Black Rob’s Manager Responds To Diddy Offering To Pay For Late Rapper’s Funeral: Everybody Wanna Do Something For You When You Are Dead & Gone!
Recently-departed rapper Black Rob’s manager, Kal Dawson, has officially responded to Diddy’s reported intent to finance the former Bad Boys Records artist’s funeral service. Black Rob passed away after suffering serious health issues such as kidney failure and multiple strokes.
As previously reported, an insider spoke to Page Six and stated that Diddy wanted to help the rapper be laid to rest. The source claimed:
“He wants to make sure that Rob is laid to rest with dignity and according to his wishes. He is helping to make the funeral arrangements.”
The source also alleged that Diddy “offered help” to Black Rob while he was in the hospital, but “sadly, it was too late.”
Responding to the gesture while on the Murder Master Music Show, Kal Dawson stated the following:
“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.”
“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!”
As you may recall, a video of Black Rob offering his support to DMX began circulating earlier this month, and fans were instantaneously concerned for him on account of his hospitalization and overall heath at the time.

Dawson stated that he was the one who recorded Rob in the video. Explaining his rationale for doing so, he claimed:
“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 s*** hush-hush, but he is not getting no help.”
Dawson has also taken to Instagram to address the situation, captioning a recently-deleted picture with:
“…I have proof people are showing fake love I been around [Rob] since August 2020 these c**k s****rs like Mark [C]urry wasn’t around [until] I put the video up…”
The Instagram post, which went up Thursday evening and was deleted on Friday morning (April 22nd and 23rd, respectively), explicitly addresses Mark Curry, who claimed: “Puffy is really trying to help [Rob]” before he passed away.
