Former G-Unit member Young Buck is hard at work once again following a lenghty stint behind bars with the release of a new joint mixtape, Warrior Music.
Buck Marley and The Outlawz's new collaborative effort premiered online this week.
Former G-Unit member Young Buck links up with The Outlawz for a brand new 20-track project titled 'Warrior Music'. After hearing his Marvin Gaye-sampled track 'Rage' not too long ago, and now the rest of this project, it's clear that Buck still has what it takes to make good music.

Buck Marley's most recent post-jail music release surfaced across the Internet earlier this month.
Yesterday, Nashville rapper and G-Unit member Young Buck shared the news on Twitter that he had been released from prison, where he was serving an 18-month sentence on weapons charges. Today, he shared the striking animated video for "Rage," which channels some of his frustration about both his ongoing legal struggles and the broader American penal system over a Marvin Gaye sample. It's a hard track with some heavy lyrical commentary, like "Been working all these years just to get by/convicted felon so it's hard for me to get high/Border patrol been checking into big ties/Make it hard for Americans, so we turn to fire." But it's the video that really demands attention, showing a succession of black and white animations that up the lyrics' grim stakes. Beautifully assembled by Timo Albert and Karmo Ruusmaa, it's worth watching closely. (Complex)
Buck broke the news of his post-jail release via his Twitter page on October 1.
"I'm officially a free man!!!," Buck tweeted October 1.

Last year, Buck claimed he was thrown into solitary confinement for 60 days.
"Dear Fans, I was in the hole 4 the last 2 months, so it's been slow on the mail, so Im back to writing y'all this week! I appreciate y'all!," Buck tweeted November 24th. (Young Buck's Twitter)
Over the fall, reports surfaced and claimed Buck wanted his 18-month sentence nixed.
Nashville rapper Young Buck wants a federal court to toss out his prison sentence. The rapper, whose real name is David Brown, is currently in a Mississippi prison after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. However, he claims the 18-month prison term handed to him is a "complete miscarriage of justice." Brown claims he couldn't have been a felon in possession of a firearm, since a previous felony conviction was expunged from his record. Brown was also involved in a bankruptcy case that led to the IRS auction of thousands of dollars' worth of his belongings earlier this year. (News Channel 5)
