Five questions with Yung Joc, hip-hop's fun-lover

Last summer, folks couldn’t get enough of Atlanta’s Yung Joc. He brought fun back to hip-hop, ridding his music of the bang-bang-shoot-‘em-up vibe so associated with high-selling commercial hip-hop.

He’s back now with “Hustlenomics,” a new album due later this month, and he’s hoping to once again connect with a dance floor-loving audience. Joc is in town Thursday as part of the Screamfest 07 at Joe Louis Arena. We chatted about his new music, his old music and how he says he’s going to outdo headliners Ciara and T.I.

Many many late-teenagers do just that, and they often greet us at bars, restaurants, and just about every other place that has absolutely nothing to do with their passion. While the concept of “making it” always delivers overwhelming doubt, there are isolated moments in time where someone actually has that intangible something. One such instance is the story of Bad Boy/Next Selection recording artist, Cassie.

For the class of '06, the flyest prom ever

Assistant principal Alonzo Randall is pacing in the foyer, obsessively glancing at his cellphone, waiting for… well, he’s not supposed to say. Randall is keeping a prom night secret from the senior class of Eastern High. “I’ve been keeping this to myself for three weeks,” the brawny administrator says as students from the Northeast Washington school parade past him, an oblivious blur of body glitter, silk, spangles and loose-fitting suits.

It’s Friday night at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, a hub of prom season activity, and the scene resembles something out of a rap video: the stretch SUVs on the circular driveway, the girls flashing skin, the guys wearing their stylish sunglasses at night, doing their best to look as if they’ve been outfitted by Yves St. Laurent and accessorized by Jacob the Jeweler.

Yung Joc interviewed by AHH

Yung Joc After signing Outkast nearly twelve years ago, Antonio “L.A.” Reid predicted that Atlanta would become the Motown of the South. It seemed like a bold prediction considering that Jermaine Dupri was the only person moving big Soundscan units at the time. No one doubts that prediction now, as artists like Outkast, Ludacris, Lil' Jon and T.I. dominate the charts. While the ATL has given us Snap, Trap, Crunk Music and everything in between, newcomer Yung Joc is determined to play the role of Barry Gordy in the new Motown.

Mic Check: Young Joc Interview

The millennium hip-hop world is all about the pride, the culture, and the experience of the South.

These artists flip a mellifluous vernacular and drawl when articulating some of the most colorful stories about growing up in southern ghettos – be they city or rural. No matter how edgy or boastful some of these tales might be, most of the time they are necessary for redefining and broadening the musical landscape.
