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.

News of Hardo’s acquittal spread like wildfire, causing a litany of Pittsburgh’s biggest rappers to show their support via Twitter and Instagram.

T.I., who acknowledged Hardo’s talent while appearing on MTV News last year, took to IG to post a picture of his rap “potna” with a caption welcoming him back home.

“@trapnhardo found #NOTGuilty yest. “IM doin dis for black & yellow FREE HARDO!!!!” Guess God was listening. Come home & let’s get back to da GRIND my guy!!!!!! #lifeisgood #godisgreat #hustlegangovererrrrthang,” he wrote.
