Young Buck Says He's a Taylor Swift Fan, Wants a Collaboration

Rapper Young Buck Faces 10 Years in Prison For Firearm Possession

Young Buck is really feeling Taylor Swift right now. 

The rapper's pronounced admiration for his fellow Nashville-native comes after Swift accepted an award for her social media presence at last month's 7th Annual Shorty Awards by video, rapping Buck's hit "Shorty Wanna Ride."

Buck was so stoked about this, he reposted the video, saying that he's looking for Swift and wants to work with her. And now he's talking about it interviews. 

"There are a lot of artists that may be in different genres of music that are fans of hip-hop that express it and some may not," Buck told Complex. "I think it is cool to see Taylor let the people know that, ‘Hey, I’m a fan of this music. There nothing wrong with being a fan of this music.' It’s nothing wrong with me [saying], 'Hey, I’m a fan of her music,' and actually mean it."

Young Buck Survives Drive-By Shooting

This was not the first time Swift has either expressed her love for hip-hop or shouted out Young Buck. Last year she told Vibe when she was a teenager growing up in Nashville, she and her boyfriend would drive by his house and geek out admiring his cars.

Buck said he'd love to collaborate with Swift sometime, saying, "It would be magic."
