He said at the time, “Oh man, I’ve been dealing with this for five years. Four strokes … I don’t know what to tell you, man. 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 — is strange. It’s hard, you know what I’m saying.”
Black Rob was 51 years old.
