Yung Joc has weighed in on the ongoing hot-topic of snitching and offered up his take on the difference between being a snitch and seeking justice.

In a new interview with Vlad TV published on Thursday (March 30), the Atlanta native provided examples of what would constitute seeking justice for a loved one.

“I just feel like sometimes the whole concept of no snitching, people don’t understand the parameters of,” Joc began. “If one of my family members or somebody under my care, under my umbrella, under my family tree is murdered senselessly and I see you but the police catch you? So you gotta ask the streets, am I supposed to say, ‘No, that’s not him,’ so he walks? And when he walks, what’s gon’ happen? Either I or somebody affiliated with me is gon’ go retaliate seeking vengeance for that person we lost.”

He continued: “Now if you go and kill him, then he dies and now another one of ours is locked away or possibly killed trying to kill him. When if the police already got him, it’s his crime and I can actually serve justice to the people on my side. That’s not snitching. People say taking the stand, ‘Oh you not supposed to affiliate no kind of way.’ What ungoverned society are you living in? The average person talking like that probably don’t even got a bank account or pay taxes. It’s a certain disconnect.”

Snitching has been discussed a lot as of late because of cases like 6ix9ine’s, Gunna’s and more. Chicago rapper 600 Breezy even recently said he thinks Quavo will be considered a snitch if he were to take the stand in TakeOff’s forthcoming murder trial, despite the slain Migos rapper being his actual family.

“I doubt one bit that Quavo would get on the stand and say anything that’ll make people say, ‘Oh, Quavo a snitch,’” Breezy said. “For the sake of his career and all that shit? His nephew gone. His nephew dead and gone. Nothing he can do to bring him back.”

He added: “He wouldn’t do that to himself. If Quavo sat there and took the stand to say anything about that situation, he got the snitch jacket on him now.”

While emphasizing that the rules are the rules, 600 Breezy did admit that they’re not always the most sensible ones.

“Where we come from and how we live, it’s just the rules how it’s set up,” he said. “You can’t be a snitch. You can’t be labeled as a snitch, you don’t want to be a snitch. It’s codes. A lot of this shit is stupid – don’t get me wrong.”
