Buck the World is the second album by rapper Young Buck.

Background

Its title is a play on the expression "Fuck the World". Buck the World was released on March 27 2007.

Production was provided by Dr. Dre, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Jazze Pha, Lil Jon, and Polow Da Don, among others. Guest appearances included 50 Cent, Chester Bennington, Young Jeezy, Bun B, Trick Daddy, and Lyfe Jennings among others. The first single was "I Know You Want Me", produced by Jazze Pha, who also made a guest appearance on the track. The second single was "Get Buck", produced by Polow Da Don, and the third single, "U Ain't Goin' Nowhere", was released on May 18 2007.

The iTunes version of the album replaces "Lose My Mind"/"The Funeral" with just "The Funeral", only 3:15 in length.

Reception

The album generally received favorable reviews from critics.[1] XXL magazine said that Young Buck "puts the spotlight back on the Unit and fires a shot that will be heard around the world."[2] All Music Guide's David Jeffries stated that "it's the release that makes him more than G-Unit's clean-up man by proving he could survive even if 50 and Shady bankrupted the corporation tomorrow."[3] Henry Adaso of About.com thought that Young Buck's "eagerness to redeem the Unit is sometimes marred by a lack of focus, as he goes from pimp-playa persona to typical tough-guy talk without catching a breath."[4] Rolling Stone's Christian Hoard wrote that "Young Buck proves that he's G-Unit's most enjoyable second banana."[5]

Sales and chart performance

Buck the World debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, behind Tim McGraw's Let It Go (325,000) and Now That's What I Call Music! 24 (230,000), with sales of 141,083.[6] The album debuted at number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
