Aside from his neighborhood issue, Joc recently talked about signing a new deal with Polo Grounds/RCA Music Group.
"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."

Joc also released a statement confirming his new deal and move from Bad Boy.
"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." (Statement)
Bad Boy artist Red Cafe recently talked about Joc's move off the label.
"You just gotta have you business right," Cafe said comparing his situation to Joc's. "It's no different than any other building. All these buildings have they flaws, it's really about having your business correct, having a good lawyer, reading your contract, knowing what the requirements are and what the obligations are. A lot of people don't look at that. They expect things that were never an obligation...Experience, that's the best teacher. I done experienced a lot of sh*t, going through different labels, sh*t like that. So it's all good." (Hip Hop Beef)
