Young Buck Sentenced: Rapper Gets Three Years on Weapons Charges, Will Serve 18 Months

Young Buck is heading to prison for 18 months after being convicted of weapons charges, MSNBC.com reports. The Nashville rapper was sentenced to three years, but the judge has ordered him to serve his two counts concurrently, meaning he’ll be out in half the time.

“WIth the judge not considering my history to subtract some time, I’m just thankful for what time I do have,” Buck told a local TV station.

The “Straight Outta Cashville” rhymer was arrested in August 2010 following an IRS raid and charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He’s since faced other hardships, including an ongoing bankruptcy case — many of his belongings will be auctioned off later this month — and a March shooting that left his girlfriend wounded and SUV riddled with gun holes.

“I’ve had some rough times,” Buck said. “I’ve been fighting the bankruptcy situation, and there were some court situations.”

Given the luck he’s been having on the outside, jail might not be so bad.
