Young Buck's bankruptcy case continues to wind through the court system in Tennessee, as a judge converted his bankruptcy plan from Chapter 13 to Chapter 11.
Creditors recently approved a new trustee to administer the rapper's estate in Chapter 11, which means Buck's label Cashville Records will earn the money to pay off his debts, as opposed to his personal assets.
According to lawyers representing Young Buck, the new structure was needed because the rapper is more engaged in business.
The rapper recently filed a motion to hire a Nashville-based entertainment lawyer named Robin Joyce, to help him secure his royalty payments and record deals to generate income for his estate and business.
On January 31st, Young Buck will do battle with Wells Fargo and their upcoming attempt to seize his 2002 BMW X5, claiming he has missed seven months worth of payments.
If Young Buck fails to meet his obligations in Chapter 11, it could then be converted to Chapter 7 and all of his personal assets would be seized again and distributed to his creditors as payment.
In an interview with VIBE, Shady Records latest signee discusses breaking the news to his mother, his sophomore set, and how his deal came about.
“Keeping quiet was the hardest shit in the world, honestly. I was just so excited for a while. And everyone from my team who did know was really responsible about not letting it out. But I met with Eminem about four to five months ago in Detroit. Paul and Em flew me and my manager out to just kick it and get acquainted. From that meeting, I had no idea it would turn into this situation. I remember Paul was asking me about the meth problem in Alabama and I told him that I wrote ‘Pop The Trunk’ based off that issue. Next thing I know, Em starts rapping some of my lines from the song. I can’t even describe how that felt, I actually got super nervous. Em’s a real hip-hop fan, he knows about everything that’s going on.”
It seems the only way to find spankin'-new Andre 3000 lyrics these days is on the odd remix, and the ATLien definitely picked a left-of-center choice for his latest feature.
On Friday (January 14), a remix of Ke$ha's Cannibal track "Sleazy" hit the Web, outfitted with some brand-new bars from the elusive Outkast MC. The southern spitter uses the revamp to muse about a young kid dealing with a deadbeat dad over the song's bouncy thump.
"We start out so cute in our baby pictures/ That mama shot for our daddy so that he wouldn't forget you/ He forgot anyway, but hey, one day he'll remember/ If not, he's human, I'm human, you human, we'll forgive him," he spits.
After sounding off about daddy issues, Stacks then rhymes about his playful relationship with the glitter-friendly poptress.
"I call her Keisha, she like it because it's hood to her/ She call me Andre 6000 because I'm good to her," he says.
The remix follows a slew of random guest appearances on records by everyone from DJ Unk to Rich Boy as fans await another full-length release from 'Dre. Back in 2008, the Love Below lyricist broke down his affinity for jumping on the occasional remix to MTV News, explaining that cooking up another quality solo record is no easy task.
"I've been doing remixes here and there, and let me tell you, thank God for remixes. I wanna tell everybody who's been checking out the remixes and things like the John Legend song ['Green Light']: In this day and age, those are the things that have kind of been keeping me alive. Because it takes me awhile to record albums," he said. "I have to kind of build up something to say."

Nicki Minaj has been tapped as the musical guest for an upcoming episode of "Saturday Night Live."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Young Money MC will join "Social Network" star Jesse Eisenberg, who will serve as host, for the show's January 29 broadcast.
THR also reported that Linkin Park will perform during the February 5 episode, which is set to feature hosting duties from former "SNL" castmember Dana Carvey.
Known for her out-of-the-box fashion and manic rhymes, Minaj will likely perform her new single, "Moment 4 Life," featuring Drake, as she brought the tune to her appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" earlier this week. Eisenberg's and Minaj's upcoming appearance marks the first time for both on the sketch show.
"SNL" isn't the only treat Minaj has up her sleeve for her fans. Minaj recently teamed up with Rihanna to shoot the music video for another one of the MC's new singles, "Fly." When E! News asked about the concept for the upcoming clip, Nicki remained tight-lipped, saying, "We're going to save the world in more ways than one with the video, and that's all I can say about that."
However, it was the duo's TwitPics that sent the Internet ablaze when rumors circulated that Nicki and Rihanna were living together. The MC took to Ryan Seacrest's radio show to clear the air. "I don't know where people got this really insane, hilarious, random rumor that she and I were living together," she said. "We just shot the video for a song I have on the album I have called 'Fly,' and when I saw her, the first thing I said was, 'So, did you hear we're living together?' and we just started cracking up laughing. She was like, 'Yo, I can't believe that people are, like, this ridiculous. So we TwitPic'd ourselves, and she put it on Twitter and said 'Me and Nicki at our new pad' or something."
