Young Buck Biography

Young Buck Biography

Young Buck started rapping at the age of 12. It was not until the age of fourteen that he started recording in the studio. Although he was in the studio, recording, he was also well known on the streets because he used to deal drugs in his neighborhood.

The older drug dealers then gave him the nickname, "Young Buck", due to the fact that although he was dealing drugs at an early age he was also making money. Brian "Baby" Williams spotted Young Buck at the age of sixteen having a rap battle and took on the young rapper. It was not long before Buck left high school and was recording along with the rest of the Cash Money Crew. Juvenile and Young Buck left Cash Money at the same time. Young Buck joined UTP Records whilst Juvenile was trying to work out a deal with Suge Knight but Juvenile had legal problems and had to leave before they could finish the deal. Young Buck would later sign with G-Unit.

After Young Buck helped Juvenile secure cars for his video "Ha", he headed back home. It was not long until he was in a tight situation. One man came through where Young Buck was dealing drugs and shot the rapper two times. Buck recalled:

    "Motherfucker come kick in my door, 4, 5 in the morning. I was laying in the middle of the floor. He came standing on top of me with AK or a Mac something. I ain’t had no gun so I got my ass off the floor and ran towards the kitchen. It just so happen one of my homeboys, he was awake; he pushed the guy back up out the door. I got shot twice. One of them damned near blew my arm off and another caught me in my upper leg, in my thigh. I had so much illegal shit in the house at the time I rode around for 45 minutes to an hour before I even went to the hospital. I damned near lost my life from bleeding so much."

G-Unit was founded when childhood friends, Lloyd Banks, 50 Cent and Tony Yayo decided to make a group with each other. They met Young Buck when Cash Money Records artists came to New York and 50 Cent heard Young Buck rapping. After 50 Cent signed his contract with Aftermath Entertainment, Young Buck joined the group.

50 Cent gave Young Buck a feature on his successful debut Get Rich or Die Tryin' album on the track "Blood Hound". After this, he appeared on G-Unit's debut album, Beg for Mercy, which went on to be certified 2x Platinum. Young Buck then released his debut album.
