Who is Rob49 aka Baby Soulja Slim
23-year-old Rob49 was born on March 6, 1999 as Robert Thomas. He works out of New Orleans. The rapper comes from New Orleans’ fourth and ninth wards, so he combined the numbers to form his stage moniker, Rob49. According to Famous Birthdays.com, he is a nursing college dropout who began rapping in April 2020. Rob49 also released three tapes, 4our the World, Vulture, and Crazy Man. In 2020, he will collaborate with Say Cheese founder Shawn Domonique Cotton.
According to the outlet, he is inspired by Meek Mill, The Weeknd, and Future. Because his parents were in and out of jail, the rapper had a shattered upbringing. When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, the entire family relocated to Houston. According to First Avenue, the rapper expressed his passion for rapping, saying, “”I knew I could rap since I used to listen to Future,” Rob explains. “You know how towards the conclusion of the song there’s still a little rhythm left? I was punishing him.”
“Whatever comes out of my mouth comes out of my mouth,” Rob adds, “I know it’s going to be honest and I know it’s going to be hard.” “I’m kind of focusing more on the world than where I’m from,” he continues. “I want everyone to be able to relate.” “I really don’t even want my music blended, ’cause I want you to realize that this is what we’re doing right here,” the rapper explains. “It’s difficult for me to hear my partners in the back smoking weed and talking to girls!” “My music represents my personality.”
