Despite being a platinum-selling rapper reppin' Tennessee, former G-Unit member Young Buck recently encountered trouble in his hometown, claiming he was shot at over ten times Sunday morning (March 4).

According to reports, the shooting took place on Sunday in the rapper's Tennessee hometown.

50 Cent's former G-Unit bandmate, real name David Brown, was driving in Nashville, Tennessee when an unidentified gunman passed by in a white Chevrolet and opened fire on Buck's SUV, hitting it 11 times. Young Buck and a second passenger both escaped unharmed, according to local police, who have launched an investigation into the shooting. The troubled rapper had spent the night before filming a new video and hosting a cookout for fans. (London Free Press)

Although Buck Marley was unharmed, a female passenger accompanying him suffered a gunshot wound.

A bullet grazed the shoulder of Kenyetta Rainey early Sunday morning while she was riding in a Cadillac Escalade driven by her boyfriend, the rapper Young Buck, whose real name is David Brown. The incident occurred in East Nashville on Interstate 24 near the Shelby Avenue exit around 3 a.m. Brown told police he and his girlfriend had just been in a heated argument inside South Nashville's La Bamba nightclub. Club security stepped in to stop the argument, he said, so he and Rainey left to go to their home in Hendersonville. Brown took Rainey to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she was treated and released. He was not injured. Nor was a second man in the Escalade. (Tennessean)

The rapper's latest tweet focused on him celebrating with an open cookout a day prior.

"#CookOut at my Studio!! Steaks,Burgers,Chicken,Shrimp,etc.... Every kinda #Liquor u can Imagine!! #Ball Come Thru!!," he tweeted Saturday (March 3). (Young Buck's Twitter)

No stranger to gun-related news, the rapper made headlines last year in a weapons case.

Back in March 2011, Buck (real name David Darnell Brown) was at the center of another gun-related controversy when he pleaded not guilty to felony gun possession charges after federal agents allegedly found a pistol and ammunition in his home. (E! Online)
