The modern world is a tough place to be. Everything costs too much, the political chasm has never been wider. Furthermore, there's an ongoing pandemic that's killed millions and the oxy epidemic of the 2010s has become the fentanyl epidemic of the 2020s. While there are those who try to see the positives in the world, but for many, the world has become a dark and inhospitable place.
Someone who seems particularly effected is rapper Yung Joc. Joc is best known for singles like "It's Going Down" and two albums from the mid 2000s that both peaked at #3 in the charts. Additionally, Joc shared a message of support, posting a black and white video of him praying with the caption, "f you're in need of a miraculous breakthrough copy this reel and pass it on".
Yung Joc Shares Emotional Video
Young Joc took to Instagram to share the effect that the modern world has had on him. "Raw Emotions........ No hiding behind facades.......Can I cry in front of the world? Why ami crying. This world is such a wicked place at times.... Our kids are dying before they can live in these streets... Our homes are filled with hate because it's all around us.. Destruction is prevalent.... drugs are running rampant in our community...... So many are confused...." However, he wasn't finished, "Ascension is a necessity........ Let it out in front of the world........ do you ever feel like just letting it all out? Some will laugh and that's expected... Some will tap in to see if I'm ok and that's appreciated..... I begging for mercy on all of us no soul unaccounted for.... I Love You ." Furthermore, the message was accompanied by another black-and-white video of Joc crying.
Furthermore, a number of users praised Joc for his bravery to share it. "Crazy thing is ....if he decided to take his life or if he died all of the people laughing would be the first to post a long ass paragraph like they knew him w a pic literally posted on their page smh." Additionally, they continued. "We never know what a person is going through. Empathy is lacking on the realest shit these days. Maybe this is a cry for help. If Joc is your dog the best u can do is check on your boi. Feel better Joc," reads a comment with over 500 likes.
