Black Rob Speaks On New LP, Denies Beef With Bad Boy
The Harlem, New York rapper gives an update on his upcoming Duck Down release while looking towards the past.
Black Rob rode the Bad Boy Records wave into the early ‘00s alongside Diddy, The Lox and more. Years after dropping his 2000 debut Life Story, the “Whoa!” rapper is finally set to release his third album Game Tested, Street Approved on July 26th, revealing that the LP will include references to his falling out with his former label.
“I dib and dab in the Bad Boy subject but I’m not pin-pointing anyone,” he told XXLMag.com. “If the shoe fits wear it. I’m not trying to cause a war ’cause it’s not even worth it. I feel like at the end of the day, I’ma be BR regardless of Puffy and Duck Down.”
Netting contributions from Buckwild, Joell Ortiz, Pete Rock, Erick Sermon and more, BR claims that he never beefed with Bad Boy, but that it was rather a misunderstanding. “[If] they want it to be a beef, that’s for the critics to say. People that know Puff, know me. It’s never gonna be no beef cause we grown men and it would come to a head. I had to clear the air,” he continued.
He also spoke on releasing the album on indie label Duck Down Records and his future plans. “We are probably going back to the majors more than likely. If not I’ll put my own shit out,” he added. “Shout to my man G-Dep. People be counting him out but all jokes aside, if my man come it’s a problem. A lot of dudes are in trouble.”
