Former Bad Boy artist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Black Rob[/lastfm] is home from prison after years of being away and ready to get back into the hip hop game with full force. He has been in the studio with a new vibe and work effort unlike when he was with Bad Boy.
According to XXLMag.com who caught up with Balck Rob:
Rob signed with Bad Boy Records in the late 90’s, adding his name to an impressive roster that included [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ma$e[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Lox[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Puff Daddy[/lastfm]. After the tragic death of the label’s signature star, the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Notorious B.I.G.,[/lastfm] Rob and the rest of Bad Boy kept the label alive with a slew of hit records including Big Rob’s smash “Woah.”
After BR’s debut album, Life Story, dropped in 2000, the spitter became sidetracked with legal problems which landed him a five-year sentence for a 2004 grand larceny charge.
Having been home for year now and off parole, the Bad Boy is ready to get back in the studio and record his junior effort, Game Tested, Street Approved, which drops on July 26 through Duck Down.

Welcome Back Black Rob! This is one artist who I can say made real good music and I hope he continues to do so in this venture with Duck Down Records.
