David Darnell Brown (born March 15, 1981), better known by his stage name Young Buck, is an American rapper who was signed to G-Unit Records and now Cashville Records. Buck is a former member of the New York City-based hip hop group G-Unit.
50 Cent gave Young Buck a feature on his commercially successful debut album "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" on the track "Blood Hound". After this, he appeared on G-Unit's debut album, "Beg for Mercy," which certified 2x Platinum. Young Buck then released his debut album, "Straight Outta Cashville," in 2004, with its follow-up, "Buck the World" being released in 2007.
On April 7, 2008 in an interview with Miss Jones on New York's Hot 97, 50 Cent stated that Young Buck was no longer a member of the group G-Unit but was still signed to G-Unit Records. After Young Buck was dismissed from the group, he began to slander the name "G-Unit" in numerous different ways. He released numerous tracks attacking not only the group, but their associates and, more specifically, group leader 50 Cent. 50 Cent and G-Unit also responded with many tracks.
After a lengthy battle between Young Buck and his former G-Unit comrades, the feud seemed to settle down, with Young Buck stating that he owed one more album for G-Unit Records which was released in 2009, titled "The Rehab."
