Former Bad Boy artist Black Rob has informed fans of his current standing with Diddy since recently being released from incarceration.
According to Rob, he no longer has ties with the rap mogul.
"Nah," Rob said when asked if he still had a relationship with Bad Boy. "If you tell me you love me, you tell me you my man, then I'ma take that, I'ma run with that. You feel me? So when something happens to me and you turn your back on me regardless of the situation, regardless of what we're going through. I don't appreciate that, I don't respect that. Because if you're my man, I'm always gonna be your man unless you flip on me. I was under the assumption I was family. If you follow Black Rob's career, you know I been through a whole bunch. When the album's getting ready to come out, I'm either in jail or somewhere I'm not supposed to be. I'm not blaming Bad Boy, let me set the record straight, I'm not blaming P. Diddy -- I did that, that was me. I have no hatred..." (BET)
Last year, Rob debunked rumors of being dropped from Diddy's label.
"I haven't heard from these dudes, they might've took me off the Bad Boy website or whatever but I haven't heard from anyone telling me what the deal is. So until I get a piece of paper saying that I'm no longer a Bad Boy artist, I'm still reppin' that flag. I'm a team player man." (XXL Mag)
He previously served time behind bars after being arrested in 2004 for theft.
The rapper, whose real name is Robert Ross, was arrested at 11:45 a.m. at the On the Ave Hotel for entering and remaining in a hotel room, and removing jewelry from the room without authority, according to a police spokesperson. Ross's accomplice, Damien Ashmeade, was arrested at 3:50 p.m. (MTV)
Rob's rise to fame came on the heels of his 1999 hit, "Whoa."
