However, the highest donation is $1000 and from Denaun Porter, popularly known as the rapper Mr. Porter. He has close association with big hip-hop industry names such as Eminem, Snoop Dogg, The Game and 50 Cent. 

A lot of fans have called out to Diddy to offer assistance to his former co-rapper. But just last week, Mark Curry revealed that Diddy did reach out.

He revealed in a video, "Puffy, we need your help and you are reaching out." "You're trying to say he's not. He's really trying to help." Curry didn't mention what kind of help their co-rapper gave out. 

Meanwhile, other rappers have been posting tributes to Black Rob.

LL Cool J said, "A story teller. An MC. A gentleman everytime I saw him. Rest in power, my brother."

Now that Black Rob has passed, it was revealed that the GoFundMe donations would be given to his family, as there has been a separate fundraiser for his funeral created by DJ Self for funeral service and other expenses.

It's unclear if Diddy donated to Black Rob's GoFundMe pages because his name wasn't on the list of donors on both fundraisers.

Black Rob's Poor Health

The hip-hop community was notified of Black Rob's poor health after DJ Self posted a video of the rapper in a hospital bed speaking to DMX, who was on life support at that time.

In the video, BR didn't look well who had difficulty opening his eyes and struggling to talk.

In the video, he revealed, "Pain is crazy, man."

"It's helping me out though. It's making me realize I gotta lot to go on. I gotta lot to go on, man. I feel everything about X. X was positive. Love to X."
