Young Buck Is Going to Rehab
Instead of landing jail time, Young Buck will have to go to rehab. TMZ reports that Buck must complete a treatment program, 100 hours of community service and pay a $7.5k fine. On Monday (Aug. 28) the Cashville, Tennessee rapper was busted by his probation officer for attempting to fake his urine test. The P.O. caught the rapper trying transfer a plastic bag full of somebody else’s clean urine through a tube into a sample cup. Falsifying a court-ordered drug test is a felony and punishable by up to five years in jail. Soon after news broke that the G-Unit member could face serious jail time, his lawyer Scott Leemon quickly quieted those rumors.
“I am glad that Judge Campbell agreed with our joint recommendation that Buck be sentenced to probation, a fine, community service and drug treatment,” said Leemon. ”This was a fair result, most importantly, because Buck was spared any prison time and permitted to get back on the road to perform and make new music. In fact, he went right from court to go meet 50 on his Effen vodka tour.”
Buck announced his Ten-A-Key mixtape series with plans to drop nine new mixtapes in nine months. He already released DJ Whoo Kid-hosted 10 Bullets in April. He followed that up with 10 Bricks in late May and a few loosies in July. With more music presumably coming out this year, fans can rest easy knowing Buck isn’t going back to prison.
