A fresh start awaits American rapper “Young Buck” after he gets out of bankruptcy, according to a report released on September 19.

The 32-year-old rapper from Tennessee settled a total of $391,333.59 in outstanding debt. As Young Buck exits bankruptcy, some of his creditors will not be paid, including rapper 50 Cent, who lent him $300,000.

An IRS bill totaling to $42,699 was also paid by the rapper, and more than 85 percent of claims against him have already been settled with the New York State Tax Department. The rapper, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, declared bankruptcy in 2010 after agents of the IRS took his personal properties to pay his taxes.

Plan to exit bankruptcy by American Airlines delayed by judge

Posted on Saturday, August 24th, 2013 at 4:30 pm    

A New York judge delayed a decision to approve a reorganization plan by American Airlines to exit bankruptcy, according to a report on Thursday, August 15. According to analysts, the decision to delay the reorganization plan is more of a psychological blow, rather than a legal one, that will affect American Airline and its employees.

The decision to delay was made after the U.S. Justice Department and six states filed a lawsuit to prevent the merger of US Airways and American Airlines. A merger between the two airlines will result in higher fares and fees for consumers and will decrease competition, according to the U.S. Justice Department. However, the two airlines said the merger is the only way to compete with larger airlines like Delta and United.

In many circumstances, filing for business bankruptcy is the best option when your business is facing too much debt. Thus, if you are considering your financial options as a business owner in Houston, speak with a lawyer from the Russell Van Beustring P.C., by calling 713-973-6650 today.
