First the IRS seized rapper Young Buck‘s possessions, then they kicked him out of his mansion earlier this month, and now he is headed for jail. According to TMZ, Young Buck will now have to do 18 months in prison for gun possession.
It appears that after Young Buck, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, neglected to pay his taxes and accumulated a whopping bill that amounted to more than $300,000, the feds raided his home in October 2010.
When the feds entered the performer’s home in an effort to collect some of the debt, they found an unexpected surprise: firearms and ammunition, which is a definite no-no for a convicted felon. Now, the 31-year-old will reportedly have to serve jail time for his oversight.
A court document states that the government intruders uncovered a .40 caliber Glock 22 with ammunition. The law clearly states that anyone who has been convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year is barred from possessing a gun.

Besides recently losing his home, Young Buck managed to avoid getting hit in a drive-by shooting in March, where his vehicle was riddled with bullets. Although he was unharmed, his girlfriend, Kenyetta Rainey, was struck in the shoulder. Young Buck also filed for bankruptcy in 2010.
Young Buck won’t be formally sentenced until July 13th.
