Atlanta's Yung Joc first blew up big back in 2006, with his debut for Diddy's Bad Boy South label, "New Joc City." You might remember that video for "I Know You See It." Most recently, Joc was featured alongside T-Pain on the track "Addicted to Sex."

Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane seemingly dissed Joc on a track from last year's "Trap God": "I got all eyes on me like Pac did / But I ain't tryin' to go broke like Joc did." So did Joc respond by going all ballistic and beefin' with Gucci?

Nah, he was totally cool about it while also being hilarious. He told V-103's The Loud Pack that he loves Gucci and that "at the end of the day, it's freedom of speech man. Because I could be like, 'Whatever, Gucci ugly as ever.' I could be like, 'He done burned half the strippers in Atlanta.' I could say whatever but that don't mean nothing, it's just freedom of speech, that's what music's about."
