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

Background[edit]

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

The singles from this album include "Let Me In", (featuring 50 Cent), "Shorty Wanna Ride", and "Stomp", (featuring The Game & Ludacris). The album features several rappers "outside" of the G-Unit camp, such as Lil' Flip, David Banner, D-Tay, Stat Quo, and others. The album also features production from Lil Jon, Kon Artis, and Klasic from The Bullets Production Team, along with others.

Straight Outta Cashville received minimal promotion after November 2004 as result of the VIBE award incident, in which Young Buck was arrested for an assault. Though the case was eventually dropped, four months had passed by since Young Buck himself had been able to promote the album.

Sales and certifications[edit]

In its first week of release, Straight Outta Cashville debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart with sales of 361,000.[10] The album has since been certified Platinum by the RIAA.[11]
