Rapper Yung Joc Fails To Show Up At Arraignment On Carrying Concealed Weapon Charge

CLEVELAND (AP) — Rapper Yung Joc is now considered a fugitive.

The performer failed to show up for his arraignment Wednesday in Cleveland on a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

The 27-year-old from Atlanta is accused of trying to take a loaded gun on a Delta Air Lines flight Sunday.

The performer, whose real name is Jasiel Robinson, was arrested at a standard security checkpoint at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

Police found a semiautomatic handgun and ammunition in his carryon bag. He told police he didn’t know the weapon was there and was released the next day on $50,000 bond.

On Wednesday the judge doubled Robinson’s bail.

His attorney was apologetic, and said Robinson is out of town on personal and family business.

Yung Joc was one of last year’s biggest hip-hop stars, selling a million copies of his debut album “New Joc City,” behind the Grammy-nominated song “It’s Goin’ Down.” His follow-up album “Hustlenomic$” was released in August.
