Former G-Unit rapper Young Buck has denied 50 Cent's claims that he made $10 million, and has revealed details surrounding his forthcoming album.
The Cashville rapper claims the money he made while associated with G-Unit did not equal out to eight figure numbers.
"In my situation, it's more humiliating to me I think in 50 eyes to hold me as long as he can before I'm actually able to fulfill the albums I have left [on my contract]," Buck said in an interview. So, eventually I'll be able to come around and do another album... I think  knows that if he was to [release me] everybody and they mama waiting on the kid...It's simple, I can let you know what I've made. I'll just put out my tax statements since I signed with G-Unit... I haven't received 10 million dollars, or jacked off 10 million dollars. I've never paid a million dollars in taxes...The Ca$h Cow...That's the name of my next album because that's what 50 knows I am, that's what you know I am, the streets know I am. So that's what I'mma deliver." (Hip Hop DX)
Buck's $10 million reference stems from a past statement by 50 regarding G-Unit members' compensation.
"Each person in G-Unit has earned over $10 million in their career at this point," 50 said in an interview. "Outside of the guys that didn't release product, M.O.P., Spider Loc, Olivia, the guys that had their project go out physically. I didn't say they have $10 million, I said they've seen $10 million. What they did with their paper, I don't know." (MTV News)
Buck recently reappeared into the rap spotlight with his song "Did You Miss Me."
"All these rappers wanna talk about how much money they got, how much work then done flipped, I don't see none of you n*ggas out here, I'm out here for real," Buck says in the intro. "Since everybody rich now, f*ck it I'm broke...Freeway Ricky Ross be home end of March/We gotta all together, ain't nothin' fell apart/I'd be lying sittin' here actin' like the sh*t ain't hard...These n*ggas ain't that much better, will me and 50 work the sh*t out, nah, I ain't sayin' never...It's been like two years since I had an album out, n*gga, my shows stay sold-out...The streets love me...I ain't really had contact or seen money from this rap sh*t in about a year or so...I ain't have no motherf*cking choice but to get out here in these streets and get mine."

Buck was dismissed from G-Unit last April.
"You can look at it and see that's Game all the way," Fif said in an interview. "I was giving him a chance, giving him the benefit of the doubt. You can take this as an official notice right here, pretty much you can say, Young Buck is no longer in the group G-Unit, but signed to G-Unit [Records] as a solo artist."
