Quando Rondo‘s attorney mentioned music legends Led Zeppelin and Ray Charles while arguing to secure his client’s release on bond following an arrest on drug charges.

The Atlanta rapper made an appearance in court for a bond hearing on Friday (June 23) and submitted a letter of support from his label, Atlantic Records, according to Georgia news outlet WTOC 11.

“He’s got the support of one of the greatest record labels in this country. The same record label as Led Zepplin and Ray Charles, that’s his label,” Rondo’s defense attorney Jonah Pine told the court. “They’ve provided a letter to us, it’s very heartfelt and talks about his career.”

As part of their argument for his bond, his attorneys say that ankle monitoring would be difficult due to the amount of travel required. The state argued in response that because of his suspected involvement in the Rollin’ 60s gang, he is dangerous and likely to run away.
