Young Buck is officially in the big house. The former G-Unit rapper began his 18-month prison sentence Monday (Aug. 6), reports TMZ.

For the next several months Buck’s home will be the Yazoo City Medium Security Federal Prison, located in Southern Mississippi. “My mindset moving forward is letting the past be the past,” Buck told XXL before beginning his prison stint. “Don’t judge me behind what you think I am or what you thought I did or none of that. Pay attention to Buck because the man that I was yesterday ain’t the man that I am today.”

The 31-year-old was sentenced to nearly two years for weapons possession, following a 2010 raid. Federal agents hit Buck’s house uncovering  weapons including a .40 caliber Glock 22, and given his previous felony record he was found guilty of parole violation, and ordered to serve concurrent sentences, on two counts of possession.

As of late, Buck has found himself engulfed in a string of bad luck, including owing the IRS $300,000 which resulted in having his personal belongings auctioned off to settle the debt. Unfortunately, Buck— born David Darnell Brown—didn’t have as much expensive stuff as Uncle Sam would’ve hoped, since the sale only netted a measly $53,000.
