David Darnell Brown (born March 15, 1981), better known as Young Buck, is an American rapper who is a member of the popular rap group G-Unit.
Young Buck started rapping at the age of fourteen. It was not until the age of fourteen that he started recording in the studio. Although he was in the studio, recording, he was also well-known on the streets because of him drug dealing in his neighborhood. The older drug dealers then gave him the nickname, "Young Buck", due to the fact that although he was dealing drugs at an early age he was also making money. Brian "Baby" Williams spotted Young Buck at the age of sixteen having a rap battle and took on the young rapper. It wasn't long before Buck left high school and was recording along with the rest of the Cash Money Crew. Juvenile and Young Buck left Cash Money at the same time. Young Buck joined UTP Records whilst Juvenile was trying to work out a deal with Suge Knight but Juvenile had legal problems and had to leave before they could finish the deal. Young Buck later signed with G-Unit.
Four years went by with Buck behind the scenes helping his crew 'securing' cars for Juvenile's video "Ha" and other work. After this time, Buck headed back home. It wasn't long before he was in a tight situation. One man came through where Young Buck was dealing drugs and shot the rapper two times. Buck recalled:
|“||"Motherfucker come kick in my door, 4, 5 in the morning. I was laying in the middle of the floor. He came standing on top of me with AK or a Mac something. I ain’t had no gun so I got my ass off the floor and ran towards the kitchen. It just so happen one of my homeboys, he was awake, he pushed the guy back up out the door. I got shot twice. One of them damned near blew my arm off and another caught me in my upper leg, in my thigh. I had so much illegal shit in the house at the time I rode around for 45 minutes to an hour before I even went to the hospital. I damned near lost my life from bleeding so much."||”|
G-Unit was founded when childhood friends, Lloyd Banks, 50 Cent and Tony Yayo decided to make a group with each other. They met Young Buck when Cash Money group came to New York and 50 Cent heard Young Buck rapping. After 50 Cent signed his contract with Aftermath Entertainment Buck joined the group.
50 Cent gave Young Buck a feature on his successful debut Get Rich Or Die Tryin' album on the track "Blood Hound". After this, he appeared on G-Unit's debut album, Beg for Mercy, which went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide. Young Buck then released his debut album
After being with G-Unit for a little over a year, Young Buck released his debut album, Straight Outta Ca$hville with Ca$hville being a play on the name of the place Nashville.
Young Buck recalls:
|“||I got the name from N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton,” says Buck. “Straight Outta Cashville speaks for itself. It tells you my way of living up on to this day. I want the world to get a feel of me, showing them the way I am and the way I get down||”|
Guest producers included Three 6 Mafia, Lil Jon, Kon Artis, and others. Guest appearances were Stat Quo, Lil Flip, David Banner, Ludacris, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo & Kon Artis
The album received very little promotion after November because of the Vibe awards incident after which Young Buck was arrested for assault. Though the case was dropped it had been four months since Buck himself had promoted the album. Straight Outta Ca$hville has since gone Platinum and sold over 2 Million copies worldwide.
Buck has also featured on Lloyd Banks’s debut and Tony Yayo's debut The Hunger For More and Thoughts Of A Predicate Felon respectively. Since then, Buck has also appeared on G-Unit radio mixtapes and fellow G-Unit artists’ albums.
Buck the World is Young Buck’s second album. Its title is a play on the expression "Fuck the World". It was released worldwide on March 27, 2007.
Production included Dr. Dre, Jazze Pha, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Polow Da Don, and Lil Jon amongst others. Guest appearances include 50 Cent, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, Young Jeezy, Bun B, Trick Daddy, and Lyfe Jennings, T.I., Eightball & MJG amongst others.
Buck the World debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, behind Tim McGraw's Let It Go and Now That's What I Call Music! 24, with sales of 141,083 in the first week. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. It has gone on to sell over 500,000 units worldwide so far.
On November 15, 2004, Jimmy James Johnson approached Dr. Dre at the VIBE Awards and reportedly asked for an autograph before Dr. Dre was about to go on stage. After Dr. Dre declined, Johnson began punching him. A brawl ensued with several uniformed police officers attempting to break up the fight. Chairs were thrown, and it was alleged that Young Buck stabbed Johnson in the chest with a knife. After video evidence was uncovered from the awards ceremony, the Santa Monica Police Department issued an arrest warrant issued for him. He eventually surrendered himself and faced up to 8 years in prison for felony assault. In a preliminary hearing it was ruled that there was enough evidence to proceed with a jury trial, however in December 2005, a deal was reportedly struck that would see Young Buck avoid trial. Scott Leemon, Young Buck's attorney said the charges have been "Favorably Resolved" with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.
