Yung Joc may want to wear a hat for a while.
Twitter has absolutely gone to town this morning on the rapper’s new haircut, comparing his fresh side-part to the Popeye’s spokesperson, Apu from “The Simpsons” and even SpongeBob SquarePants on his way to the prom. There were plenty more mocking memes where those came from — our favorites are posted below.
Beyond the jokes, Joc has another tie to television: In 2014, he joined the VH1 reality dating series “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” as a supporting cast member.
Joc — real name Jasiel Amon Robinson — actually has some sway in the hairstyling industry itself. Per Wikipedia, his father, Stanley Tucker, owned a hair-care products company, which helped Joc get an early gig writing a jingle for Revlon.
Beyond commercials, the rapper’s “It’s Goin’ Down” won a BET Award as 2006’s Hip-Hop Track of the Year. There, he’s been nominated five other times, though mostly that year and thanks to that song. The track also landed him a Grammy nomination in 2007, as well as three Billboard Award nods, three MTV Video Music Awards opportunities and a pair of Soul Train Music Awards nominations. He didn’t win any of those.
Remember the single via the video above.
Below are some of the best Twitter shots fired at the 33-year-old Atlanta emcee this morning. Remember Joc: You can always shave your head.
