Young Buck – Straight Outta Cashville review

Young Buck is “Straight Outta Ca$hville” – a place that seems to only pack guns, violence, drugs, money, and oddly-placed “Kill Bill” samples into a space known more for its guitar-wielding country music legends that its gun-toting hip-hop artists.

While the previous Southern-bias has all but been eliminated from hip-hop (see the success of Lil’ Jon, Outkast, etc.), fans of metropolitan East coast hip-hop will be surprised by G-Unit’s Buck, a charismatic, if not cocky and brash, Southern-drawled rapper with a chip on his shoulder and a style comparable to mentor 50 Cent. While no lyrical genius by any standards, Buck’s performances are less punchline (unlike labelmate Lloyd Banks) and more punch with a knack for all the aforementioned evils. Still, his limited range of topics quickly grow thinner than rumors of Elvis still roaming Nashville, with the result being the stale “Ca$hville.”

Young Buck – Straight Outta Cashville review

Getting straight to the point, Young Buck has given us one the most inconsistent solo debut out of all three G-Unit members. His debut album entitled “Straight Outta Cashville” is twenty tracks deep with just one interlude that clearly favors quantity over quality. What could’ve been a far better album if it was reduced to a solid twelve to fourteen, is instead an overall average album in which over 50% ranges from average to just plain awful.
