Tuesday, May 22, 2012 9:13AM
After the breaking news of a pending jail sentence for rapper Young Buck surfaced last weekend, new reports now reveal the reason why and just how long he could find himself behind bars.
According to reports, Buck is staring down over a year in jail for a gun-related charge.
Rapper Young Buck agreed a plea deal with prosecutors to serve 18 months in jail after an IRS raid on his Nashville home in 2010. The "Taking Hits" rapper -- real name David Darnell Brown -- agreed to plead guilty to possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon, TMZ reported. According to legal documents, IRS agents recovered firearms at his home when they went to repossess belongings over an unpaid $300,000 tax debt. They found a .40 caliber Glock 22, along with bullets. Young Buck was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon after he stabbed someone at the Vibe Awards in 2004. As a result, he was prohibited from possessing any firearms. The rapper will be formally sentenced July 13. (My Fox)
