Yung Joc Arrested In Airport On Gun Charges

Atlanta-based rapper Yung Joc was arrested this morning (Dec 24) for carrying a loaded handgun while attempting to go through a security checkpoint at Cleveland, Ohio’s Hopkins International Airport, according local news outlet NewsNet5. Authorities claim they found a semiautomatic weapon in Joc’s carry-on luggage after which he was arrested, brought to the Cuyahoga County Jail and charged with carrying a concealed weapon. In addition to the state charge, the 27-year-old rapper could face federal charges under the Air Piracy Act.

Joc was released later today on $50,000 bond, but he is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday. His lawyer claims that the rapper maintains his innocence. Joc’s sophomore album Hustlenomics was released in August on Block Entertainment/Bad Boy South.

        I agree, it’s either a pub stunt, or these dudes was juss high and either forgot, or coulda even been a dumb bet gone bad. He wasn’t set up though, he ain’t even on the hip-hop police’s radar yet, sorry to disappoint his fans! He’s garbage.

  • RAP IS CRAP

    At what point do we admit the Rap Industry is completely crime related?

    • Fire

      At what point do we realize that this doesn’t represent all rap and at what point do we realize that generalizations and blanket statements are wrong? Granted, people who do these kinds of things are stupid, but people dumb enough to judge many by the actions of a few are stupid as well.

  • Rockcity

    These rap niggas have no sense what so ever, N y would they wanna set his lame ass up??????

  • Rodjilius

    isnt this the same nigga who tried to teach us how to hustle heh another episode when hustlenomics goes wrong

    joc is weak as hell n e ways

  • bigger

    if this is really true… loaded/unloaded/gun/semiautomatic weapon… if this is really true they need to take his dumb-ass and tie him up to the back of an airplane and proceed down the runway.

  • white widow maker

    he was gonna use it to kill himself for wearing that silly ass chain

  • niggafrommemphis

    How you niggas think he got set up?Yall just as stupid as Joc and by the way,your album ain’t sellin no mo mayne,so what ever press you get from this,I hope it helps you but somehow I doubt it.

  • THAT DUDE

    He had to be high on some next shit if he did it?
    Anyone who think’s JOC can’t get set up in America is the real ass here!
    Black men get framed who aren’t in the spotlight & JOC is famous to these pale-skin’s.Tom Cruise & the whole world was doing that damn motor-cycle dance so to them that’s a high profile arrest.
    That fool who said rap is crime related is obviously a racist & ignorant.Since the music industry began it has been ran by white criminals.Mobster’s would control the artist and gun’s were everywhere.They started companie’s with dirty money and would make Suge Knight look nice!!
    (One mob cracker pulled heat out on Louis Armstrong & he split to europe instead of performing for him)
