Young Buck - Young Buck To Start Prison Term In August

Embattled rapper Young Buck has been ordered to check into prison next month (Aug12) to begin serving a three-year sentence for weapons possession.
The former G-Unit bandmember was hit with a gun charge after tax officials discovered the weapon during a raid on his Tennessee home in 2010 to repossess his belongings as part of a financial dispute over more than $300,000 (£189,561) in unpaid taxes.
Young Buck, a convicted felon who is banned from owning a weapon, reached a plea deal with prosecutors in March (12) in a bid to avoid a possible 10-year sentence, and he appeared in a Nashville court on Friday (13Jul12) to be officially handed down his punishment.
Under the terms of the agreement, the rapper will serve three years behind bars, but will be given an early release after 18 months if he stays out of trouble while locked up. He will then be placed on three years' probation.
The star's remaining belongings, including pricey recording equipment, album plaques and diamond-encrusted jewellery, is set to go under the hammer on 26 July (12) to pay off part of his tax debt, and Young Buck admits he is grateful to finally start moving on from his troubles.
He says, "I've had some rough times. I've been fighting the bankruptcy situation, as well as my court situations. My pride is through the roof. My head is held high. I'm just looking to get all this behind me."
Young Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, will begin his prison term on 13 August (12).
