Yung Joc is all he is because of his parents. Growing up, his parents supported him a lot as an aspiring artist. They never said no to him. Infact, it was them who encouraged him to do Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.
According to the star, when he was offered the opportunity to join the cast of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, he wasn’t sure what to do at first. Then, Yung consulted with his parents, and they pushed him to take a leap of faith.
“My dad was like look at it like this: they can only edit what you give ‘em…He said it could be an eye-opener for you in regard to what you want to do in your future,” Yung recalled before adding, “so I talked to pops about it, my moms, my siblings, prayed on it.”

This rapper/comedian has been with the show ever since its third season, where he was introduced as Karlie Redd’s new man. Surprisingly, they break up during the very season as Yung cheated on Karlie with his assistant Khadiyah Lewis.
