Young Joc told Billboard that he will file lawsuit against Bad Boy Records and Block Entertainment for their failure to fulfill contractual obligations.

“I haven’t been paid any royalties since I’ve been out, after over a million albums sold,” Yung Joc told Billboard.com. “For my first album, they gave me a $25,000 advance when I was supposed to get more…Then I had a million dollar budget for my second album, never even got an advance off of it. For the third one they hit me with another $25,000, like I’m some chump in this shit. And I just got tired of it.”

Joc also heated with bad boy said, Diddy said hes got to stay out of it because its between me and Block Entertainment. I was never signed to Block Entertainment, but theyve been interfering with a lot of my business. I feel like [Bad Boy] isnt doing anything to try to intervene and help the situation.”

Joc you really should have known better, Diddy all about the benjamins baby.

Billie Holiday – Strange Fruit

“Strange Fruit” referenced in the song are the bodies of African Americans hanged during lynching. This song sung by the late Billie Holiday was as tragic as it was inspirational. Every time I hear this song my throat starts to get that lump in it, memories of times a lot of us don’t want to remember. I love this song; it is a testament that no matter how ill the situation injustice will not go unnoticed. We are a strong people we have overcome the highest of the hurdles. Those brave individuals who were hung in lynches during that time will not be forgotten. The beautiful fruit that grows in the south a lot of times is not all beautiful as it may seem. “Strange Fruit” would end up being Holidays biggest record and as many recalled she would break down every time she sang it.
