Rapper Quando Rondo has used music-making as the platform to address a recent shooting that led to the death of three men, including King Von. On November 20, Rondo dropped a new track 'End of Story' which directly confronts Von's Only The Family crew and the altercation and affirmed reports that he was acting out of "self-defense" with his involvement.

According to XXL Magazine, earlier reports claimed that a source close to Rondo said that he wasn't trying to fight and Von acted as the aggressor. 'End of Story' even mentions that a $1 million bounty was allegedly put on his head to have him killed. 

On the track, Rondo says Von's crew shouldn't have approached him and the reason for his silence following the incident. "Sometimes the best response is none at all. You probably would've left your mans, that ain’t one hundred, dawg," he raps in the chorus. In the first verse, he raps, "Blood on your brother on the ground, gon’ pick your mans up. Damn right we scrеaming self-defense, he shouldn’t have never put his hands on me. Look at the footage, that’s all the evidence, see them p****y [expletive] shouldn’t have ran up on me. Who the fuck said that I was hidin’? I’m still ridin’ ’round with them bands on me."

Over on Twitter, the subject of the song and shooting has sparked some debate. "[expletive] really be cappin in they raps," says a user. One user wrote, "Again, he told Timmy to shoot Von. We saw y’all talking on camera before Von walked up. Quando was scared!" "He said some valid stuff tho! if it was von people that killed quando would people really give them same reaction? he just clearing it up. if von people would have shot at quando because von was losing that fight then y'all would've said 'oh he ride for his' dont b biased," noted another fan.



 

 



 



 

Meanwhile, other comments include concerns for the rapper's safety. "Meanwhile if he “not hiding”, he need to be," says a user while another writes, "Cuh acting like he hard, his days are coming to an end." Another user wrote, "It will be a miracle if he make it to the new year." A worried fan added, "I wish our young black men stop this madness."



 



 



 



 

We have to second the last fan comment and only hope that all involved would be "the better man," and cease to dish out more hostility while letting the law deal with what has already been done. Lives have been lost and families affected, regardless of who is guilty. Additionally, if career competition has been a factor in creating violence, let your music speak louder than your weapons. There are bigger things that 2020 calls for that can be addressed in music.
