American rapper from Georgia, Jasiel Robinson, better known by his stage name Yung Joc is worth about $10 million.
If Hip-hop is your thing, then it’s improbable you don’t know about Yung Joc hit singles – “It’s Goin’ Down” and “I know You See It”. The former was released sometime in April 2006 as the first single from his debut album – “New Joc City” and, the latter was the second single off the debut album.
While “It’s Goin’ Down” among other great heights it attained, was nominated for the Best Rap Song’s 2007 Grammy awards, “I Know You See It” reached the number 17 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
It is believed that a greater portion of the value of Yung Joc’s wealth was triggered by the reception the two songs got.
Early Life: Career and Songs
Born on 2nd April 1983, in Atlanta, Georgia, Yung Joc was interested in Rap Music after he got his first Run DMC record when he was just 8. He was able to get his own record at that early age after following the steps of his father who was an entrepreneur.
Growing in the age where hip-hop music was gaining popularity, he soon became a hip-hop fanatic and started rapping on his own. Before his breakthrough with music, he performed at several events and clubs around the town. He was eventually spotted by Nitti, an Atlanta producer.
Yung Joc rose to stardom after he released “It’s Goin Down”. The song became an instant hit in 2006 and went on to earn him a Grammy Award nomination. The album saw over 150,000 sales in the first week and, has since been certified gold by RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for selling over 500,000 copies.
Yung Joc’s strong financial standing is a result of his performance as a rapper and his music recordings. He has several contracts and offers signed to his name, one of which includes Bad Boys Record. His first album which the Sean Combs record label produced, sold over a million copies. With an estimated yearly earnings of over $900,000, Yung Joc pocketed $349,650 from the sales of his debut album – “New Joc City”.

The hip-hop artist was named on Forbes’ 2007 list of “Hip-Hop Cash Kings“. Ranked as number 20 on the list, it was specified that Yung Joc’s net worth is $10 million. The rapper once described the Forbes’ ranking as one of the “worst things” that happened to him. “People that I loaned $1,000 felt like I could’ve given them $10 (thousand),” he said.
Yung Joc was jeered at for running out of money on Gucci Mane’s song – “Fuck The World”. Mane rapped a line that said: “I got all eyes on me like Pac did, but I ain’t tryin’ to go broke like Joc did.”
In response to the controversial line, Joc said: “Gucci is a master at getting his name in other people’s mouths. I ain’t trippin’, I know what my financial situation is.”
However, he expressed that Gucci’s diss was a good thing. According to him, it made him a better person. “That was one of the best things that happened to me,” he said. “…It made me a better person, I felt good. When I go out there ain’t nobody looking at me to pay the bill…” Check out everything he said on the video footage below.
