Rapper Yung Joc has been well for holding a solid position in the industry both financially and socially. But it appears that Yung cherishes every cent he has. Recently, Yung Joc asked the stranger to return the $1,800 he unintentionally sent them via Zelle.

On Wednesday, October 19, the Atlanta rapper shared a screenshot of the text conversations he sent to the unidentified receiver in an Instagram confession. Joc begged the unidentified person in them to refund the money, but it seemed they had blocked his number.

“Hi can you please return the $1,800 that I mistakenly sent to you account via Zelle. I don’t know you nor do you know me. Please do the right thing. God has a bigger blessing for you……. I know you’ve blocked my number and that’s ok I just need the $1,800 that was sent to your account via Zelle.”

“So I sent them a Zelle by mistake and they won’t return my money…. can y’all please call/text them and ask them to return my lil change? [redacted becaue he actually doxxed the number].”


Yung Joc was detained in May on suspicion of child abandonment, but after posting a $1,300 bond, he was only detained for an hour in the Gwinnett County Jail. The rapper claimed that his decision to reduce his $5,000 monthly child support payment in order to save money for his wedding is what led to his imprisonment.

“I had been paying so much money up ahead because I didn’t want no smoke. Once I realized like, ‘You know what? I don’t have to pay you this much money. I’m about to get married. I gotta take my time and put finances toward my wedding’ … Now, the mother got mad and felt like, ‘No, you supposed to keep paying me this.’”

“So while my attorney and her attorney are going back and forth to establish [my payments], they put this out on me. I didn’t even know I had a warrant. So here I am, just living my life casually, still paying child support, and suddenly they put out this child abandonment warrant because they didn’t want to accept the $1,500.”

Due to the success of his smash track “It’s Goin’ Down,” Yung Joc earned $10 million in 2006 and was listed as the 20th richest rapper by Forbes. Due to his close friends and relatives nagging him for donations, he later referred to it as “the worst thing that could have ever happened to me.” The former Bad Boy rapper was observed operating a vehicle for the ride-hailing service in 2020.

The rapper pulled up to Pull Up N Go and was made fun of by two female passengers. He disputed, nevertheless, that he accepted the position because he had “fallen off.” However, what do you think about Yung’s recent sloppiness? Let us know in the comments. Keep checking Thirsty for more updates.
