The guy is looking to sell his rap name to get him over his bankruptcy hump.
According to The Tennessean newspaper, the 30-year-old rapper is being forced to sell his trademarked name, “Young Buck” along with some other assets.

He filed Chapter 11 back in 2010, but Judge George C. Paine II signed an order to change it to a Chapter 7 liquidation.
“My name, Young Buck, has been with me since I was 12, 13 years old,” Buck stated. “At the end of the day, it’s ridiculous. My name wasn’t given to me by G-Unit Records. They didn’t name me Young Buck. My mother calls me Young Buck.”
However, the trademark and other intellectual property rights belong to the bankruptcy estate so they can be liquidated to pay creditors and notified Cash Money’s attorney of that position. The move would prevent any artist or label from using the trademark without the trustee’s approval, which probably would require a consideration of the outstanding debts owed to Buck’s creditors.
Buck, born David Darnell Brown, has been in a legal dispute with the record label since 2008, draining him of all he’s got.
