    Rapper Young Buck will report to prison next month to begin serving a three-year sentence for weapons possession. He managed to negotiate a decent plea deal for himself and is looking forward to serving his time and starting over.

    The ex-member of the G Unit crew faced a gun charge after tax officials discovered the weapon during a raid on his Tennessee home in 2010. They were looking to repossess his belongings since he owed more than $300,000 in unpaid taxes.

    He is a convicted felon so he is not supposed to own a weapon and therein lies his big problem.

    Buck reached a plea deal with prosecutors in March to avoid a 10-year jail term.

    He is due to serve three years, but should get a early release after 18 months if he remains on the up and up in jail. Three years of probation will follow. We hope he is able to toe the line in the clink.

    Meanwhile, personal items, like recording equipment, plaques and jewelry will be auctioned off on July 26 to pay down his tax debts.

    The rapper said, "I've had some rough times. I've been fighting the bankruptcy situation, as well as my court situations. My pride is through the roof. My head is held high. I'm just looking to get all this behind me."

    Good luck!

    Any Young Buck fans out there sending him well wishes?
