Young Buck Could Face 10 Years In Jail


Former G-Unit member Young Buck faces some hefty consequences after being charged with possession of firearm.

As he was charged and convicted of stabbing a man at the Vibe Awards in 2004, the rapper was forbidden to carry a gun as part of his sentencing. As he has broken this term, he now faces 10 years in prison. However, it seems the judge on his case is looking into possibly giving him the go-ahead to travel to Canada this week for a previously-scheduled performance there, before he hands down a final verdict. Do yall they if it was me or you the judge would let us leave the country to go work?
