Young Buck's Home Raided By Feds

Young Buck's financial problems come to a head as federal agents raid his home.

The financial problems Young Buck alluded to in his highly-publicized phone call with 50 Cent have come to light, as federal agents raided his home yesterday (August 2) morning.

The agents siezed assets such as recording equipment, jewelry, furniture and platinum wall plaques. The action was taken in response to the rapper owing $300,000 in taxes, despite his lawyers' efforts to protect his assets.

Agents armed with shotguns rand the doorbell, entered, and took the aforementioned items. "The worst part of this isn't the material stuff--that will all be replaced. It's what it does to the people around me. They took my kids' Playstation, my assistants' computers, and baby's mothers' jewelry. They took my home studio so I can't even record..."

Despite this, Buck did not shirk his responsibility in the matter, saying he needed to be more involved in his financial affairs. "I have a new team in place, but I am also paying full attention now. Nothing like this will ever happen again. This is a huge wake up call for all entertainers to stay on top of your own trusted employees and team members, and replace anyone that was put in place by your record label if the situation you have goes sour. This IRS situation came about because I trusted accountants, lawyers, and managers to handle my business for me while I focused on making music. From now on, I am going to stay on top of my own business."

    If you don't pay taxes, what makes you think you better than anyone else? No one wants to pay taxes and taxes do give individuals "stress" but we are not pussies and avoid taxes. Things aint always fair in life but you gotta grow some hairy nuts and face them nigga.

  • mr jamez

    I THINK YOUNG BUCK IS FULL OF SHIT HE NEW WHAT WAS UP HE JUST GOT CAUGHT WITH HIS PANTS DOWN AND REMEMBER THIS IS NOT HIS FIRST TIME NOT PAYING HIS TAXES LOOK AT 50 CENTS HE MAKES WAY MORE MONEY THAN YOUNG BUCK BUT YOU DONT HEAR ANY SHIT ABOUT HIM NOT PAYING HIS TAXES BUT ON THE THE OTHER HAND HE MAKES SOME DOPE MUSIC YOU CANT TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HIM HANDLE YOUR SCANDLE MAN

    Unless he blew through all the money 50 provided him, he should have been able to cut a check for the money and been done with it. Yeah, there are crooked accountants out there stealing money, but at the same time, if you have millions of dollars, you need to know exactly where your money is at all times. It's not like Nic Cage, who can just go out and make ten more movies if he has money problems.

  • MalcolmLittle

    Well one thing's for sure, it's more than obvious none of these cats are in tune with the fraudulence of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, that the bill was never ratified, and there's absolutely NO law in the books requirin ANYONE to pay a federal income tax. It's an unconstitutional tax that can't be apportioned, do the research! And I'm pretty damn disappointed that Nas of ALL people ain't privy to this info already... *smdh* "Read between the lines, and question EVERYTHING." -- MalcolmLittle

      "there's absolutely NO law in the books requirin ANYONE to pay a federal income tax." #fact

    • that sucked

      that's all fine and dandy...but you and i don't run the city. the big-ups do. no court---EVER---has accepted this theory/idea as evidence as to why someone "doesn't have to pay their taxes." you take that conspiracy theory crap somewhere else. it is you, my "militant" friend, that needs to learn the truth... we, as a people, are too blinded---by both sides of these types of arguments---to really know what truth is. we'll either except the majority or the (seemingly outlandish) minority. there's no in between. and that sucks...

  • Pimpin

    True but betrayal is why 50 cant go back to the hood...he turned his back on the people who were basically his "street credibility"...without them 50 wouldve died in the streets at the hands of the supreme team! Thats what kills me whenever 50 wants to speak about betrayal...

    • FUCK YOU PIMPING

      PIMPING YOU FUCKING LYEING BITCH I ALLWAYS SEE 50 COME BACK TO HIS OLD HOOD SHOWING LOVE FAGGOT.

    • skylinez

      He can't go back there? Haha EVERY YEAR he goes back and shows love. Pull ya head outta ya ass and do some research with your dumb ass. Peep the link below http://realtalkny.uproxx.com/2010/06/topic/topic/videos/video-50-cents-forever-young-day-in-jamaica-queens/ Show's how much of an idiot you are.

