Rapper YOUNG BUCK has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon in the US.

The charge dates back to the Vibe Hip-Hop Awards in California in November, when the 22-year-old artist, real name David Darnell Brown, allegedly stabbed a man who had allegedly punched fellow rapper Dr Dre.

The victim, Jimmy James Johnson, suffered a collapsed lung. He has been charged with assault relating to the incident, reports the BBC.

Brown, a member of 50 Cent’s G-Unit crew, faces up to eight years in prison if convicted. He is free on $500,000 bail until a hearing on January 14.
