Atlanta bred-emcee and former Bad Boy artist Yung Joc has signed a deal with RCA for his new label Swagg Team Entertainment.
The exclusive deal, which was inked with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Music Group and a production deal with Battery/Jive Records, allows Yung Joc to not only be an artist but also to sign emerging acts to his new label Swagg Team Entertainment.
“Joc is a triple threat. As an artist, executive and personality, he is now entering a higher phase of his career and I’m happy to play a part in it,” affirms Bryan Leach, President, Polo Grounds Music. “I feel with Pitbull, Yo Gotti and now Yung Joc, Polo Grounds has an amazing front line of smart, talented, hungry artists that will continue to show why it’s still all about making hit records and outworking everyone else.”
Yung Joc, who is credited for discovering the GS Boyz (“Stanky Leg), stated that he will actively seek break out talent to sign to his label.
“It is my pleasure and honor to announce my affiliation and new partnership with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Music Group and Battery/Jive Records,” states Yung Joc. “Now I can actually work and not wonder if I’m going to be held back from building my own brand as well as the Swagg Team brand. I’m very excited to work with this team.”
To celebrate the new deal, Joc states that he is currently working on his new album tentatively titled Mr. Robinson’s Neighborhood, slated for a late 2010 release.
