David Darnell Brown, who goes by the stage name Young Buck, is a well-known rapper in the American music scene. He used to be in the groups G-Unit and UTP Playas. Now, he runs his own record label, Cashville Records, and is in charge of it. Buck, which is how most people call him, got into music at a young age. When he saw how good his friend Clay Cole was at rapping, he was impressed and wished he could do it too. As soon as he got good at what he did, he began rapping for a studio. During this time, Cash Money Records gave him an opportunity to perform. Before he went to work for UTP Records, he worked for the recording company for a few years. This was the start of his long and successful career, during which he put out several important records and albums. He then joined the group 50 Cents, which brought him a lot of attention for both good and bad reasons. He has his own record label now and is looking forward to repairing his relationship with G-Unit.
Early years and childhood
Young Buck was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 15, 1981. His name at the time was David Darnell Brown.
Because his friend Clay Cole was so good at rapping, young Brown decided to do it for a living. His main goal was to beat his friend Cole, and he was willing to do anything to do it.
Young Buck’s Career
Clay moved to Tallahassee, Florida, so Buck started making recordings in studios. He had just turned 14 at the time. Two years later, he got his first chance to perform for Brian “Baby” Williams, who helped start Cash Money Records.
Then, he went on a world tour with Birdman and did several shows with him. Even though he was signed to the label, he was never on any of their albums. Also, he didn’t put out a song of his own on the label.
After a few years with Cash Money Records, he and rapper Juvenile left in 2004 to join Juvenile’s label, UTP records. He also joined the rap group UTP Playas.
“Straight Outta Cashville,” his first studio album, came out in 2004. Music fans liked the album a lot, and it reached the top of the charts and sold more than 2.3 million copies around the world. The Recording Industry Association of America said that it was a platinum record.
He first met New York rapper 50 Cent when he worked for UTP Records. 50 Cent later offered him a job at G-Unit Records, which is part of Interscope Records. ‘Born to Be a Thug’ and ‘The Compilation with UTP’ were the two independent albums he put out while he was at UTP Records.
In 2003, he made the album “Beg for Mercy” with the group “G-Unit.” The album’s first week on the market was slow, but in its second week, it reached its highest point on the Billboard 200, at number 2. The album has sold more than 6 million copies around the world, and the RIAA has said that it is two times platinum.
He left UTP Records in 2005. The rapper 50 Cent had made quite a name for himself with his G-Unit group. He wanted to grow his business, so he invited him to join G-Unit. In the same year, he put out an album with other artists called “GetRich or Die Tryin.”
“Buck the World,” his second studio album, came out in 2007. The album sold 141,083 copies in its first week, which put it at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
His relationship with 50 Cent and G-Unit was not always smooth, and there were many fights between them. After he was kicked out of the group, he put out several songs that were bad about 50 Cent, G-Unit, and the people who worked with them. Soon after, the second one did the same thing and put out multiple tracks and a recorded phone call, which the first one said were fakes.
Since he had a fight with G-Unit, he has had trouble with his money and was recently the target of a drive-by shooting in his hometown.
In 2010, he put out an independent album called “The Rehab.” It was a street album and, according to Real Talk Ent., it was his third official album. In the first week, only 7,000 copies of the album were sold. It’s his last album as of now.
In 2012, he said that the problems with G-Unit were over and that he was looking forward to negotiations that would lead to a united front.

He got married to Tanee McCall in the year 2002. The next year, they were blessed with a daughter named Jayla.
