Young Buck Facing 10 Years On Gun Charges

Buck is claiming innocence on felony gun charges, but he's facing a long bid

Former G-Unit rapper Young Buck is facing a 10 year bid after being indicted on Monday, March 7th. The Tennesee native was found to be in possession of a .40 caliber pistol and ammunition, which is a serious offence for a convicted felon. Buck has plead not guilty to the charges and has been released on $100,000 bond after surrendering his passport.

Nashville's WSMV Channel 4 reported that Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, appeared before a Judge in handcuffs on Monday. Although prosecutors unsealed the indictment yesterday, the incident leading to the charges occurred August 3rd, when Federal agents raided his home over a $300,000 tax dispute with the IRS.

Buck's prior felony conviction stems from his infamous stabbing of Jimmy Lee Johnson after he punched Dr. Dre at the 2004 Vibe Awards

    Oh darling, I don't know what part of GA you are in, but in my part of GA, all rules are off. They might get 10 years and they might get probation. It's all in how much money they have and who they know in my area of GA. GA does not have minimum sentencing that is mandated and regulated. ======================== Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is a federal offense... Minimum sentence is probation... Maximum sentence is 10 years in federal prison... Source(s): 12 years as an Indiana probation officer...and constant contact with federal probation officers.....

    This snake made his bed along time ago now he sleeping in it! I don't care or have no mercy on no man who f*cks his own self-over, especially a once multi-million dollar man when its everyday 9-5 hardworking people out here struggling to make ends meet n buy this high-@ss $4 gas just to go to work, who never owned a house, luxury cars, diamond jewlery and all that other f*ckry that this clown called stuntin'....Its funny to see soo-many people saluting Young Broke now but yall wasn't behind him when CASHMONEY aka YMCMB wouldn't put him on, when Juve was poppin' wit his UTP situation but left him stranded, when DEATHROW-Suge Knight laught at his raps! It took a n*gga from New York thats the most-hated to give him a chance at his dream and look how he showed his appreciation...If it wasn't for 50Cent yall wouldn't even know Young Broke to even be a fan of him! When he dissing G-Unit yall stans luv it, just like Gayme when he does it but where was yall before they signed to G-Unit???...Their most success was on G-Unit!!!...They were nobodies to the world before G-Unit!!!....They both even tried to get back with G-Unit after all the disrespect!!! They both knew the caliber of n*gga they was dealing with in 50 so when they decided to go against him they made their bed! This is even more sad for Young Broke b/c 50 did more for him on a personal level than Gayme! I ain't never had a n*gga pay my bills, my taxes to keep me and my family from being evictted and my home from being taken, thats like a n*gga might as well be f*cking my wife b/c he doing my job! At the end of the day Young Broke is from da streets right, well street-n*ggas go to and from jail everyday so handle it n*gga! By the way where all them rap-n*ggas that you was dissing G-Unit for at now??? Where they been at since u been at odds with 50 and them??? The same place they was when u couldn't pay ur taxes the 1st-time around when u ran to 50 crying bout the IRS putting ur weak-@ss out on the streets and u ain't have no money to pay C-Bo & the Outlawz b/c u broke!...smdh@Banrupt-Buck

    Buck need to do like TI: kiss alot of ass, shell outta hella dough, do like 8 free concerts in support of "the kids", & if he lucky they will let him off. T.I. had like 4 automatic weapons in a car. This man got 1 pistol in the house & they going nuts...smfh. But ppl bring up a valid point; Buck caught the original charge from stabbin the man that punched Dre. U tellin me Dre couldnt give him a loan or a contract or a letter of recommendation or soumthing?! How quickly niggas forget...

    yo I gotta say this...I notice when ever a black dude gets knocked you always have your white person saying "be smart and follow the rules" GTFOH wit that horse shit! You're not in the man's shoes first of all, word life...and judging by you being on a hip hop site I would guess you like to play the hard role yourself. But when the cops roll up, you trade in your "black" card for your get out of jail free card in a heartbeat. The system is designed to entrap my peoples and I, not you. Its easy for you to say be smart. If you were smart, you would stay true to who you are instead of perpetrating some fraud on this site. As a man, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta, and pray to whoever you follow that you won't end up in a worse situation. Thats point blank. Keep yo head up Buck... And For my good peoples...I like to re post these comments...concrete street rules...some of you cats that don't know but play in the concrete jungle should respect and remember these rules,it can save your life and money. provided by ya boy El bark... "That a nigggah only fuk with you, if its benefits them. In most cases. NOT ALL." And the most absolute rule that MANY dudes don't remember "If you not a day 1 niggah, You are only a business associate, In most cases."

