Incarcerated rapper Young Buck's personal items have reportedly hit the eBay auctioning block with his former possessions starting at $300.
According to reports, Buck's listed gear ranges from clothing to a craps table.
Who wants a piece of Young Buck? eBay is making it possible to purchase items belonging to the embattled former G-Unit rapper, who began serving an 18-month prison sentence on weapons charges back in August. Amongst Buck's personal items up for sale are his brown Live Mechanics leather coat, a 4XL Artful Dodger Cutter Lads coat, a Bachrach pinstripe suit and a full craps table. The first three items have a starting bid listed at $300, while the craps table has a starting bid of $4,000. Coincidentally, the seller of the items--Vintagemusicgear--is known for selling music recording equipment and items belonging to artists. These items are believed to come from the IRS auction of Buck's personal items, after the rapper filed for bankruptcy. The auction brought in $53,000 this past July. (XXL Mag)

Last month, Buck Marley gave fans an update on his living condition behind bars.
"Man, sh*t man, let eveybody know that I'm good. I'm 100. I'm well taken care of. I'm straight, under the circumstances I'm in. This is prison, you know what I'm saying? At the end of the day, I'm making the best out of prison. I don't even like to call it prison. I call it Chain Gang College now. I'm handling it, I'm handling lt like a real man gotta handle it. There ain't no other way once you're back here. Either you do the time or let the time do you. I choose to do my time, you know what I'm saying? I stay out the way, I got a couple good brothers I do roll with, they my partners. Other than that, sh*t, I'm doing time. You feel me?" (Back On My Buck Sh*t)
The rapper is reportedly serving out his time in a Mississippi prison.
From behind the prison gates, Young Buck got on the phone with his friend Charlie P for a quick check-in and freestyle. Buck seems like he's in good spirits and sounds sharp on this short rhyme he let loose. Currently, he's serving 18-months for weapons possession in Yazoo City Medium Security Federal Prison in Southern Mississippi. (Miss Info TV)
