Yung Joc Drops Diddy For Polo, RCA Deal

Yung Joc’s relationship with Bad Boy Records has officially come to an end with the “It’s Goin’ Down” rapper set to release future recordings through Polo Grounds/RCA. In a statement released Thursday, May 6, Polo Grounds Music President, Bryan Leach, confirmed Joc’s recent signing with the label, also home to Pitbull and Yo Gotti. “Joc is a triple threat. As an artist, executive and personality, he is now entering a higher phase of his career and I’m happy to play a part in it,” said Bryan Leach, President, Polo Grounds Music. “I feel with Pitbull, Yo Gotti and now Yung Joc, Polo Grounds has an amazing front line of smart, talented, hungry artists that will continue to show why it’s still all about making hit records and outworking everyone else.” Following Leach, Joc released a statement, at one point addressing an ongoing issue with former managment and label executives he accused of holding his career and money back. “It is my pleasure and honor to announce my affiliation and new partnership with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Music Group and Battery/Jive Records,” said Yung Joc. “Now I can actually work and not wonder if I’m going to be held back from building my own brand as well as the Swagg Team brand. I’m very excited to work with this team.” Yung Joc released his debut album, “New Joc City,” in 2006. It spawned the hit singles “It’s Goin’ Down” and “I Know You See It”.
