IRS Raids Rapper’s Home


The IRS field agents in Tennessee raided rapper Young Buck?s home in an attempt to recover $300,000 in taxes. The entertainer, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, had earlier filed court motions to put his assets out of reach of the IRS but the IRS agents had acted nonetheless. They confiscated Brown's recording equipment, his platinum wall plaques, jewelry, furniture and even his children's Playstation.

In a statement, Brown said, “The worst part of this isn't the material stuff — that will all be replaced. It's what it does to the people around me. They took my kids' PlayStation, my assistants' computers, and my baby's mothers' jewelry. They took my home studio so I can't even record.”

After complaining about how the IRS had taken his "baby?s mother's jewelry?, Brown started to pass the buck (no pun intended) on to his support team. According to him, he entrusted his finances to his lawyers, accountants and managers and did not concern himself with these matters, which resulted in his tax delinquency. The rapper has since replaced his support team and is "paying full attention now? according to his statement.
