Yung Joc Net Worth $8 Million
Over the given period of time, Yung managed to become famous as well as rich enough with the only source of his income being music. It has been reported that the net worth of the rapper is equal to the sum of $8 million. Joc earned $2.5 million from the deal with Bad Boy South for three albums in 2006. In addition to this, he earned more than $8 million from his performances with $15,000 per show in 2007. He has also received $2 million from the lawsuit he filed against Block Entertainment and Bad Boy South labels for unpaid royalties. On the other hand, his assets include a house at Riverdale, Georgia valued $1.1 million.
Joc’s first involvement in music was the recording of the jingle for a hair care products company, Revlon, which is owned by his father. Later, Yung Joc together with producer Nitti Beatz recorded their first and the most successful single so far, “It’s Goin’ Down” (2006) which topped the USA charts of R&B and Rap and was certified three times platinum. Other singles “I Know You See It” (2006) and “1st Time” (2006) were respectively certified platinum and gold. All three singles as well as other songs were listed in the first studio album “New Joc City” (2006) which has been certified gold. The first album was the most successful one which helped Joc to get introduced into the music industry and earn money as well as fame. The second studio album “Hustlenomics” (2007), also reached the first position in the R&B and Rap charts, although the sales were not very high. Afterwards, Joc released his independent album “The Grind Flu” (2009). Currently, he is working on an upcoming album “Come Times Along” which is going to be released in 2015. It is expected that the net worth of the rapper will increase in the near future.
