The Hip Hop community has suffered another monumental loss.

According to reports gathered by, former Bad Boy Records artist Black Rob passed away on Saturday (April 17) in an Atlanta hospital.

The Whoa! rapper suffered a series of strokes beginning in 2015 and was hospitalized earlier this month but no official cause of death has been revealed.

Last week, a video surfaced of Rob in a hospital bed that caught many fans off-guard considering that we hadn’t heard from or seen him for quite some time. While there, he shared his condolences to DMX.

“I feel everything about X,” he said in the clip that DJ Self posted. “X was positive. Love to X.”

In the days that came afterwards, Rob would reveal that he was also homeless and battling health issues including kidney failure, which DJ Self confirmed. “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 admitted. “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?”
