Yung Joc

Cornbread fed and breed right in the “A”. Atlanta native Yung Joc is a new comer to the game but has the persona of an established rapper. His new hit single “It’s Going Down” is banging on the airwaves all over Atlanta.

Joc was a troubled child that grew up on the South and the West side of Atlanta. He was passed between family members his entire childhood. Despite his rough early years Joc was a creative child that was very inspired by music. At the age of 10 he wanted to emulate the rappers of the time. He was drawn to the lyrics regarding pain, passion, and determination in songs by the likes of Slick Rick, Dana Dane, Run DMC, Ice-T and others.

Over the years Joc has been apart of several underground rap groups. He has learned that quality is better than quantity. He will work on one song until he feels it is right. Joc intends on setting a new pace in the industry. He wants to revitalize the game not change it.
