The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has responded to the former G-Unit member Young Buck claiming that they damaged his personal items and stopped him from making profits due to a raid last summer. The IRS claims that it had the right to seize Young Buck's valuables in the August raid.
In a new bankruptcy-court filing, the federal tax agency is defending itself from a lawsuit in which Young Buck seeks the return of nearly $25,000 worth of his possessions. The IRS seized the assets in August as part of its quest to be paid on the thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes that Young Buck, whose given name is David Darnell Brown, owes. The IRS disputes Brown's claim that its seizure of the assets was "forceful" as well as the claim that the rappers' kids' belongings were among the assets it seized. Brown had argued that his children and common-law wife experienced "great stress" as a result of the seizure. The IRS also doesn't buy the rapper's attempt to tie the success of his work to the missing assets, questioning the necessity of having "Royal Copenhagen bear figurines" and the afore-mentioned soda machine and games around in order to write hip-hop tunes.
