Young Buck Sentenced To 18 Months In Prison
Young Buck faces 18 months in prison following weapons charges.
The judge also ordered Buck to stay off drugs, and he will have to wear an electronic monitor while he is out.
Young Buck spoke to NBC affiliate WSMV-TV after walking out the court Friday.
"With the judge not considering my history to subtract some time, I'm just thankful for what time I do have," Young Buck told WSMV-TV.
The former G-Unit rapper, real name David Darnell Brown, has fallen on nothing but hard times in the past few years.
In August 2010, his Tennessee mansion was raided by federal agents, who seized jewelry, platinum plaques and slapped the rapper with gun possession charges. Buck would later file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Then in October 2010, the IRS announced plans to auction off Buck's seized property. This past March, an already rocky time only got rockier, when Buck's SUV shot up while driving down the street, wounding his girlfriend in the shoulder.
"I've had some rough times," he added to WSMV. "I've been fighting the bankruptcy situation, and there were some court situations."
But even with 18 months, Buck is viewing that as a break, because he could have gotten 10 years. He has made plans to come out a better person, he told WSMV.
"My pride is through the roof," Buck said. "My head is held high, and I'm just looking to get all this behind me."
