Former G-Unit member Young Buck recently spoke on his aim to cut business ties with 50 Cent and promised there was no bad blood with his ex-labelmates.
Confirming he is no longer an Interscope artist, Buck did, however, say he was still under contract with Fif.
“Much respect to them dudes, but I’m doing my thing right now,” Buck said in an interview regarding G-Unit. “To be honest, I’m trying to get away from that situation. No sooner than I get away from that situation, you’ll be hearing from Young Buck. [The music industry is] 90 percent business and 10 percent talent…Cashville Records, we got this.” (MTV)
He recently spoke on his new mixtape Back On My Bucksh*t.
“What’s taking so long with the Back On My Bucksh*t mixtape,” Buck asked in a video. “This what’s going on right now, I’m riding right now. This is me, this is my life…I’m letting you see what’s going on, I’m good. I go through sh*t just like you go through sh*t, just like everybody go through sh*t but I’m good man, ya understand? It got a n*gga more focused, I will say that much. But I will say you can’t hold a real n*gga down for too long. Streets been waiting, Back On My Bucksh*t. And I’m giving you b*tch a** rappers h*ll. I see you h*e a** n*ggas but I ain’t gonna give you no attention, I’ma give you h*ll…I just wanna let n*ggas know and keep n*ggas focused right now. ‘Cause I see this right now, they hitting this sh*t all over the Internet. A hundred thousand hits, ‘When is the Back On My Bucksh*t coming’ and all that. Well, it’s on the way n*gga. The mission is completed ’cause y’all see DJ Scream and DJ Smallz right here with a n*gga. The wait is over and it’s about to get even realer than this.” (Southern Smoke TV)
Buck announced the mixtape earlier this year.
“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.” (DJ Scream)
The rapper previously offered his opinions on why 50 has kept him on the G-Unit roster.
“In my situation, it’s more humiliating to me I think in 50 eyes to hold me as long as he can before I’m actually able to fulfill the albums I have left [on my contract],” Buck said in an interview. “So, eventually I’ll be able to come around and do another album… I think  knows that if he was to [release me] everybody and they mama waiting on the kid…It’s simple, I can let you know what I’ve made. I’ll just put out my tax statements since I signed with G-Unit… I haven’t received ten million dollars, or jacked off 10 million dollars. I’ve never paid a million dollars in taxes.” (Hip Hop DX)
