In December, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge in Nashville converted the bankruptcy of David Darnell Brown -- the rapper's legal name -- from a Chapter 11 reorganization to a Chapter 7 liquidation. The trustee administering his estate said she planned to sell the trademarked "Young Buck" name along with other assets seized for non-payment.
Creditors submitted claims totaling $11.5 million, including $10 million that the label G-Unit Records said Buck owed them over a contract dispute.
