jimmy Choo's to show his gratitude.

Jania reportedly showed off her new shoes on social media.

Fans say that's the "Jimmy Choo" reference in Durk's lyric.

On Nov. 6, 2020 King Von was involved in a fistfight with YoungBoy's associate, aspiring rapper Quando Rondo, outside a hookah bar in downtown Atlanta.

During the fight, Von was shot and killed by aspiring rapper Lul Timm, who is out on bond while awaiting trial for Von's murder.

Lil Durk (left), pictured with King Von (right), routinely disses YoungBoy in his rap lyrics.

YoungBoy can't respond because he's on house arrest and the feds are watching.

So he released this photo on social media that shows him flexing his muscles.

YoungBoy's fans are convinced he's sending a subliminal message to Lil Durk.

Listen to "Hot Sh*t" below.

Rapper Quando Rondo cheated death early Sunday when a bullet with his name on it struck an associate in the hand. Then injured man was treated for a gunshot wound at a hospital.

Rondo, born Tyquian Terrel Bowman, was traveling with a large entourage when they stopped at a convenience store in Blackshear. The group was in the parking lot of the convenience store when shots rang out.

Police believe the gunman, who opened fire from across the street, was aiming for the rapper who has a multi-million dollar bounty on his head.

Rondo, who turned 22 last month, was involved in a fistfight with Chicago rapper King Von when a member of his entourage, Lul Tim, shot Von outside an Atlanta nightclub in November.

Von (pictured in August 2020) was pronounced dead at an Atlanta hospital. He was just 26.

Lul Tim was recently released from the Fulton County Jail on $100,000 bond, reportedly paid by Rondo.

Rather than lay low after Von's death, Rondo has repeatedly taunted Von's gang affiliates online.

But offline he surrounds himself with a large crew of hangers ons in the hopes that one of them will catch a bullet meant for him.

Rondo was not charged in Von's murder, but his life is in constant danger. Rumor has it that rapper Lil Durk (pictured left with Von) put a $5 million bounty on Rondo's head.

A King Von fan wrote this comment on Timm's IG page: "You are a living dead... When you go out of jail just remember this. F*** your life pu**y. You are next."

Rapper Meek Mill (right) is speaking out about the escalating gang war on Atlanta's streets between factions led by rappers Quando Rondo and Lil Durk (pictured left).

Chicago rapper King Von, 26, was fatally shot by Rondo's crew member Timothy Leeks, 22, during a fistfight between Von and Rondo in Atlanta on Nov. 6.

Word on the street is Lil Durk's crew is gunning for Rondo, 21, who they believe is personally responsible for Von's death.

Durk, 28, reportedly bought every table at a nightclub where Rondo (pictured) was scheduled to perform this week. The club promoter canceled the show.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Meek, who is friends with Lil Durk, urged other rappers to "pick a side" rather than commenting on Von's death.

Meek tweeted: "Pretty soon everybody gone have to pick a side .... too much real sh*t going on too be cool wit everybody! [sic]"

Meek's message likely means more blood will be shed on Atlanta's pristine streets.

Hopefully, the mayor's office is monitoring the situation on social media before innocent lives are lost in Atlanta, which is now dubbed Chiraq South.

The Internet reacted with outrage after someone leaked grisly photos of slain rapper King Von laying on an autopsy table.

Von, real name Dayvon Bennett, was shot by a member of Savannah rapper Quando Rondo's crew during a fistfight outside a hookah lounge in downtown Atlanta early Friday.

The 26-year-old gangster-turned rapper later died during surgery at Grady Hospital. The pictures were likely taken after his body was taken to the morgue across the street from Grady Hospital, where autopsies are conducted.

The alleged autopsy images were originally uploaded to Instagram by user @fyndeeboyy who quickly deleted the pictures. But the graphic images circulating on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

It's tradition for Chicago gang members to post autopsy or open casket photos of deceased "opps" (opposition or gang rivals) to disrespect them even in death.

