His love for the community and relentless drive for educating the youth has molded Yoc1 to do more than just perform his music, he shares many stories and moments from his own personal journey so others may learn from his mistakes.

Juice County: Tha Hard Way EP
This project is the first official release by Yoc1 and he wanted it to be a memorable one. 310Prophet agreed to come onboard and contribute to production on the EP but soon after he agreed to help out he decided to handle all the production himself. “Juice County: Tha Hard Way EP” leans heavy on the Golden Era sound of hip hop in general from the warm production of the debut single “Tha Hard Way” to the heavily G funk influenced title track “Juice County” featuring Moe Beezy & Vic Smitty. There are a few interludes on the EP as well that give a little insight to a day in the life of Yoc1.
Pushing the envelope with the “GhettoNation Movement” Yoc1 pushes a vivid vision of balance in the street and entertainment by means of a worldwide push with unity as the common goal. Creating opportunity for unification, support and advancement in today's trendy generation.
Yoc1 strongly believes in his quote,
“As I Rise, We Rise Together”.
