Former G-Unit member Young Buck has touched on his return to the spotlight with his new song “Gotta Love It,” which addresses his relationship status with 50 Cent.”
The song reminds fans of his constant grind and a situation with G-Unit producer Sha Money XL.
“Hey, you know a n*gga rolled up on me yesterday, right,” Buck said in the song’s intro. “N*gga was like, ‘Eh Buck, you ever getting down with the Unit again? N*gga was like ‘What’s up with you and 50,’ I was like, ‘Look my n*gga, I’m in these streets’ just like you right now. You see, real n*ggas, we just do what we do and stay focused…I should be on stage, instead of puttin’ shells in this gauge…On the tour bus, me and Sha Money somewhere in Europe/But d*mn sh*t ain’t work out right/I gotta exercise, you know work that white/Everybody in the streets think they deserve that life/N*ggas payin’ for respect but me, I earned that stripe/You know how many times I almost got murked that night…Save a Grammy for me, a Source award and Vibe/’Cause I’m comin’/Have your metal dectors outside/I said I’m comin’, so why all you motherf*ckers surprised/The good guy gets killed, the bad guy never dies.” (“Gotta Love It”)
Young Buck has rapped his feelings about G-Unit on songs like “Did You Miss Me.”
“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…These n*ggas ain’t that much better, will me and 50 work the sh*t out, nah, I ain’t sayin’ never…It’s been like two years since I had an album out, n*gga, my shows stay sold-out…The streets love me…I ain’t really had contact or seen money from this rap sh*t in about a year or so…I ain’t have no motherf*cking choice but to get out here in these streets and get mine.” (“Did You Miss Me”)
His dismissal from G-Unit was made public when 50 announced his decision last year on Hot 97’s now-defunct “Miss Jones in the Morning” program.
“You can look at it and see that’s Game all the way,” Fif said in the interview. “I was giving him a chance, giving him the benefit of the doubt. You can take this as an official notice right here, pretty much you can say, Young Buck is no longer in the group G-Unit, but signed to G-Unit [Records] as a solo artist.” (The Miss Jones Morning Show)
Buck recently announced the upcoming release of his mixtape Back On My Buck Sh*t.
“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)
