Eminem’s crew D-12 has reportedly linked up with former G-Unit member Young Buck for a new track in the works.
While details are still scarce, Buck broke the news of a new collaboration via Twitter.
“Bout to go HAM on this D-12 record!! Much Respect. EM # salute!!,” he tweeted Monday (March 21). (Young Buck’s Twitter)
D-12’s Bizarre also confirmed the joint record and hinted at it being featured on an upcoming mixtape.

In 2009, Buck raised eyebrows after name-checking Eminem on a record.
“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”)
However, he later came forward to clarify the name drop and deny wanting to beef with Em.
“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”)
