Friday To-Do: Young Buck

YOUNG BUCK
7 p.m., HPER Center, Pine Bluff. $20.

A couple of years ago at a rap awards show, someone masquerading as a fan punched Dr. Dre in the face. Young Buck, presumably in the middle of dinner, hopped up, jumped in the fracas and stabbed the dude with a fork. From that we can glean two things about Buck. He’s a little (or more than a little) crazy, and he’s fiercely loyal. Since that incident, early in his affiliation with G-Unit, the Nashville MC has remained with his clique, waiting patiently in line to release albums, though it’s become clear that he’s a better rapper than anyone else in G-Unit, including his boss, 50 Cent. Lately, he’s even weathered public recrimination from 50 Cent after Buck tried to bury the hatchet with one of 50’s sworn enemies. While all eyes will be on 50 this week as he releases his much-hyped new album (and soldiers on towards irrelevancy), Buck will be onstage in PB doing that gritty, deeply Southern rap that he does best. He’s still touring behind last year’s “Buck the World,” a nihilistic burner that’s testament that the rapper should be around long after 50 fades. Alabama’s Rich Boy, who rose to fame on the strength of “Throw Some D’s,” an infectious anthem about outfitting a Cadillac with fancy rims, performs with the thickest Southern accent in mainstream rap. And Huey, a St. Louis rapper who came onto the scene with the novelty dance track “Pop, Lock and Drop It,” also performs.
