Black Rob’s manager lets us know exactly how he feels about Diddy offering to pay for his former client’s funeral arrangements.
Diddy has a controversial relationship with the artists who have helped build his Bad Boy empire. Fans instantly began dragging the mogul who is living a luxurious, wealthy life while many of the artists who contributed to his infamous record label are struggling financially.
The Hip Hop community is an ongoing state of grief after losing Black Rob shortly after DMX was called home.
Diddy offered to cover the funeral arrangements but the “Woah!” rapper’s manager, Kal Dawson, is underwhelmed by the gesture.
“Through somebody else that was affiliated with Rob, Diddy reached out and was gonna do something for Rob, this is when the video first went up when he was in the hospital,” Black Rob’s manager said confirming the reports that Diddy did reach out to his former artist. “People dragging their feet and nothing got done. So now you gonna pay for his funeral, he dead and gone now! Everybody wanna do something for you when you are dead and gone!”
Dawson added that he was the one who recorded the now-viral video of Black Rob in the hospital sending condolences to late Ruff Ryders rapper, and blasted those who ignored his pleas.
“I did that I was there with him. A lot of people that could’ve helped didn’t help. That’s why I put the video up to show’em that everybody wanna keep shit hush-hush, but he is not getting no help,” he said. “You can’t tell people what to do with their money, but a lot of people that were in position to help but they didn’t and it was too late because he passed away Saturday, a week after DMX.”
Dawson also took to Instagram to dispel some rumors about Rob’s hospitalization.
“This is the reason why Black Rob ended up being in Atlanta since March 5th he was booked for all star weekend in Atlanta never went back to NYC,” he wrote. “alot of lies are being told but the truth is coming out i was his manager it’s a fact people are doing interviews about Black Rob to rolling stone magazine and it is not acute at all.”
