Yung Joc feels like 42 Duggs dissed him in the hit song “We Paid.”
Atlanta is one of the greatest city’s we have seen in Hip-Hop culture. Non-ATL natives have developed through close association with ATL artists and influences. This is the case for 42 Dugg.
The Detroit, MI rapper met Lil Baby in 2017 during a dice game. After building a relationship with “The Bigger Picture” rapper, he signed to his 4PF label and Yo Gotti’s CMG. Lil Baby is one of Hip-Hop’s most in-demand superstars. Any association with him can benefit any upcoming rapper. 42 Dugg is making the best of his relationship with his label CEO. He was featured on “Grace” and “We Paid” from Lil Baby’s platinum My Turn album. The latter peaked at No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts.
In the opening line of “We Paid,” Dugg says “Before I Go Broke like Joc.” One can presume that the rapper is dissing to Yung Joc. The “It’s Going Down” rapper recently appeared on the Ugly Money Podcast to address the line.
The rapper claimed to be half sleep upon hearing it.
“No one heard it when I heard it,” said the ATL veteran. “You ever hear some s**t so shocking you gotta look around like a ni**a in the room with you.”
He goes on to express his admiration of Lil Baby’s work and his solid relationship with both Quality Control’s CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas and Yo Gotti. As for 42 Duggs, Joc was unfamiliar with the 27-year-old rapper until that line.
