Former G-Unit member Young Buck may finally be out of his contract with ex-affiliate 50 Cent after recently hinting at renegotiation talks having taken place.
While Buck remained mum on the details, he did name drop his former rap crew.
"I'ma be honest with y'all. Right now, finally, we're having some kind of negotiations with what we'll be able to do as far as the G-Unit situation. So y'all will be the first ones to hear but I'm able to tell you the wait is over. It's definitely over. I don't want to put a time limit on it, but the wait is absolutely over, and we're just trying to figure out what's the best situation for us far as where am I gonna go. I don't think I'm going to be able to complete the last few albums I have on G-Unit. But hey, at the end of the day, it is what it is. The past is the past and we're living in the present."

Over the weekend, Buck Marley said he wanted to get back on speaking terms with G-Unit.
"It's been a long time since I've had any kind of conversation with [Lloyd] Banks, [Tony] Yayo, 50 [Cent], anybody really through that camp over that way," Buck told DJ Whoo Kid in an interview. "It's been even a long time since I heard your voice to even have a conversation and we having it on air, live for the people. ... At the end of the day, we've made history and I would never not consider not being a chance for us to make history again if ever given the opportunity or chance. My thing is, at the end of the day, we only get older out here in this situation, in life, in itself and the older I became, the wiser I became at the same time." (Shade 45)
Back in 2010, the Southern rapper talked about 50 keeping him locked into a G-Unit contract despite no longer being a group member.
"Listen, in those three years since I've been away from G-Unit, have you once heard 50 Cent say 'I want this much for Buck to get out of his contract or anything like that?' No! So that right there should be enough to understand the kind of situation that I'm in," Buck pointed out in an interview. "All I need is the support of the people right now. 50's been on a mission to starve me out...I'm still stuck contractually. I haven't spoken to anyone from G-Unit in three years including 50 and I still have albums left over there." (VIBE)
In December, Young Buck confirmed there were plans to join Cash Money.
In an interview Wednesday night, an exasperated Buck said the conversion is counterproductive because he is close to signing a recording deal with Cash Money Records that would allow him to pay all his debts and exit bankruptcy orderly. The proposed multi-party deal, independently confirmed by The Tennessean, would have settled Buck's contract dispute with former mentor 50 Cent and his G-Unit Records and shipped him to New Orleans-based Cash Money. Buck is still under contract with G-Unit but has been prevented from recording since 2008 because of a personal falling out with 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson. (The Tennessean)
