Hustle Gang affiliate Hardo is living the good life again after reportedly being found not guilty this week after being thrown behind bars on drug charges last year. #WelcomeHome
According to reports, Hardo received the life-changing news this past Monday (June 9).
Wilkinsburg rapper Hardo is finally back home after he was found not guilty Monday morning (June 9) of drug charges after appearing before a Common Pleas judge for a nonjury trial. Hardo, who is affiliated with rap stalwarts Mac Miller and T.I., was arrested August 30, 2013 and charged with possession with intent to deliver after officers pulled him over for running a stop sign and discovered 250 individual stamp bags of heroin in a closed bag under the driver’s seat.

Hardo’s arrest made major headlines back in late August.
Wilkinsburg police pulled Mr. Barnett over Aug. 30 after they said he ran a stop sign. Inside the vehicle, police said they found heroin, which Mr. White contended belonged to a friend of the vehicle’s owner. That friend, a juvenile, was poised to accept responsibility for the heroin, but is being held in a facility in another county on unrelated matters and couldn’t make it to court today, Mr. White said.
