Nashville rapper Young Buck is facing up to 10 years in prison on a weapons charge.

Buck, whose actual name is David Darnell Brown, was in federal court Monday, during which he appeared before Magistrate Judge Joe Brown. Brown is charged with the possession of a pistol, a shotgun and ammunition. He pleaded not guilty.

Brown is free on a $100,000 bond. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. 

Brown pleaded no contest after a 2004 incident during which he allegedly stabbed a man at the VIBE music awards show in California. Under the terms of the plea, he is not allowed to carry any weapons.

Glenn R. Funk, Brown’s attorney, declined comment.

In the past, Brown has battled problems with both the IRS involving back taxes and with noted rapper 50 Cent regarding a contract dispute. 

He was charged Aug. 3, 2010, for weapons possession following an IRS raid of his property.

@newyorker1, how is this racism? he broke the law by not paying his taxes, and then further broke the law by possessing weapons when he was legally forbidden to do so. it doesn't matter what color your skin, don't mess with the irs.

Because, blacks should be exempt from these laws and the IRS. Haven't we suffered enough?

NewYorker1 is correct. The man is always messing with the brothers.
Free Young Buck!

It's because the brothers don't pay up. You pay up, they leave you alone. This goes for all races.

GUARDIAN-NewYorker1 has fallen out of his tree today and can't get up. That's what happens when you're swinging around high up in the air tossing race cards at anyone stupid enough to take it. NewYorker1, F.Y.I. The only thing race cards are good for these days is wiping your tail. :)

He's a (C)RAPPER, what did you expect? They all think the same way, and don't tell me they don't. I've seen them all act the same way! Give him LIFE!!! I still say what they NEED to do is take "ALL" streetgangs and wanna be's and (C)RAPPERS who want to act like they're a streetgang IDIOT and put them in a BIG round room made of marble walls and NO WAY for them to get out. Give them all AK's and let them KILL each other till they're ALL dead!!! Then we don't have to worry about them ANYMORE!!!

I have never detected any envy of anything you have or more than likely, don't have from anyone! All you ever offer is racist crap.
