According to Celebrity Net Worth, Young Buck as an estimated net worth of $100,000 as of 2021.
His rapping journey began when he was just 12 years old. A few years later, he performed for the co-founder of Cash Money Records named Brian Baby Williams. In 1995, he signed a contract with Cash Money. After signing a contract with the label, Young Buck toured with Birdman.
Unfortunately, the rapper decided to leave Cash Money Records as he never appeared on a Cash Money album after five years and move to UTP Records, the one that was founded by rapper Juvenile. Shortly after joining the new label, he also joined the rap group of Juvenile named UTP Playas. With the rap group, he dropped the album entitled The Compilation in 2002. In the same year, he also served a solo album named Born to Be a thug.
A year later, Young Buck left the rap group and the label. At the time, he joined G-Unit and G-Unit Records. In the same year the rapper joined the group and the record, the group made its debut by releasing a studio album called Beg for Mercy. The album peaked #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified 2x Platinum. Following the success with his group, Young Buck dropped the solo album entitled Straight Outta Cashville. This one included the singles such as Let Me In (feat. 50 Cent), Shorty Wanna Ride, and Look at Me Now (feat. Mr. Porter). Just like the album with his group, his solo album also received Platinum. Three years later, he released another solo album named Buck the World and a year after that, he and his group dropped T.O.S (Terminate on Sight). A few months before this album dropped, 50 Cent stated that Young Buck was not a part of G-Unit anymore. This was due to his inconsistent behavior. Then, the audio of a phone call was shared by 50 Cent. In the audio, the voice of Young Buck could be heard. He was crying and asking for 50 Cent to allow him back into the group. As his request was rejected, Young Buck released a few diss track about 50 cent and his former group, G-Unit. As his contract with G-Unit Records was not over, he was not allowed to drop anything. In 2012, he revealed that he was no longer under that label and he officially left the label as his contract ended.
Two years after his contract with G-Unit Records ended, Young Buck reunited with his former group, G-Unit. The group made an appearance on the Eps The Beauty of Independence and The Beast Is G-Unit.