After The Game was kicked out of G-Unit for being disloyal to the group, Young Buck introduced Spider Loc to 50 Cent. Spider Loc was later signed to G-Unit Records. The Game then released a diss track towards Spider Loc and Young Buck entitled "240 Bars". Young Buck then released a diss track called "The Real Bitch Boy" which featured Spider Loc and used a beat from The Game's track, "Where I'm from". In the song Young Buck talks about how he didn't even know The Game when he mentions The Game's name on "Poppin’ Them Thangs". Also Young Buck talks about The Game being a male stripper and also how 50 Cent helped The Game to be successful with his album The Documentary.
The feud has continued to escalate with there being an exchange of many diss tracks and in February 2007, it was reported that The Game and Young Buck got into a non-physical altercation at a club, during the NBA All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas. The last time that they were seen together was when The Game was part of G-Unit.
Soon after, there was a rumored reconciliation between G-Unit and The Game. However, this was confirmed to be not true by Young Buck. He said
|“||I just think he's digging his own hole 'cause he won't never get another fucking conversation from me in any kind of sense to have resolvement in anything. Now it's like you deal with the goons the way you deal with them, Anything else, if the nigga keep poppin' shit like that, I'ma end his little career through the mixtape world. I ain't even gon' let 50 get dirty with this nigga, because I'm kinda upset at the fact that I heard the bullshit out of him and I don't know if he's aware that I recorded that conversation that we had over the phone. I ain't gon' play with that dude. When I go at him, I'm a go at him and I'ma Ja Rule this shit.||”|
In addition the reconciliation will not happen any time soon because of Tony Yayo's alleged attack on James "Lil' Henchmen" Rosemond, who is the son of Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond, The Game’s manager. Tony Yayo was arrested on March 24, 2007 and was accused of smacking Lil' Henchmen for wearing the shirt of his father's record label, Czar Entertainment. The Game released a new diss entitled "Body Bags" which is aimed at the whole of G-Unit. Spider Loc responded with a song called "Toe Tagz" in which he disses The Game.
Young Buck released a new diss song which is aimed at The Game. It is called "Teach Em Bout Playin" Featuring C-Bo. In the song Young Buck talks about his loyalty to 50 Cent and G-Unit and how The Game never showed his loyalty when he was part of G-Unit. He goes on to say how "Hell will freeze before the G-Unit splits up".
Young Buck also had a feud with New Orleans Cash Money Records rapper, Lil Wayne. The feud initially started when Young Buck witnessed Lil’ Wayne kissing another man to say goodbye. After Young Buck aired his feeling about the situation on local radio stations Lil’ Wayne decided to start a feud as he thought that Buck was trying to discredit him.
Young Buck released a song featuring Tony Yayo called, "Off Parole". It was a "Diss Track" to rapper Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne has responded by saying that Buck is main with Aky P only so he can try to promote his new album and refuses to send a "diss" back. Young Buck said that Wayne couldn't be mad, because Young Buck spoke the truth. He has recently dropped hints on taking New Orleans rappers B.G. and Juvenile's side in the Cash Money-Juvenile/B.G. "Beef" by saying, "You think you got a problem with Juve and B.G.; you'll have a true problem with me." Since then Young Buck and Lil Wayne have settled their differences. Young Buck explained the situation in an interview and said
|“||I said what I said about Lil Wayne and answered it with the truth about the whole kissing situation. I feel like it was pretty much done over the phone||”|
During an interview on Rap City, DJ Khaled was asked to choose three classics out of a total of eight albums. He chose up every album except Get Rich or Die Tryin'. DJ Khaled stated
|“||I'm all about unity, but if you're not down with unity, I can't help you with that.||”|
In response, Young Buck released an un-named "diss" track towards DJ Khaled and Terror Squad. In the song, Young Buck refers to many people on DJ Khaled's new album, We the Best. Young Buck says
|“||Young Jeezy and T.I. be in the street with Buck and Akon sip Don and Wayne know wassup, maybe Fat Joe tellin' you don't fuck with the Unit, Terror Squad is your clique, you gotta stay loyal to it.||”|
At the end of the track, Young Buck speaks towards DJ Khaled. He says
|“||I tried to get your man to play my shit. MIA want to hear my shit. They fucking wit you, but they fuck wit me more... I understand your situation man, being loyal to your crew. Shit I'm loyal like a motherfucker too, but a hit is a hit nigga. For you to win, you gotta play the hits. And I'm bumpin' nigga, so play my shit, nigga, like every other DJ!||”|
In a recent interview Young Buck made comments on the situation with DJ Khaled. He said:
|“||My whole thing is to address the issue, you know, and let the people understand it….You can’t use loyalty as a way to get you out of that situation because I’m loyal like a motherfucker to my crew, G-Unit. But I was still there to create an understanding with game if there was room for it. He’s taking the street beef between Fat Joe and G-Unit and putting it in the middle of the business. I was saying like I got hit records bruh, and I’m moving so respect me the same respect that I’m giving to you. The only reason he could not be playing our records is Fat Joe. He plainly made it clear that it was an Anti-G-Unit thing with his little thing on Rap City.||”|
