Straight Outta Cashville is the debut studio album by rapper Young Buck. It was released on August 24, 2004, through G-Unit & Interscope.


The album's title alludes to the N.W.A. album Straight Outta Compton and is a neologism for Nashville (his hometown),

The singles from this album include "Let Me In", "Shorty Wanna Ride", and "Look at Me Now". It features a lot of rappers outside of G-Unit such as Lil' Flip, David Banner, D-Tay, Ludacris, Game, Stat Quo and production from Lil Jon, Kon Artis, and Klasic from The Bullets Production Team.

The album received very little promotion after November because of the VIBE award incident, after which Young Buck was arrested for assault. Though the case was dropped it had been four months since Young Buck himself had promoted the album.

Sales and certifications[edit]

The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 with about 261,000 copies sold, in the first week, and has since been certified Platinum by the RIAA.[10]
