The Popdust Files: 00s one-hit wonders, black rob

#31 Black Rob, “Whoa!” (2000)

What It Was: Surely the song on this list that says its title the most times in the lyrics, just about everything was “Whoa!” in 2000 hip-hop, thanks to Black Rob’s bombastic debut single, its hypnotic string riff and its monosyllabic catchphrase.

What Happened Next: Diddy was nice enough to invite Rob on a couple hits of his (“Bad Boy For Life,” G. Dep’s “Let’s Get It“), but “Whoa!” is a tough sort of single to follow up. Rob barely even tried, releasing only two further singles before being sentenced to seven years in prison after failing to show up to his hearing for grand larceny charges in 2006.

Where Are They Now?: Rob was made a free man in 2010, and last year released his third album, Game Tested, Streets Approved. The LP failed to hit the Billboard 200.
