Who is Jasiel Amon Robinson? The rap world knows him as Young Joc.

Yung Joc despite the rumors, he is not related to rapper Young Jeezy.Yung Joc is on 2006 "Forbes' Richest Rappers List", ranking at #20, with a gross worth $10 million.

Joc was Born September 20, 1980 in Atlanta, Georgia. Robinson's father ran a hair-care products company and helped him write a jingle for Revlon; Robinson founded his own label to release his music.[1]

Teaming with producer Russell "Block" Spencer, founder of the Block Enterprises label, Yung Joc recorded club track "It's Goin' Down" in the summer of 2006. Spencer signed Joc to Sean Combs's Bad Boy Records for a multi-million dollar deal, and Bad Boy released Joc's debut New Joc City that year.[1] Yung Joc was also featured on the songs "Show Stopper" by Danity Kane (from Diddy's Making The Band 4) & Cassie's album track Call U Out. Yung Joc is on 2006 "Forbes' Richest Rappers List", ranking at #20, having grossed approximately $10 million in 2006.[2] "It's Goin' Down" reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart.

Joc's next album, Hustlenomics, was released in 2007, with the singles "Coffee Shop" and "Bottle Poppin'".

Yung Joc released his third studio album Grind Flu for free on Swagg Team Entertainment under Jive Records on August 11, 2009.[3][4]

Business deals

Joc has been said to have a new record label through Jive Records, called Swagg Team Entertainment. The label was formed after a widely-publicized lawsuit with Block Entertainment and Bad Boy Records. Joc spoke about the lawsuit and his relationship with Diddy in a recent interview [5].

Swagg Team Entertainment will see the debut from Chicago rap group Hotstylz; their first single will be "Lookin Boy".[6] It also saw the debut from Dallas rap group GS Boyz; their first single being "Stanky Legg."

Also, recently he collaborated with popular Nigerian artist, Eldee for the remix for his single, Big Boy. The song is on the Nigerian sharing website, Sturvs.

In 2008, Yung Joc appeared at the Exodus tour event. At the event Yung Joc gave his testimony about being a Christian. He went on to say, "I'm not trying to be a preacher, but God is real in my life."
