How did Yung Joc Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on April 2, 1983, in Atlanta, Georgia, Yung Joc’s (Real Name: Jasiel Amon Robinson) original aspiration was to pursue basketball- unfortunately for him however, his parents did not support his dreams of playing on the court. Growing up, his father Stanley Tucker owned a hair-care products company. Pulling a few strings from behind, he helped him land an opportunity to write a song for Revlon as a teen.
Ultimately, it was during his early twenties that he first began to explore a music career. In the spring of 2005, Yung Joc was introduced to Nitti Beats, a local Atlanta producer; together, the two eventually recorded, It’s Goin Down– a song that would later become his breakout hit.
Later released as an official single in April 2006, It’s Goin’ Down quickly proved to be a major success. Upon hitting stores, it peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B, number 1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks, and number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. His second most successful track to date, it has since gone platinum three times in the United States.
But that’s not all- the song also garnered numerous accolades including a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Song in 2007. On top of that, it also landed a feature on Rolling Stone’s list of “100 Best Songs of the Year.” Since then, a handful of remixes have been released including those that feature Jody Breeze, Rick Ross, Slim Thug, and Lil Wayne.
Riding on the momentum that he had, Yung Joc later released his second single, I Know You See It in July 2016. Composed by the rapper himself, it peaked as high as number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at number 5 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs shortly upon its release. On Youtube, accompanying visuals also made its way to the site; as of 2017, the MV has been viewed over 1.4 million times.
Prior to the end of 2006, he came out with another single titled, 1st Time. Taken from his debut album, it featured a couple of guest appearances from Marques Houston and Trey Songs. Based on a woman’s first sexual experience, the song consisted entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 93, from which it eventually climbed up to number 82. Later on, it also charted on the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks and Hot R&B Songs charts at number 11 and 15 respectively.

Despite lukewarm reviews, the project has since sold over 500,000 copies in the US, earning it gold accreditation from the RIAA.
