Sometimes you just never know what will go viral but in the case of Yung Joc’s new hairdo, it’s clear his smooth tresses were going to cause the internet to go wild with laughter.
The rapper and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star was turned into countless memes in light of his newly pressed hair. According to the rapper, he wanted to be in control of the roasting session. “I created that one, how about that,” he said during his interview with Atlanta’s V-103 Wednesday (Aug. 31.) “I knew they were going to get on me, so I had to get in on it too.” The memes he refers to are the popular Olive Oil ad and the Five Heartbeats. He also claimed he made six others that gained traction on the web.
Joc explained he got the hairstyle for an upcoming movie role. In addition to his slot on LHHATL, Joc will star in the upcoming stoner comedy Waiting to Inhale with comedian Shawty as well as a slew of other projects. He also promised critics the ‘do is all natural, claiming the stylist performed a simple blowout. “No relaxer, no hot comb, nothing,” he said. “I’m from Atlanta, for real for real. Back in the days, there were cats walking around with finger waves and s-curls and I don’t have any of that.”
Joc has also dipped his toes into the fashion pool by supporting t-shirts bearing his hairstyle.
