Yung Joc is finally off of Bad Boy

9 Nov

Yung JocYung Joc’s wish has finally come true, he is no longer signed to Block Ent./Bad Boy South. During the summer, Joc expressed his interest in leaving the label. In order to be released, Joc released a free album to the public. Given the history of Sean “Diddy” Combs as an executive, it was highly unlikely that Yung Joc would get off of Bad Boy.

However, the Atlanta rapper got lucky. Combs, always being one step ahead of himself, he signed a new distribution deal with Interscope Records. In the deal, the current roster of Bad Boy Records will stay under Atlantic Records, but all new signees will be under Interscope Records. When current Bad Boy artists go to re-sign with the label, they will move from Atlantic to Interscope.

He has not come out to say this, but Diddy is ready to end the deal with Atlantic Records as soon as possible. Yung Joc has been the biggest star on Bad Boy for some time, but he is a part of the Atlantic deal. While it may hurt to simply release him, it makes sense so that Diddy can go ahead and end the deal with Atlantic Records.

Due to his eagerness to move on with his label, Sean Combs granted Yung Joc his release from Block Entertainment, Bad Boy South, and Bad Boy Records.
