Jasiel Amon Robinson, commonly known as Yung Joc, is an American rapper who first rose to prominence after featuring on T-Pain’s #1 hit “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’).”
Not much is available online about Yung Joc’s early life and upbringing. His father, Stanley Tucker, owned a company for hair-care products, which ultimately helped Yung Joc to get a gig writing a jingle for Revlon.
Not too long after, Yung Joc launched his label, “Mastermind.”
In 2005, Robinson connected with Atlanta producer Nitti Beatz and the two created the hit song "It's Goin Down." He then teamed up with Russell "Block" Spencer, the founder of Block Enterprises, who signed him to Sean Combs's Bad Boy South for a significant multi-million deal.
That same year, Bad Boy released Robinson's debut album, "New Joc City." He was also featured on Danity Kane's "Show Stopper" and Cassie's "Call U Out."
In 2006, Robinson was listed as one of Forbes' wealthiest rappers, earning an estimated $10 million and ranking 20th on the list. "It's Goin Down" hit number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart.
The next single, "I Know U See It," also performed well, reaching number 17 on the Hot 100 and 2 on the Hot Rap Tracks.
In 2007, Robinson released his next album, "Hustlenomics," which included the hit singles "Coffee Shop" (featuring The-Dream and Gorilla Zoe) and "Bottle Poppin'" (featuring Gorilla Zoe). The album sold 69,000 copies in its first week and debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. According to Nielsen Soundscan, it had sold around 197,000 copies as of April 2009.
That same year, Robinson was featured on the song "Lookin Boy" by his protégés and label signees, Hotstylz. In 2008, he was featured on hit songs such as "Get Like Me" by David Banner, "So Fly" by Slim, and "Beep" by Bobby V. The following year, he was featured on Day26's single "Imma Put It on Her."
In August of 2009, Yung Joc released a free mixtape called "Grind Flu" on his label, Swagg Team Entertainment.
In 2010, Yung released "Yeah Boy," the first single from his album "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood," along with its music video. In 2012, the RCA Music Group announced the disbanding of J Records, Arista Records, and Jive Records.
As a result, Robinson and other artists previously signed to these labels would release their future music under the RCA Records brand.
In 2014, Robinson released his first official single, "I Got Bitches" from his third album. On September 11th of the same year, he released his second single, "Features," featuring T-Pain, a former collaborator, and singer.
