Besides holding that position at his family’s label, he also had his own publishing company called Rich Kid Music.

Greg Walker, the family’s spokesperson told the media Robinson died of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Robinson’s brother Joseph Robinson Jr. said, “It’s just shocking to the family. … We’re devastated.”

Our condolences go out to the Robinson family. rest in power Rhondo Robinson.
