Young Buck Gets Banned In Atlanta
Tennessee rapper Young Buck (David Darnell Brown) recently got himself banned from Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9. After performing on November 26th at Atlanta’s Club Nocturnal Young Buck is stated to have announced that he had some business to handle with DJ Will of Hot 107.9 who was deejaying before Young Buck performed. The cause of the stem was that DJ Will played The Game’s hit single “It’s Ok (One Blood)” earlier that evening. Sources state that Young Buck grabbed DJ Will by his shirt and even though DJ Will was outnumbered he bravely stood up to Young Buck and his entourage. Due to the incident the program director Jerry Smokin’ B of Hot 107.9 banned G-Unit rapper from the entire station’s playlist which may have an effect on his overall sales and airplay in that region.
Because of this Young Buck may have gotten himself into trouble not only due to him being on probation for an incident which occurred at the 2004 Vibe Awards, but also due to a relationship with BME Recordings that may sour since DJ Will is a part of BME.
This isn’t the first DJ altercation for G-Unit. Weeks ago The Game caused problems with another Hot 107.9 Atlanta DJ, King Arthur at an afterparty in which he had hosted after the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
At press time, representatives for both Interscope Records and Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 declined comment.
Young Buck has recently become the president of his newly created label imprint called Cashville Records known as G-Unit South.
