This Nashville native — the lone Southern soldier in 50 Cent’s G-Unit camp — does his hometown proud on his second solo album, Buck the World. Producers including Dr. Dre, Lil Jon, and Jazze Pha supply a top-notch set of stomping, symphonic beats; those backdrops might overwhelm a lesser vocalist, but Young Buck’s booming tone never falters. Balancing belligerent boasts with flashes of vulnerable honesty, he out-raps some formidable guests (T.I., Young Jeezy, Snoop Dogg) and delivers G-Unit’s strongest LP in recent memory. B+
