Former G-Unit member Young Buck has clarified his Eminem name drop from last month's "If I Have To" record and promised he would never throw shots at the Oscar-winning rapper.
Calling in to DJ Whoo Kid's "G-Unit Radio" show over the weekend, Buck Marley explained his stance toward Slim Shady.
"Man, I would never diss Eminem," Buck promised. "You know what? I would never diss Eminem. I'ma be real, what had happened was I got a white producer that's from my town -- that actually produced that track. So when I went into the booth, I'm like 'Eminem, we after your a**' basically speaking on the production side of things because the producer of the track is a white dude and Eminem is his favorite and just f*cking with him. And actually, I still slam the sh*t outta his a** for keeping that sh*t on there, you feel me? [laughs] Once I saw how the track got out there like it did, I got at Trick Trick real quick, that's one of my homeboys and I know he's right there with Em [so] he don't take that sh*t the wrong kinda way 'cause how that fumbled. I ain't got no problems with Eminem. He's one of the realest motherf*ckers with me in this rap sh*t. There's only a handful of 'em." ("G-Unit Radio")
Aside from name dropping Slim Shady in the track's intro, Buck used the song to describe his street credentials.
"Cool, turn me up my n*gga," Buck says in the beginning. "[laughs] Eminem, we coming for your a**, ain't that right Coop? Man, we go too hard, for real. Shoot a n*gga dead right now if I had to/Hop out, walk up and just blast you/Snatch him out his Chevy/Take what's on his wrist, let the young n*ggas strip it...I'm pissed, you don't want your name on that list/'fore we come through, n*gga, we don't miss/Throwing shells out the chopper..." ("If I Have To")
Buck recently spoke on his falling out with 50's rap group and took partial blame for their past beef.
"My whole strategy idea for coming back out and f*cking with this rap sh*t is totally opposite what motherf*ckers think I'ma do," Buck said in an interview. "I think a lot of motherf*ckers think I'ma come out [and] beef with 50 and holler 'F*ck G-Unit' and all of that sh*t. I ain't even looking to do it like that. I'm looking to just make straight god d*mnit good music and do my thing through the music...I'd rather just focus on making the music instead of dedicating energy to some sh*t that's meaningless. If we got a problem with each other, it is what it is...Maybe I got out of pocket a little bit because I played a part in the sh*t too. So I can't sit here and act like I ain't did sh*t. I just as much played a part of it as any other of the n*ggas I was with. Whether it was 50, Banks or Yayo or beefing with n*ggas unnecessarily. N*ggas had they reasons at the time for what they were beefing over." (Tim Video)
Buck previously released a song called "Pullin Me Back" which discussed his departure from G-Unit and the Aftermath/Shady Records labels.
"Yeah, it's me, Young Buck, okay get your cameras ready," Buck says on the song's intro. "Different shoot-outs, it's the same sh*t/It's been a while since you heard a Buck album/It's just business, kept my distance/Now where them motherf*ckers at, I gotta have 'em/F*ck another album, pump another volume/Roll another blunt, I'm back...Until today, still ain't heard a word from Dre/Or a word from Em/Still f*ck with them/Me and 50 ain't spoke/And Banks ain't called/I ain't seen or ran into Yayo at all/But I'm out here, for whatever it's worth/By any means, ask me to sell 'em a verse/Could bury me alive, cover me up with dirt...It's just me. I'm saying just holler at me, IAmYoungBuck.com. I told y'all n*ggas I was back on my Buck sh*t, right? Classic sh*t." ("Pullin Me Back")
