Yung Joc Released From Block Entertainment

Yung Joc is officially free of his contractual obligations with former label Block Entertainment. The Atlanta rapper confirmed the news with “I just got my release and one of the terms of the release was a defamation clause, so honestly, I can’t really talk about it too much,” he said. “I’ve been released, severed the business ties. May God bless them and their regime, but I’m doing my own thing now.“

As for his future plans: “I’m actually in negotiations right now with a few labels,” he shared. “I just choose not to call out the different entities. Things are looking very good, God is very good. When I was going through this whole thing with the Bad Boy/Block situation, I didn’t know what the other side was going to be. I didn’t know if there was going to be light on the other end. I was hopeful, but it’s actually working out for the best. I ain’t mad, nobody’s mad right now, everything is good.”

Joc first revealed his issues with Block and Bad Boy last May to over unpaid advances and royalty payments. He has released two albums for the label, 2006′s New Joc City and 2007′s Hustlenomics. —Max G
