Nashville Rapper Facing Federal Charges

Young Buck Charged With Being Convicted Felon In Possession Of Firearm, Ammunition

A notorious rapper from Nashville is in trouble again. Young Buck, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, is facing federal charges for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.Channel 4 was the only station in federal court Monday afternoon when the rapper was brought in in handcuffs to appear before the judge. As the indictment spells out, these latest charges could mean ten years in prison.He's the only rapper from Nashville to sell more than a million records. At Christmas 2009, Young Buck said “it just feels good to be able to be a helping hand to these families.”Through his Toys for Joy Express program, Young Buck gave more than 300 Nashville children and their families toys, household goods and clothes for Christmas.But lately the rapper has been in financial and now legal trouble. He's now facing federal charges. According to an indictment unsealed Monday, he's charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a .40-caliber pistol and ammunition.Federal authorities say all this happened on or about Aug. 3.And that was about the same time federal agents raided his Hendersonville home. Records that Channel 4 obtained showed that the 29-year-old owed roughly $300,000 in taxes dating back to 2006.A few months later, the rapper sued the Internal Revenue Service, saying the government's response to his tax problems hurt his ability to make money and pay off his debts.Last year, he also filed for bankruptcy and sued his former manager and rapper 50 Cent over a contract dispute that prevented Young Buck from releasing a new album.Outside federal court Monday, Young Buck, nor his manager, commented on the latest charges.But inside court, Brown pleaded not guilty, and his attorney said these charges came as a surprise to both he and his client. Brown is out on bond, but according to the terms of his release, he must surrender his passport. However, Young Buck is supposed to perform in Canada soon.So the judge is allowing the rapper to post $100,000 bond by Friday and then he'll get his passport back.In 2004, Young Buck was charged and convicted of stabbing a man at the Vibe Awards in California and with that conviction, he can no longer carry a gun or ammunition.
