By Ryan Houston - bio | email

ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –Platinum Selling Rapper Jasiel Robinson, better known as Young Jock, will perform in Albany tonight. He signed autographs at Albany State University this afternoon.

Hundreds of students lined up to meet the hit maker. Yung Joc will perform at a Back to School Bash at the Sand Trap Lounge later tonight.

He's best known for his 2007 hit "It's going down." After selling millions of records... he credits his success to God and hard work.

"You have to take any effort to make it happen. Sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do. You might have to stay around a little longer, and always put God first. I live by a saying from my dad 'plan your work and work your plan,'" said Hip Hop Rapper Yung Joc.

He parted ways with Sean 'Diddy' Combs Bad Boy Entertainment after his debut album. He since started his own record label called World South Entertainment.
