Mark had been doing his very best to support Rob, who struggled with failing health and an unstable living situation.

A GoFundMe was just launched last week in an effort to help Rob get back on his feet.

Black Rob revealed in a video posted on social media that he had suffered four strokes and that he was in pain.

TMZ reports he was also battling kidney failure.

My sincerest condolences and prayers to Rob’s family during this difficult time.

May he Rest In Peace.
