Young Buck's Home

Raided by

Shotgun-Toting Feds

8/3/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Young Buck's Tennessee home was just ransacked by several armed federal agents ... TMZ has learned -- and it was all over $300,000 in allegedly unpaid taxes.

According to Young's rep, IRS agents rolled up to the platinum-selling rapper's house in Nashville this morning to go on a repossession rampage over the alleged tax debt -- seizing assets like recording equipment, jewelry, furniture, his platinum wall plaques ... and even his kids' PlayStation.

The rep tells us, the feds in question were packing heat -- in the form of a shotgun -- and warned Buck not to interfere with the raid.

As for how he fell so far behind in debt, the former G-Unit member tells us, "This IRS situation came about because I trusted accountants, lawyers, and managers to handle my business for me while I focused on making music. From now on, I am going to stay on top of my own business."

Wow, never heard of the guy but, there must be more to this story for the Feds to go in armed and what seems unexpected. Why the hell aren't they going after Nick Cage. He's one I'd like to see behind bars. I say take all their belongings and lock 'em up. My husband and I made our IRS payments - no Geitner plan for us. baha

You people really do not get it. I make good money. I pay my taxes. One day the IRS showed up with no warning and took 90 percent of my pay check. Totally out of the blue. And it was taken because of a stupid dumbass accounting error from you guessed it....the IRS. They and the federal goverment are the worst organizations on the planet. If you don't get it, you will. At least I will of left this god for saken **** hole of a country by then.

boo hoo hoo always someone else's fault that the taxes didn't get paid. How about looking after your own business? I'm sure you had time since not many seem to have heard of you.

Doesn't matter if your accountant prepped your taxes dumb ass. It is your responsibility. Think about it moron. Everyone would do the same thing if you could get away with it dumb ****ing moron.

Get ready, people. The IRS is just one federal department that acts virtually outside the law. You and I are next. You may assume this guy's guilty as hell of something bad, but even though he's well-known, they'll walk in and destroy him. Not too long for you and I, and who will defend us? If you don't believe me, watch 'Freedom To Fascism' by Aaron Russo. He was a Hollywood director (made movies with Eddie Murphy) who got ticked off at some things he learned, then made that do***entary. A must-see; the IRS doesn't want you to know the truth!

Well,they say that 50 cent paid his taxes in 2008 but he owes him for that but here we are 2 years later and since Young Buck still hasn't paid his taxes,this was bound to happen.Pay your taxes people.........
