Young Buck sought for Vibe Music Awards stabbing
NOVEMBER 17--It's nice to be wanted, but not like this: Santa Monica police are looking for the rapper Young Buck in connection with a stabbing during Monday night's taping of the Vibe Music Awards. The 23-year-old performer (real name: David Darnell Brown) is facing a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly trying to knife a man who had earlier punched rapper/producer Dr. Dre (real name: Andre Young). Brown, a Nashville native, is a member of 50 Cent's G-Unit posse, which is affiliated with Dr. Dre and his protégé, Eminem. According to cops, a videotape of the Vibe melee shows Brown "lunging over another male and swinging the knife" at his intended victim. As the below Nashville Police Department mug shot attests, Brown has previously been the subject of law enforcement scrutiny, with his rap sheet showing a couple of drug arrests, as well as busts for domestic assault and driving without a license.