    Federal gun laws are different. No worse just different. Just look at T.I. vs Lil Wayne & Ja-Rule's local NYC gun charges!!!

  • RED

    He will do jail time having a gun when you are a felon is very serious,and it is a federal charge.In those cases when you get that kind of charge you go to jail for some time period.In ny they do not play it is manditory you get prison time just look at ja rule or plaxico Burress.So young buck will go to jail for ten years ,and will still be in the whole with the government.He will not get no shows because of his time away so he will not be able to pay back the 300k,and will have his house taken.

      Tennessee isn't New York City!!! Look at T.I. in Georgia with all those guns he had and he got 1 year. Those guys in New York had local City gun charges and NYC has the strictest gun laws in America. That house was Buck's public studio as well. A lot of people walked in and out of that house. He has ustream broadcast to prove it.

    I like his music, but damn, these brothas I feel for. Why can't they make their music, make their money & live decent law abiding lives? Guns are killing many of our people & putting the rest of the felons behind bars for possession. I don't think I could lead a happy life if I was constantly in such situations where I had to keep a gun on me.

  • G-Unit

    Really hope he doesn't have to do time. Wish you luck Buck!

  • Mitch 3K

    Hey, if it was one of us they'd do te same thing, he shouldnt be treated any diffrent. Stupid fuck knows he's a convicted felon, knows he isnt allowed to have a gun, and he had one anyway...... You break the law, you get caught, you get locked up, way it works. I like his music but these rappers out here are stupid as fuck these days, bunch of brain dead idiots who dont appreciate what they have and deserve to lose it for the way they act. Buck is a perfect example of an idiot, running around in 08 screaming fuck G Unit at concerts when you know damn well your still under contract, then looking for sympathy because he shot his own career in the head.......... I dont feel sorry for this dumbass, he did it all to himself

    Buck was always a real dude. From the heart and good lyrics. Sucks things went the way they did. Shouldn't have spent so much money on so much shit and maybe 50 wouldn't have distanced himself and ultimately block him from profit.

    I THINK HE JUST NEEDED 50 TO STOP BLOCKING HIS RADIO PLAY, SHELFING HIS ALBUMS AND STOP HOLDING HIS CONTRACT AND PUBLISHING RIGHTS IF FIF WASN'T GOING TO USE HIM ANYMORE.

    Its funny how T.I. and Lil Wayne can get caught for weapons trafficking and several guns and both get like 1 or 2 year stints. This is a prime example of what fame gets you. An easy way out. Just like Diddy did Shyne. Shyne was pretty big at the time but it was a David vs Goliath on the blacktop= no rocks to throw at a nigga. Hope Buck beats this.

    It aint like Buck was riding around wit heat and got caught wit it...when them irs agents raided his house they found the gun in his house along with some bullets and everybody should have protection in they house...he actually has a good chance of beating this case... so knock off all the negative shit when yall have no clue what your talking about. Buck aint thinking about G Unit or any of that old shit Buck is making moves on his own and regardless of what the media says he still gettin money and has always had money...when mouthafuckas think your broke you aint gotta worry about people askin u for shit remember that.

    The IRS raided his house with shotguns over taxes, they take his studio equipment and then they arrested him for a 40. cal and some bullets found in his house??? The feds and the IRS might have both been in that raid at the same time. I think the feds used that IRS raid as a chance to search his house as well.

    The rapper's home was raided in August 2010 by Internal Revenue Service agents for $300,000 in unpaid taxes. During the raid, officials alleged they discovered a .40-caliber pistol and ammunition belonging to Young Buck, according to local NBC affiliate WSMV. The indictment in the case had been sealed until Monday. As a previously convicted felon (for stabbing a man at the Vibe Awards in 2004), he is not allowed to possess a gun and could face up to 10 years in prison if found guilty. The one-time G-Unit star (real name: David Brown), appeared in court before a judge in handcuffs and pleaded not-guilty. He was released on a $100,000 bond. FOR DR. DRE????? WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU THINK BUCK HEARD FROM DRE????? BUCK SHOULD HAVE LET DRE GET HIS ASS STOMPED!!!
