Earlier in the year, Def Sounds reported that Young Buck agreed to serve 18 months in prison on gun possession charges, following the 2010 raid of his Nashville home. At the time of the plea deal, a date for his formal sentencing was given.

The date for Young Buck’s sentencing was today, Friday, July 13th as the former G-Unit rapper appeared in a Nashville courtroom, and was sentenced to three years in prison for his conviction on weapons charges.

Although, Young Buck was sentenced to three years on two separate counts, the judge in his case is allowing him to serve his two counts concurrently, so he will only spend a total of 18 months in jail.

Young Buck thanked the judge for allowing the counts to run concurrently, as he said:

“With the judge not considering my history to subtract some time, I’m just thankful for what time I do have.”

During Young Buck’s sentencing, the judge said Buck must remain off drugs and will be subject to court-ordered supervision for three years after his release.

As of press time it us unsure if Young Buck had to turn himself in, but it seems as if he will start serving his bid at a later date. Def Sounds will keep you updated when that information is revealed.

Young Buck will still have one more month of freedom as he has to turn him self in on August 13th to begin serving his sentence.
