While Young Buck was presented as one third of G-Unit, his movement meant much more in the South. He was the first artist of such high magnitude to make it in hip hop from Nashville. The first move Young Buck made when he got on was to put his city on.
Young Buck titled his debut album, Straight Outta Ca$hville, and began notching hits. His first single, “Let Me In,” featuring 50 Cent, was a smash. But, Young Buck formed his own identity with fans with the second single, “Shawty Wanna Ride,” which was owning ten years ago.
The past few years, until last year, were tough on G-Unit members and fans, alike, as the world watched all of the relationships erode. While G-Unit went dormant, Trick Trick made moves in his native, Detroit, labeling it a “no fly zone,” meaning rappers had to check in before just coming there. Now, this is a move Young Buck is making with his native Nashville.
