Former G-Unit rapper Young Buck is facing federal charges for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

According to Nashville’s WSMV, the indictment unsealed Monday read that Young Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, is being charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a .40-caliber pistol and ammunition.

Federal authorities say all this happened on or around August 3rd 2010, and that was roughly the same time the rapper’s Nashville home was raided due to delinquent taxes.

In court Young Buck pleaded not guilty to the charges, and was released on bond. According to the terms of his release, he must give up his passport, but due to upcoming show in Canada, the judge is permitting him to post $100,000 bond by Friday to get his passport back.

Young Buck, if convicted on charges is facing 10 years in a federal prison.
