Black Westchester caught up Black Rob on Tuesday, May 5th at The Dole Center in Mount Vernon before recording his performances of a Mother’s Day concert for a real brief word to find out what the brother who brought us one of the roughest street anthems, has been up to.
He began associating with the Bad Boy label as early as 1996, appearing on the Bad Boy remix to 112’s “Come See Me”. He was then featured on several Bad Boy releases, including remixes to Total’s “What About Us” (1997) and Faith Evans’s “Love Like This” (1998), the song “24 Hrs. to Live” (1997) from Mase, and albums by Puff Daddy & the Bad Boy Family (1997) and The Notorious B.I.G. (1999). He also made two appearances on Cru’s 1997 album Da Dirty 30, as well as albums by Ol Dirty Bastard, Channel Live, The Madd Rapper, Benzino, Tony Touch, and others. These guest appearances earned him media buzz. Which led up to Black Rob dropping one of the biggest rap street anthems of last decade with 2000’s “Whoa!”
