Jasiel Amon Robinson, who is now known as Yung Joc, was born on September 20, 1983, in Atlanta, Georgia. His father, Stanley Tucker, ran a business that sold hair care products, and he helped Joc get a chance to write a jingle for Revlon. When Yung Joc began to rap, he started his own record label called Mastermind.
Yung Joc Personal Life
Late in 2011, about $70,000 worth of studio equipment from Joc’s Swagg Team studio was stolen. The thieves also stole Yung Joc’s third album’s unreleased songs, which were on a hard drive that they took. Later, it came out that Joc had said that one of the thieves was a man named “Honcho” from Thomaston, Georgia. Yung Joc has a daughter named Ja’Kori and four sons named Amoni, Amir, and Chase. He also has two sets of twins named Cadence and Camora and Eden and Allon. His ex-wife Alexandra, to whom he was married for 13 years, gave birth to three of the children. Joc got engaged to lawyer Kendra Robinson in July 2019. He told “Page Six” that they “want to get engaged and get married right away,” but their wedding plans had to be put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Early in 2020, Yung Joc was filmed while driving for the rideshare company Pull Up N Go. Despite rumors that he was having money problems, Joc said he was doing it because he had worked with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta for many years and wanted to show kids how important it is to make a good living.
In 2009, Joc said he was going to sue Bad Boy Entertainment and Block Entertainment because they hadn’t paid him his royalties “Even though more than a million albums have been sold since I left, I haven’t gotten any royalties. They gave me a $25,000 advance on my first album when I was supposed to get more… Then, I spent a million dollars on my second album, but I didn’t even get an advance. For the third one, they hit me with another $25,000, like I was some chump in this crap. And I was just fed up with it.” Master Mind Music, an Atlanta record label, sued Joc, Bad Boy Entertainment, and Block Entertainment in 2012 for copyright infringement and breach of contract. The label said it owned the rights to all of Yung Joc’s music made since 2005.
