After his classic CD with Bad Boy, Life Story, Black Rob has been missing from the game. Yeah he dropped his 2005 album The Black Rob Report, it just wasn’t the same. And yeah he was in jail from 2006 to 2010 but we have not seen that same 2000 Life Story Black Rob that we dig. Well, good news folks, it has been reported that Black Rob is now a member of Duck Down Music. Black Rob has a new album coming out in 2011 titled Game Tested and Street Approved.
Black Rob explains the LP is a “testimony of what I stand for and how I feel. The people have been asking for true hip hop music, and that’s what I’m giving them. I stayed away from features. I’ve been away for 4 joints, so I feel the people deserve to hear me. When I came home, I went right to work, and didn’t have time to reach out to cats. On my next project you will get that. As for producers, I have some up-and-coming cats on there. I believe in giving cats a chance. As far as named producers you may hear a joint or two from Buckwild, Self Service, Bishop, Scram Jones and Pete Rock.”
On his decision to work with Duck Down Music, Black Rob reveals that he “always respected their movement and also been a fan of their music. If I’m going independent why not go with a team I respect, and they have always had a true family setting & environment.”
I wonder if Black Rob will show up tonight at The Duck Down 15th Year Anniversary tonight in Atlanta. I’m sure the fans would appreciate a guest appearance from dude.