One King Von fan responded to the images circulating on Reddit.com:

"That sh*t is sick. Imagining [sic] people messing and taking pictures of your lifeless body when you die. If this happened to king von imagine how many pictures probably get taken and never get leaked."

Others were not so polite. Gang members affiliated with O-block, a notorious city block in Chicago, took to Instagram and TikTok to voice their anger and frustration over the photos (see below).

But that's not all they're mad about.

King Von's sister, Kayla B. clapped back at rap mogul Tip "T.I." Harris he shared an Instagram post asking out-of-towners to kill each other on their own home turfs.

T.I.'s post also sparked outrage among different Chicago gang factions -- some of whom have booked flights to Atlanta. Below is an alleged veiled threat to T.I.

Hopefully, Atlanta's mayor's office is monitoring the situation on social media. Atlanta's streets are about to become a bloodbath.

An affiliate of rapper Quando Rondo was charged with the fatal shooting of rapper King Von during a brawl outside an Atlanta hookah club early Friday.

Von, born Dayvon Daquan Bennett, is one of three people shot dead and three wounded during a fight outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge in downtown Atlanta.

Police arrested Timothy Leeks, 22, who allegedly shot Bennett who was fighting with Quando, real name Tyquian Terrel Bowman, 21.

Leeks, aka Lul Timm (pictured right), was then shot and wounded in the leg by another man. Leeks was arrested by Atlanta police at Grady Hospital where he went to seek treatment for his leg wound.

"The homicide of Bennett is closed with this arrest," Atlanta police spokeswoman Marla Jean Rooker told AJC.com.

Video footage from the club shows Bennett laying mortally wounded in the street with a gunshot wound to his left side.

Bowman (wearing black) is on top of Bennett, attempting to remove Bennett's coveted diamond-studded "O-Block" chain to keep as a trophy.

Bennett's chain was designed by Ice Box, a premium jewelry store located in the Buckhead neighborhood on Atlanta's northwest side.

The chain signifies O-Block, the notorious 6400 block of South Martin Luther King Drive on Chicago's South Side. It is considered the most dangerous block in all of Chicago, and it is where Michelle Obama lived as a child.

The block is named after Gangster Disciples member Odee Perry, 20, who was shot and killed by Tooka gang member Gakirah "KI" Barnes when she was only 13.

Years after killing Perry (pictured left), 17-year-old Barnes (pictured right) was shot nine times while walking to a girlfriend's house for lunch on April 11, 2014.

Bennett was named as the triggerman in her death, but he was never charged.

Asian Da Brat reportedly regrets saying she only dates men with at least 3 bodies. "Body" is slang for a murder victim or murdering someone.

The Instagram model and aspiring rapper, who is formerly known as Asian Doll, sparked furious debate online when she tweeted her unusual preference in men last month.

The 23-year-old Sagittarius, born Misharron Jamesha Allen, said she won't speak to a man unless he's a killer. And not just any killer -- a serial killer.

"Please have at least 3 body's [sic] before you talk to me Boy I like killers," she tweeted.

But friends say she had a change of heart as she mourns her ex-boyfriend, gangster-turned rapper King Von, who was shot and killed in Atlanta early Friday. They broke up sometime in August.

She tweeted on Friday: "I wanna die 2 Shid it feel like I'm dead already."

Friends say she now regrets glorifying gang bangers and killers.

Von King, who was born Dayvon Daquan Bennett, was shot during a street fight with rival rapper and gang member Quando Rondo outside a hookah lounge around 3 a.m.

Friends transported Bennett to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Bennett, 26, is linked to at least 10 murders on Chicago's South Side including the unsolved murders of gang bangers Gakirah "KI" Barnes in 2014 and Joseph "Lil JoJo" Coleman in 2012.

Bennett was charged with murdering a man and wounding several others at a house party in Chicago in 2014. He spent three-and-a-half-years in prison.
