Let Young Buck Get Things Going Proper This Weekend
Hit up The Sets to see Young Buck's set this Friday -- you won't regret it
Sometimes a show falls through the cracks that deserves more coverage in the 'Nix. It's no one's fault in particular -- it can be a tough task to be on top of every single noteworthy show that comes to The Valley. Such is the case for this Friday night as I had to dig through some stuff to see that Nashville rapper Young Buck will be gracing Tempe's The Sets with his presence. It shocked me to see a big name like Buck tucked away at the relatively small venue -- and it also showed me that some light needs to be shed on Young Buck appearing in The Valley.
Young Buck has three albums to his name, 2004's Straight Outta Cashville and 2007's Buck The World with his self-released album T.I.P. being released in 2005. Both Cashville and Buck were released on 50 Cent's G-Unit label, with Cashville featuring the hits "Shorty Wanna Ride" and "Stomp." Both songs were featured on Brooklyn electronic duo Ratatat's 2007 remix album Remixes Vol. II -- my first introduction to Buck's smooth, infectious rhyming style.
