Black Rob “Still Reppin’ The [Bad Boy] Flag” Behind Bars
XXLmag.com recently caught up with incarcerated rapper Black Rob to find out if he is still signed with Bad Boy Records and when he expects to get out of jail.
Rob (born Robert Ross) was arrested in 2004 for burglary and criminal possession after he was caught on tape stealing a pocketbook from a hotel room. According to the New York Post, the bag contained over $6,000 worth of jewelry and cash and the Harlem bred MC was sentenced to two to six years in ‘06 for the charges.
While he’s been serving time, Rob says he has not been in communication with his label, but until he gets the call he’s still with Diddy. “I haven’t heard from these dudes, they might’ve took me off the Bad Boy website or whatever but I haven’t heard from anyone telling me what the deal is. So until I get a piece of paper saying that I’m no longer a Bad Boy artist, I’m still reppin’ that flag. I’m a team player man.”
And fans may be hearing from Rob soon. BR has been using his time to write constantly and believes he may be released shortly. “Right now I’m looking at like 90 Days before I touch the streets,” he said.
As of press time, there has been no official release date. – Elan Mancini with additional reporting by Rob Markman
