Young Buck was sentenced Friday to three years in prison after he was convicted on weapons charges.
Young Buck was arrested for possessing weapons despite being a convicted felon following a stabbing several years prior.
The judge sentenced the rapper to serve his two counts concurrently, so he will spend a total of 18 months in jail.
"With the judge not considering my history to subtract some time, I'm just thankful for what time I do have," Young Buck said.
Young Buck is also involved in a bankruptcy case after a contract dispute with record label G-Unit Records. Numerous pieces of gold and diamond jewelry once owned by the rapper will be auctioned by the IRS on July 26.
"I've had some rough times. I've been fighting the bankruptcy situation, and there were some court situations," he said.
