News of Rob’s death was also confirmed by Revolt TV, owned by Diddy, as well as Rob’s former bad boy label colleague Mario Winans. He said: “That hit my heart ……. We will NEVER forget you brother! RIP BLACK ROB! “
Many fans became aware of Black Rob’s condition last week when DJ Self shared a video of Black Rob in a hospital bed talking about pain. He also showed love for DMX, who sadly passed away last week at the age of 50. In the video, Rob said, “I don’t know what the pain is, but the pain is insane. It helps me and makes me realize that I have a lot more to do. “
Two days later, another video was released as an update to show that Black Rob had been released from the hospital and that he was explaining his health and life situation. At the time, he said in the video that he had had ongoing health problems for the past five years, including four strokes.
DJ Self then published a separate message stating that Rob’s kidneys were also failing and that he was using his platform to report Rob’s condition and provide him with the help he needed.
Many of Rob’s former label mates like Carl Thomas, Kima von Total, Case and many others have offered their condolences following the news of Rob’s death.
We offer our deepest condolences to the loved ones of Black Rob.
