Quando Rondo issued a response to Big U after the former Crip leader claimed Rondo reached out for protection following King Von’s death. Quando Rondo clarified that he was not contacting Big U for protection, but was looking to get more involved in community outreach.
“First of all, when I hit unc up, when I hit the big homie up, I was calling that man on some s*** like this. Cuz, I got a lot going on — I got a lot of f*** s*** going on out here. I know that. Cuz is in a lane where cuz got a lot of charity s*** going on — cuz just got a lot of positive s*** going on, which my team was hitting up a lot of more people,” he explained. “It’s time for me to start giving back…It’s time for me to leave this street s*** in the streets and just play my role with this internet s***…I was just trying to give back from the heart. I never once called nobody, no n**** on planet f***** Earth, for no protection. The fuck, cuz? I don’t fear no man.”
In a separate post, Rondo stated that he wouldn’t call another man for protection and has enough money to hire professional security.
After Quando Rondo’s response, Big U elaborated on the matter and said he has no issue with the rapper. He clarified that never spoke to him directly and was only asked if someone from his team had reached out. After voicing his support for the rapper wanting to give back to the community, he revealed that he and Rondo initially connected two years ago but he hadn’t heard from him since and expressed a willingness to meet with the rapper.

Coming off the heels of their docuseries, Hip Hop Uncovered, Big U and Bimmy joined The Breakfast Club to speak on the street’s influence in Hip Hop and much more.
While explaining why young rappers should check in with seasoned street veterans, the former Crips leader revealed that Quando Rondo recently contacted him for help. While the Georgia rapper was cleared of any wrongdoing in the shooting that resulted in King Von’s death, he’s still reportedly facing heat from rivals.
Despite Quando Rondo’s alleged Crip affiliation, Big U said he turned down the rapper’s request for help because young artists tend to only reach out to OGs when there’s a problem that needs to be solved. Big U added that rappers will often claim a set but don’t show support to the neighborhood until they need a favor.
“They got your number, they know who you is, but they feel like they bigger than the program,” Big U said. “You got a lot of dudes that claim my neighborhood that’s in this music s*** but they don’t really f*** with us until it’s a problem, and then they calling. Like Quando Rondo. I just showed Envy, like, you can’t call me now. You can’t call me when the fire hot. You didn’t f*** with me before that. You had my number, you could have called me, you could have did all that. He was around and about but how is that fair to me and how is that fair to our team?”
