Mike Zombie took up himself to try and get Rob the help he needs by creating a GoFundMe page to help the rapper get back on his feet. The rapper, who is best known for his 2000 single “Whoa,” has said in the past that he suffers high blood pressure. In 2015, the 52-year-old explained his situation while being interviewed on Sway In The Morning.

“It ain’t no drugs. Lately, I had high blood pressure. Being that I have that, that takes a lot out of a brother. Going on tour, you don’t even know. This is a real serious… I had a stroke. Yea, I had a stroke… and ummm, I got over that. It’s been high blood pressure and trying to stay on top of this thing,” he said at that time.
