About Young Buck
David Darnell Brown, better known as Young Buck, is an American rapper, record producer and actor. He gained prominence as a member of G-Unit & UTP Playas and is currently leading his own record company Ca$hville Records. In 2012 David started serving his jail sentence for illegal gun possession. He is ought to be released by the end of 2013. As for a member of one of the most famous hip-hop groups, Young Buck net worth is quite petty. He currently holds assets worth some $300 thousand.
Inspired by his neighbor and friend Clay Cole, Young started rapping at the age of 12. When he heard his rhymes for the first time Young Buck got so jealous of Clay’s talent, he set himself a goal to become better than his friend or die trying. When Cole left to pursue his career in Florida, David started recording his first tracks. Soon he was offered to sign with Brian Baby Williams and his company. Bryan Williams, also known as Baby or Birdman, is a US rapper, record producer and entrepreneur. He forms one part of the duo Big Tymers and is responsible for finding the Cash Money Records. Compared to Baby’s fortune Young Buck net worth looks like pocket money.
This man currently holds assets worth $130 million. The two rappers did not found a common ground and Young left the label in 2000. Instead, he started a fruitful collaboration with a rapper Juvenile, formed a band UTP Playas and joined his partner’s label UTP Records. With this company Buck has released two albums: Born to Be a Thug and The Compilation, but neither was commercially successful, nor did it add much cash to Young Buck net worth.
While working with UTP Records David met 50 Cents, who offered him to leave UTP and join him on G-Unit. Young was glad to take this offer and in 2003 his first album with this band was released. The sales of Beg for Mercy once again proved that everything turns into gold with one touch of 50 Cent. It featured such hits as “Poppin’ Them Thangs”, “My Buddy”, “Stunt 101”, “Wanna Get to Know You” and “Smile”. The album sold nearly 380 copies during the week after its release, submitting only to Tupac: Resurrection and The Black Album by Jay-Z. During the following two weeks Beg for Mercy sold over 500 thousand copies more and eventually received 2xPlatinum certification from the Recording Industries Association of America, for selling over 2 million copies in the United States alone and shipping one million units to the rest of the world. How come Young Buck net worth is so low then? Well, according to the rapper himself, 50 Cent was not particularly eager to share the sales money…
