New Joc City [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
As a longtime member of Atlanta's hip-hop community, Yung Joc watched his neighbor Young Jeezy blow up while he waited on the sidelines. Bad Boy South CEO Diddy watched from a different angle since his label was home to Jeezy's first group, Boyz N da Hood, and yet he lost the boy to Def Jam. There's no doubt Jeezy's style and success were major influences on Joc's Bad Boy South debut, New Joc City. Those influences are audible, and the parts of the album that don't sound like Jeezy's breakthrough, Let's Get It, sound a heck a lot like another Atlanta hit, T.I.'s King. Put the Bad Boy polish to the two albums and you're close to New Joc City, although the club tracks here...

Put the Bad Boy polish to the two albums and you're close to New Joc City, although the club tracks here are much more hooky, pleasingly more slick. "It's Goin' Down" with Nitti is the key track, a simple, familiar-sounding bit of Southern weekend music that withstands numerous replays. The rowdy "Do Ya Bad" and "I Know You See It" are more of the same, while "Hear Me Coming" goes in a different direction and borrows G-Unit's attitude and production style. Joc's skills are solid enough in these safe and tested surroundings, but he's less convincing when delivering a swaggering ballad or attempting Jeezy-type storytelling, like on "Dope Boy Magic." He doesn't sound comfortable with all these concessions to what's hot, and the album as a whole suffers from an identity crisis. With plenty of hooks and great beats, it's a solid album for Bad Boy South, but here's hoping Joc brings his own style next time.

    Wackest Rapper next to D4L

    I am not hating, but this CD is terrible. His lyrics are not good and his style is very unoriginal (cross between TI and Young Geezy). I mean I would think he would have at least one decent song on the album, but to no avail. I wish I could give this album a 0 star rating because that is what it deserves.

    Yung joc-ONE HIT WONDER

    The yung joc cd is garbage. All the beats suck and there is no more than 2 songs worth listen to. Just rip the 2 songs of the internet and save your doe. As far as i can see yung joc is another one hit wonder, getting money today and in debt tomorrow. PEACE

    Get Rid of "BadBoy"

    Yung Joc is very talented, the CD was good but could have been better: majority of the beats and lyrics sound similar. Being with the BadBoy label he is doomed to become a one-hit-wonder and soon after bankrupt. Maybe Lil Jon can help him out seeing as they're both from the "A". Overall the CD was tight.
