Jasiel Amon Robinson aka Yung Joc, is an American rapper. He is best known for his hit single "It's Goin' Down".
Robinson's father, Stanley Tucker, owned a hair-care products company and helped him get an opportunity to write a jingle for Revlon. Robinson followed in his father's entrepreneurial footsteps and founded his own label to release his music.
Yung Joc met Atlanta producer Nitti Beatz and the two recorded the hit "It's Goin Down" in the spring of 2005. After teaming with Russell "Block" Spencer, founder of the Block Enterprises label, Spencer signed Joc to Sean Combs's Bad Boy South for a multimillion-dollar deal, and Bad Boy released Joc's debut New Joc City that year.
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 was on 2006 "Forbes' Richest Rappers List", ranking at #20, having grossed approximately $10 million that year. "It's Goin' Down" reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart. The next single, "I Know U See It", reached #17 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the Hot Rap Tracks.
On March 18, 2014 Joc released his first official single entitled "I Got Bitches" from his upcoming third album. On September 11, 2014 Joc released his second single from his upcoming album entitled "Features" featuring former collaborator & singer T-Pain.
In 2010, Joc formed a new record label through Jive Records, called Swagg Team Entertainment, after a widely publicized lawsuit with Block Entertainment and Bad Boy South. Joc spoke about the lawsuit and his relationship with Diddy in a recent interview.
