Lil' Rob Quotes
Neighborhood pride. We drink on our driveway, typical things we do, it stays in our music. I don't change my slang, the way that I talk is the way that I talk.

I mean, back in the days, my brother used to DJ, back when Krush Groove came out. Breakdancing, I was in third grade, they called me Lil Rob. I was performing, I would go to the other elementary schools and breakdance with the older guys. Hip Hop was always there, my brother was DJing parties, blend some of the music together, learned how to blend, scratching and stuff.
