Former Bad Boy Records artist Black Rob recently talked about taking on the music industry in 2011 and his aim to hop on a record alongside G-Unit’s 50 Cent.
Asked what artist and producer he most wants to work with, Rob looked no further than Interscope’s top artists.
“I don’t really like to put names out there like that, but I will say this, I think the people would love to hear 50 and myself on a Dr. Dre track,” Rob said in an interview. “I’m much mature and smarter now and just running with a different engine now. Duck Down. Then when you hear the things I’m saying on this project you will see. Make sure you get that. I also want to add this, let’s show them that good music still does exist. The only way to show them is by supporting good music people. Buy the album and don’t bootleg. That’s why rock, country, and other genre be winning because their fans purchase their music!” (VIBE)
Rob’s shot at 50 may be good since the G-Unit leader announced his withdrawal from making a new album and only focusing on working with artists this week.
“Man I’m not releasing a album i can’t believe interscope is this f*cked up right now. I apologize to all my fans.,” he tweeted July 27th.
“I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album. They dropped the ball with me one time to many.” (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Rob recently talked to SOHH about coming home after nearly five years behind bars.
“I don’t know ’bout nobody else, but when you do four years in prison, you come home with a different mindset. I don’t give a f**k who you [are], whether it’s to come out here to rob n*ggas and do the same sh*t you was doing, or it’s to get your life together and do something positive. I felt like I needed to come out here and do something positive. Soon as my first and second album came out, where was I at? Jail. How the f*ck you got an album out and you in jail?!” (SOHH Singled Out)
He also talked to SOHH this week about why fans should support his new album, Game Tested, Streets Approved.
“I’m gonna win an award with this. The reason why I’m going to say it’s a hip-hop classic is because for a motherf*cker to come home four years from the pen and put this music down the way I’m doing it, come on doggy, it’s gonna be a classic! Like I said, it all boils down to it being a classic. Now the four things I said prior to this, put them together and it equals the Top 5. So everything leading up to this reason, combined, makes it a classic.” (SOHH Buy My Record)
