Rob broke through with his own hit, “Whoa!” in 2000, which made its way onto several music charts, including the Billboard Hot 100. He went on to put out several albums, even after leaving Bad Boy in the mid-2000s, but was reunited with his crew in 2016 when Diddy put together the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour.
