Tributes continue to pour in for former Bad Boy Records artist Black Rob. The 51-year-old “Whoa!” rapper passed away at an Atlanta hospital on Saturday (April 17) shortly after he was discharged from another medical facility.
While LL COOL J, Pharoahe Monch, Westside Gunn and a roster of other artists have offered their condolences, people were wondering what Bad Boy founder Diddy had to say about Black Rob’s death.
As people learned of Black Rob’s precarious health condition, many were quick to point the finger at Diddy as if he somehow led to his early demise. But according to fellow Bad Boy alum Mark Curry, the Hip Hop mogul had already reached out to Rob prior to his death. On Sunday (April 18), Diddy shared an Instagram posted dedicated to Black Rob and praised him for his contribution to the culture.
“Rest in power King @therealblackrob!” he captioned a throwback photo of the pair. “As I listen to your records today there’s one thing that they all have in common! You have made millions of people all over the world feel good and dance! You are one of a kind! GOD BLESS! Love. You will be truly missed!!!”
