Favorite Quotes from Yung Joc

“It’s emotion. When you are watching a movie, you see a woman sitting with her daughter and looking in her eyes and you see butterflies flying in the background and then you suddenly hear scary movie music and it changes the whole thing. But if something sounds different it changes the movie. Music is the backdrop of what you talk about.”

“By the time ‘It’s Going Down’ had took off I was on like two, three tours at one time. Going to a city and you do a daytime show for some kids and these people pay you 20, 25,000. And then at night you do the arena for the adults…And you talking about you look up and I’m getting 30,000. It’s like 50,000 in one day. You do the math. It really wasn’t hard.”

Tips for success from Yung Joc

  1. “See, because I played behind the scenes so much, I already knew what to expect. So, I started getting myself ready. I was creating work for myself to do. People were telling me to take a rest and saying “damn, you already acting like you going on MTV or something.” In my mind, I was because I knew it was what I’d have to do in the near future.”
  2. “Every day I wake up I’m fulfilling my dream. Every day my manager calls I’m fulfilling my dream. I know if my manager doesn’t call, I’m not making money so when he does call, I know I’m making money.”
  3. “But just as fast as the money was coming, the money was going because you still had to promote yourself. I feel like that’s why I was successful the way I was. I ate a very long time. I’m still eating. I get publishing checks monthly, quarterly. Do you know what I’m saying? So, it wasn’t hard.”
