Pittsburgh area rapper Hardo may be facing serious drug charges after police in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania pulled the 21-year-old over and discovered him with copious amounts of heroin.
CBS Pittsburgh reports that Hardo, a Mac Miller affiliate, was found with over 250 individual baggies of heroin in his car.
Police say that the young rapper was not carrying an ID, and was driving with a suspended license. Police also say Hardo attempted to run away from the scene, but was tackled to the ground. Hardo claimed the car was owned by a friend in the hospital.
The emcee recently signed a reported $3 million record deal with Atlantic Records, reportedly with the help of T.I. Tip recently complemented the young man in a July interview. However, HipHopWired reports that both Atlantic and Mac Miller’s camps deny being affiliated with Hardo.
Hardo is currently being held on $25,000 bond.
Mac Miller has repeatedly discussed drug use, revealing in January that criticism of his Blue Slide Park project made him turn to drugs.
