Yung Joc learned from his father the important messages of running and manhandling a
business as well as establishing a credible name on the streets. Owner of a hair-care
products company, he gave Yung Joc his first break, writing a jingle for the Revlon
company. As a teenager, Joc pressed on through high school all the while searching for
his own unexampled voice apart from the already established hip hop movements
taking center stage in Atlanta. He formed his own company, Mastermind in order to
breathe his own unique voice into the musical symbolism of Atlanta!s southern-minded
hoods. In early 2006, Joc met Russell “Block” Spencer, and the hit single,”It!s Goin!
Down” was picked up and released by Block Entertainment clearly putting the "hood
genius! on the path of grinding toward becoming today!s Yung Joc with an international
fan base. In addition to the success of New Joc City, which sold more than one million
copies and exploded as #1 on Billboard’s "Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums" and "Top Rap
Albums" charts, Joc also was listed in Forbes Magazine as one of the country!s highest
earning rappers. Mr. Robinson!s Neighborhood is Yung Joc!s third turn to epitomize his
experience as an Atlanta native with a hustler!s heart.
In addition to Yung Joc!s planned nationwide celebrity vs. youth challenges and “block
party” style barbecues, he has also contributed tremendously to his Atlanta hometown
hosting various community appearances including a mini-tour of several Atlanta area
schools giving speeches to encourage Atlanta youth to follow their dreams and
ambitions. To benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, Yung Joc attended the Ed
Hardy!s “Fashion for a Cause 08” evening of fashion and entertainment. In August of
2008 Yung Joc had the pleasure of being an honorary host at the mayor of Atlanta!s
Democratic National Convention Send-Off celebration.
