Not only did Joc receive a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Song in 2007 for “It’s Goin Down,” but Joc’s 2006 debut album “New Joc City” reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts. The entrepreneur also went on to release another album, "Hustlenomics," which also performed well on the charts.
Yung Joc was arrested for child abandonment in Gwinnett County, Ga.
The Shade Room reports that Joc was initially pulled over on Thursday, May 5, 2022, in Gwinnett County, Ga., where officers discovered that the rapper was driving with a suspended license due to an outstanding warrant linked to “abandonment of a dependent child.”
Joc was taken into custody and later released. Even though the rapper first decided to remain silent about his arrest, he spoke out on his Monday, May 9, 2022, Streetz Morning Takeover for Streetz on 94.5 FM.
The rapper shared that he paid a $1,300 bond and was released after being in custody for a few hours. As for the child abandonment charges, Joc claims that it all stems from issues with child support.
Joc claimed that he was paying his unnamed child’s mother a sum between $4,000 and $5,000 a month. However, the rapper decided to focus on other expenses — his wedding to Kendra Robinson in November 2021 — as opposed to child support, which made his child’s mother upset.
“That person got mad,” Yung Joc said via the outlet. “That mother got mad. And felt like no, you are supposed to keep paying me this.”
There hadn't been an official child support contract, so Joc suggested that they create one with the help of his lawyers. By the end of 2021, Joc and his child’s mother were still negotiating, so the reality star offered her $1,500 for Christmas shopping.
The child’s mother wasn’t pleased, so she went ahead and reported the rapper for child abandonment. Joc had no idea about a warrant being out for his arrest.
In case you didn’t know, Joc has eight children from four baby mamas. Hopefully, Joc and his unnamed child’s mother can come to an agreement.
