But if that’s not enough, the rapper is going to jail for two months.
“I got to go to the penitentiary in like two months. F— with me for real, hold me down,” he said in a recent video interview.

Buck didn’t say why he’s getting locked up. He was arrested in 2005 for gun possession and then again in 2007 for missing a court date related to a traffic violation.
“When I get out of the penitentiary, all you rap n—-s better get the f— out the way. I ain’t even gonna say no names, but it’s a good thing I’m about to go to the penitentiary,” he said.
*Scottie Pippen, according to TMZ, has filed multiple lawsuits against the media for supposedly unfairly portraying him as a financial mess. So every outlet, including CBSsports.com and CNBC.com, that reported he went bankrupt is going to pay.
The former athlete claims he hasn’t been worth less than $40,000,000 in the last 10 years, if you can believe that.
Pippen filed the suit in Illinois and claims that the named media outlets committed “foul libel” and falsely accused him of being bankrupt.
“Scottie never filed bankruptcy and indeed has a substantial net worth, which has not been less than approximately $40,000,000 in the last ten years.”
In a CNBC.com article, the athlete is featured as on of 15 athletes gone bankrupt.
Arizona State University’s publication was sited in the lawsuit as well. He claims that he was tagged as a person who had gone bankrupt in a law blog operated by the school.
For this “false” information and defamation of his reputation, Pippen is asking for at least $1 million in damages.
Sounds like a hissy fit and an excuse to take someone’s money.
*Young Buck is making a fuss after filing for bankruptcy. The Nashville rapper is now suing his former business associate 50 Cent and the whole G-Unit shebang, including its CEO Sha Money XL (nee Michael Clervoix) and G-Unit business manager Bruce Seckendorf.
He plans to demand $5 million to be released from his contract and for the money he supposes he would have made releasing solo material and appearing on tracks with other artists.
“Mr. Brown intends to reorganize his debts and pay off the IRS in a timely manner through Chapter 13,” said bankruptcy attorney Lynda Jones in a statement originally published in The Nashville City Paper. ‘We hope to secure the return of his personal property quickly. He will also be filing a lawsuit in the next 30-60 days against his former manager, G Unit label and Mr. Curtis Jackson.
“There are a few procedural hurdles we need to address in handling these matters, but they will ironed out shortly,” she continued. “I will be associating attorneys Amy Everhart and Jennifer Lawson for the litigation. Both have excellent experience.”
Buck is getting ready to release his third solo album, “Rehab” Sept. 7.
