Former G-Unit member Young Buck recently discussed his stint behind bars and named two key high-profile hip-hop artists which kept in constant contact throughout the bid.
According to Buck Marley, Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz and fellow Tennessee native Drumma Boy made sure to reach out during his sentence.
“I spoke to 2 Chainz a lot,” Buck revealed. “That’s my brother. I got a lot of respect for 2 Chainz. He always checked in and made sure I was one hundred. Of course Drumma Boy. That’s my brother from another mother. For the most part, those were the main two guys. I didn’t really hear from nobody. I used to be tuned-in when some of these motherf*ckers would come across ‘106 & Park’ like, ‘God d*mnit, I know this n*gga’s gonna holla Free Buck’ – and I don’t know if they forgot about me or if I wasn’t on their mind at the time. … It is what it is. I ain’t got no ill will against a lot of these dudes out here that I’ve been amongst and sh*t like that.” (Shade 45)
Buck also said he stayed in contact with fellow hip-hop inmates like B.G. and Lil Boosie.
“I didn’t really get a lot of calls. My Outlawz dudes, of course, but they’re family,” Buck added. “[Rap Coalition founder] Wendy Day, I got a lot of love for her, she stayed in touch and kept me up-to-date with as much as she could far as what’s going on and sh*t like that. I used to speak to Big Meech a lot, through the letters and things like that, me and B.G. stayed in contact a lot as well as Boosie. He’s about to touch down and do his thing.” (Shade 45)
Buck broke the news of his jail release via his Twitter page last October.
“I’m officially a free man!!!,” Buck tweeted October 1.

According to recent reports, Buck Marley was expected to get his first taste of freedom on October 1.
Yo its been way too long since we have heard some new material from the Cashville, Tennessee native wordsmith, Young Buck. But that is about to change, as word came down today that Young Buck is about to be a free man once again. Word on the E-streets, and coming out of Buck’s camp is that the former G-Unit lyricist will be released from prison on October 1st, 2013; which is right around the corner. This is definitely good news for the fans of Buck that have been patiently waiting some new material, and great news for the wordsmith himself. Mark your calendars and prepare to welcome Young Buck home on October 1st! (Stupid Dope)
