Rapper Young Buck has been on a downhill spiral every since he was dropped from 50 Cent’s G Unit records.. Earlier in the year the “Shorty Wanna Ride” rapper barely escaped with his life when he and a female passenger were victims of a drive by shooting.
Now according to the website TMZ the rapper will be serving 18 months in prison for gun possession:
The rapper has agreed to serve 18 months in prison for gun possession, following a massive IRS raid on his Nashville home in 2010.
According to the deal, Buck agreed to plead guilty to possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon.
According to legal docs filed in the case, federal agents recovered the firearms in Buck’s house during a 2010 raid – when feds busted into the house to repossess a bunch of the rapper’s belongings to settle a $300,000 tax debt.
According to the docs, feds found a .40 caliber Glock 22 in Buck’s home along with ammunition. As a convicted felon, Buck is prohibited from possessing ANY kinds of firearms.
As for the felony rap — Buck was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon after stabbing some guy at the Vibe Awards in 2004.
The judge signed off on the plea deal already but won’t formally sentence the rapper ’til July 13th.
While most rappers undoubtedly enter prison and come out with street cred that helps their career this prison stint will only lesson the likeability of Buck ever having a good record deal again. It’s officially a wrap.
