Former Bad Boy Rapper Black Rob Reveals He’s Homeless, Go Fund Me Set Up



Fans are sending love, prayers and money to help former Bad Boy records artist Black Rob.

Following the death of DMX a video of the ‘Woah’ rapper looking frail in a hospital bed went viral. In the post Rob, real name Robert Ross, spoke about the passing of X and also shared that he had fallen ill and had been hospitalized.

“I don’t know, the pain is crazy, man. It’s helping me out though, it’s making me realize I got a lot to go,” he said. “I feel everything about X. X was positive. Love to X.”

The following day on Saturday (April 10) he took to Instagram to reveal that he’d been discharged and thanked his fans for their prayers. In another post the emcee gave a more detailed account of his health troubles and ultimately let fans know that he is currently homeless.

“Oh man, I’ve been dealing with this for five years. Four strokes … I don’t know what to tell you man. Shit is crazy. The shit is hard,” he said. “I don’t got no house to live in — except maybe an apartment. Me and my man be trying to get together. I’m telling you man, this shit is strange. It’s hard, you know what I’m saying?”

DJ Mike Zombie created a GoFundMe to raise money to help him.

“This Gofundme is to help him find a home, pay for medical help & stability during these trying times,” the description read. “We’ve lost a lot legends and we can’t afford to lose anymore. This is my way to try and help.”

As of Monday over $17,000 has been raised with a goal of $50,000.

Styles P, whose group The Lox was also signed to Bad Boy, took to Instagram and said he believes rappers need a union to help prevent things like this from happening.
