G-Unit member and Nashville, TN native Young Buck gears up for the release of his first feature length DVD release, A Billion Bucks. Documenting the life and times of the rapper, the film takes a look at the day-to-day struggles of life as a rap star.
From father to felon, fisherman to poet, hood-hero to introvert, the feature documentary studies Young Buck as he wears his heart on his sleeve, opening up completely to the camera as recommended by his psychiatrist. He willingly takes the camera with him everywhere, in an effort to gain understanding of self, and ultimately find inner peace.
Come along with Young Buck to the South Side Projects in Tennessee, to Cuba for a quick get away, across the U.S. on tour, through the back woods on a fishing trip, and so much more.
“The greatest aspect of shooting with Buck was the mutual respect and genuine curiosity that developed between us,” said Jason Goldwatch, director of the film. “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.”
The DOUBLE DISC DVD features:
• 3 new exclusive unreleased music videos
• 6 new tracks featuring Young Buck, C-Bo, Tha Outlawz and 615
• complete photo gallery
The release features never before seen performance and behind-the-scenes footage of this infamous G-Unit member as documented over a year’s worth of time out on the road.
A Billion Bucks was shot and edited by Decon’s Jason Goldwatch who is known for combining abstract experimental film techniques, with street savvy storytelling. Jason’s portfolio includes Ludacris’ "The Red Light District”, Young Jeezy’s “Thug Motivation 101", and most recently he directed The Damian Marley music video "One Loaf Of Bread" shot in Haiti.
Young Buck will be hitting the road in early June in support of the DVD release. Bear witness as the film flips a G to A BILLION BUCKS!
