  • Feb 19 - [Interview] Young Buck: A Lesson in Black History

    What does it mean to be Black in America in 2007? The past year watched Sean Bellís murder and Michael Richardsí rant prove that White on Black racism in America is very much alive. But in certain lights, things are a changiní. For instance, some project that Young Buckís Buck the World album could certify the rapper as the biggest music star in Nashville - Nashville.

    In a city with racism in its history, is Buckís ďCashvilleĒ nickname an attack that would stifle Elvisí appetite or make Johnny Cash walk the line? As the tattooed G-Unit star open stores, shoots films, and gives jobs to his city, is revolution occurring? You can decide, as Young Buck, soon to release a highly anticipated album discusses Black History on local and national levels, and as his reputation indicates, itís ďBy any means necessary.Ē

    AllHipHop.com: Being raised in Nashville, and being a parent yourself, does it trip you out that they honor people like [Confederate Civil War Hero and Ku Klux Klan founding-member] Nathan Bedford Forrest?

    Young Buck: Yeah, thereís some wild s**t out here. You know exactly how it goes with that racist s**t down here.

    AllHipHop.com: In line with that, as Black History Month approaches, can you remember someone that was influential in your life?

    Young Buck: I consider my uncle in the penitentiary one of the most [influential] political prisoners that Iíve seen in my life. His name is L.T. and I get a lot of the knowledge that I have from him. Heís sitting in the penitentiary doing life. Heís the biggest political prisoner that I know and he keeps me up on things. Heís my uncle and he shot down a police helicopter down here in J.C. Napier, in the projects, I donít know if youíve heard about that. They gave him life and s**t, but he really changed me as far as looking at the broader picture.

    I look at people like Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, Angela Davis and folks like that. I like soldiers. I believe in Martin Luther Kingís message up until the part about turning the other cheek. In this era, turning the other cheek will get you knocked out. Back then you mightíve been able to turn the other cheek and just walk away with a bruise, and back then it was probably a good message. People like Huey P. Newton and Angela Davis had issues with the government going against them. There are lot of the different political motherf**kers that I pay attention to.

    Believe it or not, Tupac Shakur and Muhammad Ali, those are all political motherf**kers. I come from the 2Pac and Biggie era. A n***a just 25 [years old], so for me, thatís where I kind of locked in and really started to learn music. Iíve heard them allóN.W.A., D-Nice and Kool Moe Dee when I was young. I was just hearing them, but I actually learned about the music through 2Pac and s**t like that because I was coming of age during that time. Everything from ďWhen My Homies CallĒ to ďBrendaís Got A BabyĒ was made when I was becoming a young man and understanding what life was all about. ĎPac was one of the realest n***as weíve ever seen on the face of this earth when it comes to this rap s**t.

    AllHipHop.com: Those statements contradict many peopleís opinions about you. I think you managed to change a lot of peopleís minds when you walked through that door marked ďIlluminatiĒ in the ďStompĒ video.

    Young Buck: [Laughing] What you know about that, right? I just know that they are the real f**kiní gangsters. Itís some wild s**t, man. The politics of America is all f**ked up. Thatís why Iím quick to tell a motherf**kaí , ďBefore we start worrying about racism and Black and White, we all need to come together because Bush is gonnaí get us all before this s**t is over with if we arenít careful.Ē

    AllHipHop.com: Thatís some revolutionary talk. I think a lot of people hear you calling yourself ďBuck MarleyĒ and assume itís only a reference to smoking marijuana.

    Young Buck: Yeah, they really do. What they donít understand is that the cat is way over here on this political movement. I find myself a lot of the time paying attention to stuff I donít know about just to find out about it. I find myself even just looking at this stock market, even though I donít know what the f**k it is. But, if I look at it so much Iíll start to realize what it really is. Thatís pretty much how I catch on to a lot of different things. I educated myselfóI dropped out of school in the ninth grade. The streets were calling too much, and as I was trying to chase that school never was a part of me. The way a n***a thinks and the knowledge I got you would think a n***a damn near made it through college, cuzz. Itís just about gameóthatís why a n***a could never tell me you have to have a diploma or this or that in order to be successful.

    Itís just about being open enough to be able to receive information. As long as you stay in what I call sponge mode, then you can soak up every f**kiní thing from everybody. I had to raise myself out here. Thatís what my reality was, and thatís what got me to where Iím at. I donít even know where my father is at now. Straight up and down, Iíve got a reality show coming out on MTV thatís already signed sealed and delivered. The title is Buck The World, and itís going to be released around the same time as my album. Thatís something to stay focused on. Iíve got a big movie that Iím shooting down here in Cashville in the next two or three weeks. Itís gonnaí be about my life, and weíre releasing the first one straight to DVD. Weíll see after this one, but once itís finished theyíll see that I am the f**kiní man in Nashville. If yíall thought Wesley Snipes and all those motherf**kaís were tough, just wait. Iím going to get to the money, but Iím going to show them the skills first.

    My biggest fear is going back to where I came from. Iíll be damned if I get a little bit of paper and then say, ďAlright, Iím through.Ē Yíall n****s are gone have to kill me with a mic in my hand! Iím Godís best friend. Iím that n***a thatís sitting right next to God. When a n***a get up to those gates Iíve got the power to tell God, ďLook, let him in,Ē or say, ďF**k Ďem, send him on back down.Ē So n****s be cool with me, I got this. Iím good.
