Yung Joc immediately became the subject of ridicule and object of finger pointing after the Atlanta rapper debut his new fried, dyed and laid-to-the-side hairdo on social media yesterday.
Apparently, Joc’s creamy conk is for an upcoming movie role. According to Joc, he knew he was going to get called out for his shocking change and took to Instagram to explain himself.
“BIG Screen flow,” he captioned his explanation video Friday. “I know y’all gonna hit me with all the Shade in the Room and that’s totally fine because I know how Blessed I am…….. Never been scared to be the Center of attention without trying.” The post garnered nearly 25,000 views from his 289,000 followers after being online for six hours.
Inside the black-and-white video he added a little more information. “See, it’s cool to be a follower, I guess,” the rapper mused. “All y’all wanna look alike. But what if I just chose to do something different because I knew yo mother—— a– was gonna talk about it? I won.”
And he was definitely right about that. Social media went all the way in on him. His name was a top-trending Twitter topic this morning.
