Young Buck Auctioning Off Belongings to Foot IRS Bill
Young Buck is auctioning off his things to help pay for a $300,000IRS bill. The former G-Unit member’s belongings — which will go up for sale in Antioch, Tenn. on October 28 — include a diamond watch, recording equipment, a picture of Snoop Dogg and Tupac, and his Cashville Records diamond chain.
The items up for sale are just some of those seized from Buck’s Nashville home on August 3. Following the seizure, the rapper filed for bankruptcy two days later, but that case has since been voluntarily dismissed. “This IRS situation came about because I trusted accountants, lawyers, and managers to handle my business for me while I focused on making music,” he explained to TMZ in August. “From now on, I am going to stay on top of my own business.”
Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, has been going through a slue of financial issues since leaving 50 Cent’s G-Unit crew. The Tennessee native waged a public war against 50, blaming the hip-hop mogul for ruining his career. Buck has since announced a $5 million dollar lawsuit against 50, G-Unit Inc. and CEO Sha Money XL, in part to be released from his recording contract. Adding to his bad luck, the 29-year-old released his third album ‘The Rehab,’ which sold a dismal 6400 units in its first week. Buck’s property will be open for inspection on October 27 from noon to 5PM. Bidders are allowed to register from 8-10AM. Click here to view photos of the items up for sale.
