â€œLove & Hip Hop: Atlantaâ€� star Yung Joc said heâ€™s gotten a ton of celebrity support for driving for a ride-sharing company, despite being job-shamed by a couple of disrespectful fans who rode in his car.
The 36-year-old Atlanta native explained to TMZ there were several reasons why he chose to work for the relatively new ride-sharing app called Pull Up N Go â€” and it is not because he is broke. He is far from that. Interestingly enough, Joc decided to talk to the entertainment publication while he had a customer in his backseat.
The â€œItâ€™s Going Downâ€� rapper said itâ€™s a nice way to make extra cash, while also teaching young people about earning an honest living. He also said he wanted to check this box off of his bucket list.
A video of the â€œItâ€™s Goin Downâ€� rapper and entrepreneur went viral when fans tried to job-shame him for driving for a ride-sharing service called Pull Up N Go. They pestered Joc for thinking that he had â€œfallen offâ€� on hard times. But the notoriety that heâ€™s gotten from this actually enables him to better explain to the young kids out there about having a hustlerâ€™s mentality.
Joc has been donating his time and volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta for years. In terms of business ventures, Joc has plenty. In addition to being a radio personality and his recurring role on â€œLove & Hip Hop: Atlanta,â€� Joc just opened up a new nightclub.
