Yung Joc has addressed the viral photo of him rocking a royal blue evening gown in an IG video that has since appeared to have been removed.
The rapper went on Instagram Wednesday in a now-deleted post, to lay out his thoughts about the jokes and the accusations that his evening apparel is a direct result of him dabbling with unknown powers, like the Illuminati.
“Y’all probably wondering what the hell Joc got going on,” the rapper-turned-reality star said in an Instagram video. “Every time I see that lil’ picture, I’m like, ‘Damn. What is going on?’ It’s called internet manipulation. This is going to be one of the craziest times ever in my life or career, when it comes to the internet. Am I gonna take full advantage of it or will I be silenced? I will not be silent and yes, I will take full advantage of it. At this point in my life, you must watch. I’m currently on four television shows on VH1.”
The four VH1 shows he’s referencing are, Scared Famous, Leave It to Stevie, Hip Hop Squares, and Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. Joc, who last year faced jokes from the Internet when he straightened his hair, went on to say that people should stop being so judgmental and whatnot.
“I knew the type of backlash that would come from this s—,” he said. “But let me address one and two things real quick. For those of you so quick to call on the Illuminati and say I sold my soul, tell me how I sold my soul. I f—-d around, some shit had to happen in the situation, I had to man up, put on a f—ng dress. Guess what? It’s just a thread, some s— a man made. It’s a thread. It’s nothing. Now, if you give me a shield and a spear and put on a goddamn leather metal belt around my waist, then I might look like a motherf—ing Roman, 300, Sparta. That’s not the case. All I’ma say is quit being so judgmental people, it’s threads.”
