When the Internal Revenue Service seized Young Buck’s property to recover thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes, the rapper rebounded by filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy and a $25,000 lawsuit against the IRS for “great stress” the agency caused his family by raiding his home.
Now the agency has responded, arguing against Young Buck’s claim that the August seizure stifled his “creative juices” from the loss of items, including “Royal Copenhagen bear figurines,” a Tennessee Titans soda machine and an arcade video game. The Wall Street Journal reports that the IRS is disputing the accusation of “forceful” entry or that the rappers’ children’s belongings were among the assets taken.
If the music artist, real name David Darnell Brown, cannot follow through on his plan to sell real estate to pay back his debt by December 7th, the judge will reinstate the auction of his property.
