On the heels of his departure from G-Unit, Young Buck has announced plans to release his documentary DVD A Billion Bucks This June.
A Billion Bucks follows Buck through his everyday life over the course of a year as he travels from the South Side Projects in Tennessee to Cuba for a getaway, across the U.S. on tour and on a backwoods fishing trip, revealing himself to his audience by slowly opening up to the camera as a form of therapy.
Throughout this journey of self-discovery, Buck unveils his many different sides - father, felon, fisherman, poet, and hood hero among them. A Billion Bucks is a double disc DVD which also includes three exclusive unreleased music videos, six new tracks featuring Young Buck, C-Bo, Tha Outlawz and 615, as well as a complete photo gallery. The release also features new performance and behind-the-scenes footage which has never been seen before.
A Billion Bucks was shot and edited by Decon's Jason Goldwatch who has previously worked on Ludacris' The Red Light District, Young Jeezy's Thug Motivation 101, and most recently directed Damian Marley's "One Loaf Of Bread" video which was shot in Haiti.
"The greatest aspect of shooting with Buck was the mutual respect and genuine curiosity that developed between us," Jason Goldwatch said via statement. "We are such different people, from such different places, and over the course of our travels and experiences finding actually, we are very much the same. And the camera was there to capture the frankness, the dirt, the openness, and the realness of it all. It was an amazing experience. Buck the world."
A Billion Bucks drops June 10 via Decon and Cashville Records; Young Buck plans to spend early June promoting the DVD release.
In related news, in a Hot 97 interview April 7th 50 Cent revealed that Young Buck is no longer a part of G-Unit the group, but is currently signed to G-Unit as a solo artist.
