Yung Joc Was Inspired by 2 Chainz’ Comeback Story


In 2006, Yung Joc had an undisputed run off his two popular singles “It’s Going Down” and “I Know U See It” from his debut New Jock City. The songs not only proved Joc was a force in Atlanta, but laid the blueprint for other upstarts to follow in his footsteps. 2007’s Hustlenomics was fairly successful as well, giving the proper ammunition for Joc to become one of the marquee artists out of the ATL. Now, after a seven-year music industry hiatus due to personal and business setbacks, the 31-year-old rapper is ready to make his presence felt once again. Although it’s been a while since we’ve heard from Joc, his new single “I Got Bitches” is an indication that he’s never left the game. Just hours before premiering the song on 106 & Park, Joc stopped by the XXL offices to share the stories behind his infectious singles. Each served as an important career marker, and Joc had plenty to say about every one of them. Salute the hustle.—Eric Diep
