YUNG JOC ARRESTED ON CHILD ABANDONMENT CHARGES


Atlanta rapper Yung Joc spent just one hour behind bars on May 5 after he was accused of abandoning his child.

According to jail records obtained by The Shade Room, the “It’s Goin’ Down” rapper was booked into Gwinnett County Jail at 2:58 a.m. and charged with abandoning a dependent child.

The Love & Hip Hop cast member was freed at 3:40 a.m. after posting a $1,300 bond. The Shade Room reached out to the 41-year-old rhymer for comment, but Yung Joc instead used the opportunity to plug his upcoming comedy tour.


“Yeah my new comedy tour is about to launch,” Joc replied. “The Help Me Feed My Kids Tour.” TSR asked if he was doing comedy now, to which Joc replied he’s “been doing comedy.”
