Former G-Unit member Young Buck is moving on, with the announcement of a new mixtape Back On My Buck Sh*t, which he says it's for "the streets."
Acknowledging his absence from the hip-hop spotlight, Buck reminded fans he's still making music and at the peak of his emcee career.
"Streets wanna know what's going on with Buck and where I been at and all that good sh*t," Buck said in a video. "The streets been waiting long enough, so get ready man. Mixtape is on the way. DJ Scream. DJ Smallz. Young Buck. I'm back on my Buck sh*t. Straight up and if you a fan of Buck you already know what it is. If you not a fan of Buck, then just pay attention 'cause at this point, I feel like I'm more focused than I've ever been in my career...I'm good people, I'm doing what you should be doing and that's surviving...Coming to a 'hood near you. Back On My Buck Sh*t." (Southern Smoke TV)
Buck recently made headlines discussing his financial hardships in rap music on the song "Did You Miss Me" released earlier this year.
"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. (SOHH)
The Cashville rapper recently addressed 50 Cent's claims that he making $10 million while being in G-Unit.
"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." (Hip Hop DX)
Aside from music, Buck's David Brown Clothing apparel line reportedly went out of business earlier this year.
David Brown Clothing is out of business. Young Buck launched the clothing line last April but back then he was still with G-Unit. The David Brown Clothing collection included jeans, tees and hoodies all with the signature Young Buck "bandanna" print inspiration. But with its high prices and Buck's dwindling popularity, it was only a matter of time before he called it quits with David Brown Clothing. Even his clothing line website which included an online store has been shutdown so no chance at buying that excess inventory on the cheap. (Woooha)
