Black Rob, the unforgettable Bad Boy artist, has died on April 17th at the age of 52. Black Rob was dealing with a slew of health issues and passed away suffering from kidney failure.
If you grew up watching BET's 106 & Park and Rap City: The Basement like I did, then you are very fond of Black Rob and his quick success with Bad Boy Entertainment in the early 2000's. His debut album "Life Story" sold certified platinum. "Whoa!" the hit single was an instant rap-along which went on an absolute tear. Although his stardom dwindled, Black Rob continued to release high quality rap music. A personal favorite of mine being 2005's The Black Rob Report.
May this great Harlem MC's soul now rest in peace. Black Rob: Bad Boy For Life!
