Young Buck has decided to set aside his financial problems with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and continue making music for his fans' sake.

Recently, Buck also promised to straighten out his contractual obligations with ex-associate and current owner to his publishing rights, 50 Cent.
"It's on the way," Buck said about his next official album when we caught up with him recently in Houston. "The music speaks for itself. I'm everywhere when it comes to online -- I throw music out. People are already aware of my situation ... the whole fight with the contract thing. It's about to get real, real interesting, people. I will say that much...If you ain't focused on Buck, now is the time to get focused on Buck," he continued. "With this whole contract situation, we really gonna see what this was really about. Y'all mark my words: I'll be back to MTV to finish this when it all ends. At the end of the day, I appreciate the people that's sticking right there through the fight I'm going through as far as my contract situation." (MTV)
Earlier this week, Buck had his Tennessee home raided by federal agents.
Armed feds reportedly raided the home of rapper Young Buck on Tuesday because he allegedly owes more than $300,000 in unpaid taxes. IRS agents carrying a shotgun warned the performer not to interfere as they turned his Nashville home inside-out seizing assets that included recording equipment, jewelry, and his kids' PlayStation.

Following the incident, Buck accepted responsibility for what took place.
The rapper doesn't deny failing to pay Uncle Sam. "This IRS situation came about because I trusted accountants, lawyers, and managers to handle my business for me while I focused on making music," Buck told TMZ. "From now on, I am going to stay on top of my own business." Sounds like a good plan, Buck. (The Boom Box)
