Black Rob Airs Out His Feelings About Diddy And Bad Boy Records
In a recent article on hiphopdx.com Black Rob explained his problem with his former label during an interview, stating that he deserves better than having to take a backseat to Rick Ross, Red Cafe and Nicki Minaj. According to reports, Harlem emcee Black Rob said that he will deliver his third album later this year on Duck Down Records - a respected independent record label. Despite the new situation, Black Rob remains frustrated about his 10 plus years tenure with Diddy and Bad Boy Records. In an interview posted online yesterday, Rob explained that after facing personal challenges, his longtime label "left him for dead." Rob stated, "Once I caught my bid - or whatever the case may be, [Bad Boy Records] was like [expletive] you.' We're gonna use Black Rob as a springboard for this Notorious B.I.G. project - which flopped by the way." B.R. goes on to say that the album was released six months after Rob's sophomore, The Black Report. But it wasn't Biggie's fault, it was just a point where they said '[Expletive] The Black Rob Report...Bad Boy left me for dead." Black Rob maintains that while he was serving time for a larceny conviction, it was the lack of courtesy on the label's part that hurt him the most. "It wasn't like I needed money or anything from anybody. I had money - still got money. It wasn't a money thing." Rob said, "They did nothing to keep my name alive. They took me off their website, just left me for dead." Black Rob's third album, Game Tested & Street Approved, is planned for release this year.
