Former G-Unit member Young Buck has accused 50 Cent of wanting to secretly destroy his rap career by indefinitely shelving his contractual albums.
Buck believes 50 is intentionally hurting his brand ever since their relationship turned sour in 2008 when he was kicked out of G-Unit.
“His reaction, being so harsh, is to basically stall me out to a position where I lose everything, to where my numbers drop,” Young Buck told the Nashville Scene in a new interview. “Because if you don’t have a new product out, then you can’t go get the big dollar for your shows. [He wants] to pretty much destroy my life from a silent-sided way of doing things. That’s his angle, and my contracts allow him to be able to do that. The problem is, I go to be a feature on [an artists’] hit record, and then they have to go to 50 Cent to clear me on the record, and he says, ‘No.’ And they’re looking like, ‘Well, d*mn’ — cause if it wasn’t for that I would probably be on every record that’s out right now, cause everybody and their mama reaches out and gives me support.” (All Hip Hop)
Buck recently talked about wanting 50 to eventually work out a deal for him to get out of his G-Unit contract.
“Mr. Curtis can only hold me for so long,” Buck said in an interview with DJ Scream. “Eventually he’s gotta come to some type of terms of negotiations. I haven’t spoke to 50 in three years. I done did every thing you could do, called the n*gga’s phone to having lawyers reach out. I really just want to have a sit-down with this n*gga, eye to eye. [We can do it] personally or on ESPN, BET, MTV, wherever he wanna do this sh*t, I just really want to look at this sh*t in his eyes and see how this n*gga really feels and how he’s going about handling me because I’m a real n*gga and this is something that 50 does though. Every one of them G-Unit n*ggas know how I get down. Period. Ain’t no bullsh*t…” (DJ Scream)
Last month, Buck said he would not be interested in a G-Unit reunion.
“I just want to get this out real quick and make sure to let all my people out there know one thing, as far as the G-Unit reunion sh*t on me, I ain’t with that sh*t,” Buck told a crowd of concert fans. “We got too much unfinished business to happen, 50. I’m not with none of that sh*t — I just want to make sure we get that clear. I’m not with it my n*gga, you took a real n*gga through too much my n*gga. If you want war, we gonna go to war [and] we gonna do this sh*t in a real street way until one of us dies my n*gga. I’ll play that game with you. It’s only right, somebody’s gotta do this in a real way…Even if I lose my life in being a real n*gga, one thing y’all motherf*ckers know is that [I] was a real n*gga…When a n*gga playing with a n*gga’s life then you treat a n*gga with no emotions. You take a n*gga’s life. So either meet me in h*ll or heaven, f*ck you, f*ck G-Unit.” (EME T.V.)
In March, Buck promised he would never return to the Unit.
“I get my money with or without the G-Unit,” Buck said in a video. “It will never be me amongst that again. We can just negotiate about me going about my business and him getting his percentage with the albums, but as far as me — nah, I’m gonna ride my own…I just look at [my time over there] as a hard learning experience, I’m using it as a stepping stone at this point and I’m moving forward. I’m not even dedicating energy towards that sh*t. I’m so focused on Cashville Records and getting to a better place — he’s playing the game doing what he’s doing, and I’m doing what I’m doing…This is an exclusive — think about this, if 50 signed Beanie Sigel, if Beanie Sigel signed [to] 50 Cent, then what if Jay-Z signed Young Buck?” (This Is Truth TV)
