Young Buck’s Music To Be Auctioned Off Next Month


(AllHipHop News) Nashville, Tennessee rapper Young Buck will lose the rights to his back catalogue this May, as part of his bankruptcy liquidation.

Young Buck’s intellectual-property will be put up for sale on May 14, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The trademarks, copyrights, licenses and royalties for Young Buck’s catalog will be auctioned off at Nashville-based law firm of Harwell Howard Hyne Gabbert & Manner.

Young Buck was forced to file bankruptcy in 2010, after piling up a $300,000 debt to the IRS.

He has also been locked in a contractual dispute with G-Unit Records, which has shelved all releases by the rapper.

Young Buck was kicked out of G-Unit in 2008, although he was still signed to the label with a $171,000 debt.

During Young Buck’s bankruptcy proceedings, 50 Cent filed a $10 million breach of contract lawsuit against the Nashville rapper, preventing him from releasing material on any other label.

The sale of Young Buck’s intellectual-property will complete his bankruptcy filing and allow him to exit Chapter 7 bankruptcy, although he may also lose the rights to use the “Young Buck” moniker.

    damn sounds like fif really set this guy up to win and he still failed … i know buck is feeling regrets like a mofo …. i heard of artist selling all of thier thangs, houses cars etc …. but never having the option or the abillity to sell thier back catalog ….. buck actually had the rights and masters to his recordings ???????? i mean in light of the tradegy of him having the sell this stuff ……… the fact that he had it to sell is major ……. if he continued to build instead of destroying his career with the demons he was dealing with …. he would had owner ship  of all of his music and could have lived off it for years to come or eventually sold it for a profit if his popularity shot thru the roof …… damn …….

    Man… bad moves on Young Bucks part…to lose your catalog…Name…trademarks and copyrights, …you are no longer yourself. Everything he built he lost it…gave it away. Pay your taxes & surround yourself with people that have your best interest at heart. I guess the next move for Mr. Cash-ville is to hold a press conference and tell us his new name!

    Black Exodus “Problems” new song on youtube…check it out
