Young Buck sentenced to three years in prison

Four years ago, Young Buck was unceremoniously ousted from G-Unit, remaining with the record label. Unable to release a new album, Young Buck began leaking diss records on the internet, aimed at his former cohorts. Done with G-Unit, Young Buck has courted with a number of other labels.

While Young Buck has found support with fellow former G-Unit rapper, Game, he has yet to truly regain his footing. Young Buck has been primarily focused on the development of the Cashville Records roster. Still with a strong roster of talent on the label and one of the most-popular rappers in Nashville, Young Buck is still in demand.

Despite being in demand, Young Buck will soon be away for three years. In addition to the charges against him for tax evasion, Buck was also facing federal weapons charges. Young Buck revealed via Twitter he would be going to court and upon arriving, he was sentneced to three years in prison. There is no set release for him, but he joins the likes of T.I., Lil Wayne, Lil’ Boosie, Ja Rule, and most recently, Beanie Sigel, as rappers who have been sentenced to prison time in recent years.
