Former G-Unit member Young Buck has announced he is headed to prison for at least 60 days, but withholds key details.
Buck announced the breaking news through a video clip this weekend.
"I got to go to the penitentiary for two months," Buck revealed in a video. "F*ck with me for real, hold me down -- and when I get out of the penitentiary, all you rap n*ggas better get the f*ck out the way. I ain't even gonna say no names, but it's a good thing I'm about to go to the penitentiary." ("Back On My Buck Sh*t")
Last year, Buck Marley made headlines after getting arrested on a gun possession charge.
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 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. (WSMV News)
Recently, the Southern rapper hinted at his G-Unit contractual requirements possibly coming to an end.
"I'ma be honest with y'all. Right now, finally, we're having some kind of negotiations with what we'll be able to do as far as the G-Unit situation. So y'all will be the first ones to hear but I'm able to tell you the wait is over. It's definitely over. I don't want to put a time limit on it, but the wait is absolutely over, and we're just trying to figure out what's the best situation for us far as where am I gonna go. I don't think I'm going to be able to complete the last few albums I have on G-Unit. But hey, at the end of the day, it is what it is. The past is the past and we're living in the present."

A few weeks ago, Buck said he wanted to get back on speaking terms with G-Unit.
"It's been a long time since I've had any kind of conversation with [Lloyd] Banks, [Tony] Yayo, 50 [Cent], anybody really through that camp over that way," Buck told DJ Whoo Kid in an interview. "It's been even a long time since I heard your voice to even have a conversation and we having it on air, live for the people. ... At the end of the day, we've made history and I would never not consider not being a chance for us to make history again if ever given the opportunity or chance. My thing is, at the end of the day, we only get older out here in this situation, in life, in itself and the older I became, the wiser I became at the same time." (Shade 45)
