Yung Joc is delivering an album with both Chris Brown and Bobby V featured but, surprisingly without his record label’s assistance. According to the “It’s Goin’ Down” rapper, the album “Grind FLU” is being released “his way,” despite legal and behind the scenes woes. “Fans all over the world have been eagerly waiting for me to release a new album and I felt the time was right at this very moment to release GRIND FLU for free, gift it to my fans and do things my way,” says Joc. Earlier this year, Yung Joc told Billboard that he had not been paid and was going to sue Bad Boy and Block Entertainment, parties he seemingly attributed to holding up his next album. “I haven’t been paid any royalties since I’ve been out, after over a million albums sold,” said Yung Joc. “For my first album, they gave me a $25,000 advance when I was supposed to get more…Then I had a million dollar budget for my second album, never even got an advance off of it. For the third one they hit me with another $25,000, like I’m some chump in this sh*t. And I just got tired of it.” Featuring Bobby V (Valentino), Montana Da Mack, Chris Brown, and Pleasure P, “Grind Flu” will arrive via free download Tuesday, August 11. However, the album will only be made available through Yung Joc’s official website swaggteament.com. “Grind Flu” is the first album to be released from the rapper since 2007s “Hustlenomics”. Yung Joc is also the successful CEO OF Swagg Team Entertainment, whose signees include HotSTylz and the GS Boyz (“Stanky Legg”). Joc also appeared on Bobby V’s top 10 charting 2009 single “Beep” and Slim’s late 2008 single “So Fly”.
