Young Buck - Is He About the Music Or the Insults?

Young Buck, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, is a rapper in the United States. He at one time was a member of G-Unit, which was a hip hop group based out of New York City. He has been signed to labels like G-Unit, Cashville, and Interscope.

Truly a young talent, Young Buck began rapping when he was only 12 years old, and by the time he was 14, he was in recording studios. He was "discovered" when he was 16 by "Baby" Williams and soon would leave high school and start out recording with Cash Money. From then he went on to UTP Records, and later signed with G-Unit.

To date, Young Buck has already released two albums - Straight Outta Cashville, and Buck the World. It is reported that he is working on another album currently as well, although no release date for it has been given. Some of the well known artists that have appeared in his albums include 50 Cent, Ludacris, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, Young Jeezy, and many others.

Although it is clear that Young Buck has some great talent, since 2004 he has been involved in a lot of controversies, making one wonder if he is all about the music or all about insults. In fact, one incident occurred at the VIBE Awards in 2004, where he allegedly stabbed Jimmy James Johnson in the chest, after a brawl broke out between Dr. Dre, Johnson, and several police officers. However, Young Buck was never convicted.

There have since been many incidents where Young Buck has thrown insults, using his music to do so. For some time there was a feud between Young Buck and The Game. The Game ended up being kicked out of G-Unit, and The Game went on to release a track that insulted Young Buck. Young Buck hit back with the track known as "The Real Bitch Boy," which threw back the insults. Many tracks have gone back and forth as both artists use their music to insult each other.

That wasn't the only time where Young Buck used his music to hurl insults at others either. One song he released name "Off Parole" was directly insulting to Lil Wayne, and he has since released "Personal," which was insulting Terror Squad and DJ Khaled.

Young Buck was later kicked out of G-Unit by 50 Cent, and Young Buck went on to release slander songs on the internet against the group, although the other camp hit back with slander sons of their own.

For the past five years, there have been many incidents of Young Buck using music to throw insults at other artists. Although the man definitely has talent and is an excellent rapper, it is sad that he uses his music to be an outlet for his "beefs" with other artists. The question is will he continue this pattern his next album, or will he begin focusing more on his music instead of insults? That remains to be seen.
