Yung Jocs [click to read] third studio album Mr. Robinsons Neighborhood, referencing his legal name Jasiel Robinson, is set to be released on Jocs newly formed label called Swagg Team Entertainment.

The label, which is an imprint of Jive Records, has already signed two up-and-coming acts, Hotstylz and GS Boyz. Hotstylz, a group out of Chicago, released the single Lookin Boy last year, which featured a guest appearance by Yung Joc. The GS Boyz hail from Arlington, Texas and have an internet following surrounding their YouTube hit, Stanky Legg.

Joc says his daughter turned him onto the group.

"I walked in the house one day, and my five-year-old daughter and my nephew asked me if I knew how to do the "Stanky Leg." It was a dance they learned off of YouTube...I knew it would be a hitThe hits to come will leave other labels wondering why they didn't sign them GS Boyz first."

In addition to his expansion in the music industry, Yung Joc has taken his business skills to the fashion world with a line of sunglasses called Claudio St. James. Joc says the venture is going to be run with his family.

Joc is currently touring in the UK and throughout several Asian Naval bases and plans to release his upcoming album Mr. Robinsons Neighborhood within the year.
