Exclusive Interview: Young Buck Talks With Jonathan Martin Outside Court About His 18 Months Prison Sentence.
According to MSNBC:
Multi-platinum rapper Young Buck was sentenced Friday to three years in prison after he was convicted on weapons charges.
Young Buck, a Nashville native whose real name is David Darnell Brown, was arrested for possessing weapons despite being a convicted felon following a stabbing several years prior.
The judge sentenced the rapper to serve his two counts concurrently, so he will spend a total of 18 months in jail.
“With the judge not considering my history to subtract some time, I’m just thankful for what time I do have,” Young Buck said.
Young Buck is also involved in a bankruptcy case after a contract dispute with record label G-Unit Records. Numerous pieces of gold and diamond jewelry once owned by the rapper will be auctioned by the IRS on July 26.
“I’ve had some rough times. I’ve been fighting the bankruptcy situation, and there were some court situations,” he said.
In December, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge in Nashville converted the rapper’s bankruptcy case from a Chapter 11 reorganization to a Chapter 7 liquidation. The trustee administering his estate said she planned to sell the trademarked “Young Buck” name along with other assets seized for non-payment.
Creditors submitted claims totaling $11.5 million, including $10 million that the label G-Unit Records said Young Buck owed them.
Other items to be sold at the auction include a diamond necklace, a Breitling Bentley watch, recording studio equipment, art work, televisions and a Tennessee Titans refrigerated soda machine.
