IRS To Auction a Bunch of Young Buck's Possessions on Thursday, July 26

Watch for sale.
  • Watch for sale.
Precisely two years ago, multi-platinum recording artist David Darnell Brown (known to most of us as Young Buck) was gracing the cover of the Scene, talking about his beef with friend-turned-foe and G Unit honcho 50 Cent — and 50 was reading all about it. Shortly thereafter, however, Buck filed for bankruptcy. He's been plagued with legal troubles ever since, eventually being charged with tax evasion and recently being sentenced to 18 months in prison on federal weapons charges. It just hasn't been Buck's decade.

Well, doling out a bit of insult on top of all that injury, the IRS will auction several of the troubled rapper's former possessions on Thursday, July 26, at 460 Metroplex Dr. As you can see in this ad/register of items, goods including Young Buck's Bentley watch, 615 Cashville Records cross necklace, a console and other recording equipment, a "Ten-a-Key Watch With Black Leather Band & Diamond Face" and a Titans-themed vending machine will be up for sale. The fact that some framed local press clippings are among the loot almost just seems like intentional salt in the wound, am I right? In addition to the proper sale — which begins Thursday at 10 a.m. in Suite 205 of the aforementioned address — there will be an open house from noon until 5 p.m. on July 25 and from 8 until 10 a.m. on July 26.

Anyway, according to Tune in Music City, creditors have submitted claims totaling $11.5 million, and the trustee administering Buck's estate says she intends to "sell the trademarked 'Young Buck' name." Wow. Even selling the dude's name. Take a dude's jazz-themed art and even his Titans drink machine, but at least leave him with his name. In absolute seriousness though, I want that drink machine.