  • RollN40

  • untoucpuertorocNYC

    Never burn the hand that that feeds...it's beyond comical when you hear rap dudes talking about how "street" their are, or how "hood" they are but when they in a position to rake in millions, it's almost their code of honor never existed...How the fuck are you going to burn bridges when a dude took you physically out the hood and gave you millions? if they did they when they were getting millions, these same cats must of been snitches in the street! You can't say you live by the code of the street when you are in the street and once you get millions, you lose all bearings!

  • Its Um

    Um yea, didn't wesley jail time tell you how serious government want their money. People richer than you can get raided like time and catch jail time/prison sentence.

  • Gabbonz

    This all points directly to one guy and that's one guy only... 50 CENT!!! RFLMAO!!! 50 HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS...WE ALL KNOW THAT 50 HAS TIES AND AFFILIATIONS WITH THE COPS AND THE FEDS...WHY DO YOU THINK HE KEEPS ACTING IN THOSE MOVIE ROLES WITH COPS? Righteous Kill,Streets of Blood,and Caught In The Crossfire ARE ALL COP MOVIES. HOW MANY TIMES DOES 50 HAS TO POINT IT OUT THAT HE'S IN CAHOOTS WITH THE COPS? 50 MAKES FUN OF FAT JOE'S RECORDS SALES AND THEN HE HAS YOUNG BUCK's HOME RAIDED BY THE FEDS. SORRY 50 BUT YOU MAY THINK THAT YOU ARE A VERY SNEAKY CONNIVING MAN AND THAT YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH EVERYTHING BY STAYING HIDDEN JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE TONS OF MONEY TO DO IT BUT THIS SHIT IS TOO CLOSE FAM AND IT'S VERY RECOGNIZABLE. YOU CAN'T DISS FAT JOE AND HAVE YOUNG BUCK'S HOUSE RAIDED BY THE FEDS IN THE SAME WEEK AND THEN ACT LIKE YOU AIN'T HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. I CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH YOU NIGGA! IT'S OBVIOUS THAT 50 HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS AND 50 WILL NEVER GET MURKED BECAUSE HE'S PROTECTED BY HIS BEST FRIENDS WHICH ARE THE COPS. THE ONLY WAY 50 GETS MURKED IS IF THE COPS DECIDE THAT THEY ARE FINALLY TIRED OF HIM AND WANT TO GET RID OF HIM AND NO LONGER NEED HIS SERVICES AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY'VE USED HIM UP. YOU CAN KEEP PLAYING THESE GAMES FIF BUT YOU HAD BETTER BE CAREFUL. DON'T THINK THAT YOU'RE NOT UNDER FIRE. WE CAN ALL SEE WHAT YOUR DOING SO DON'T THINK THAT PUBLIC IS STUPID AND CAN'T CATCH ON. IT'S JUST LIKE WHEN YOU HAD YOUR HOUSE BURNED DOWN TO GET YOUR BABY'S MOTHER OUT OF THERE. WE KNOW YOU CURTIS! ALL THIS SHIT IS GONNA COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU FAM. I DON'T SEE HOW YOU CAN SLEEP AT NIGHT. I'M SURE YOUR AWAKE 24/7.

    • skylinez

  • jogrind

    @danny dread ,....... read the first line...... A lot of these celebs owe taxes but they can make the money to pay they but Buck can't with that contract he. 50 knows Buck will eat if he let buck out of the contract. Otherwise he would have dropped him already.

    I wouldn't place all the blame on your team. They didn't rent exotic cars in Atlanta and drive up to Cashville or do drugs with your money. As a student with hopes to earn an Accounting degree, we don't dig in your bank account and I sure lawyers can't either. You just thought you had unlimited spending potential.

    • STUPIDWHITEMAN

      U stupid F*ck.. Im a CPA & I have an MBA in accounting and i can tell you for a fact that accountants steel all the time. Do you ever read the wallstreet journal and financial times? U prob dont, cuz if you did you would see how many crackaz be getting locked up for doing so called "white collar" crimes. I guess you never heard of Enron or WorldCOM. SMH dumb azz welcome to the real world!
