In a new SiriusXM interview, Yayo discussed where things stand with Buck following recent transgender romance rumors.
“I don’t even know what’s up with that, man,” Yayo said when asked if Young Buck is still in G-Unit. “Buck is a spontaneous dude, you never know what to expect from him. Me, myself, I didn’t step on his neck while he was down because of all the tranny allegations. Transgender. Let me not say ‘tranny’ and people come looking for me – I just feel like in your career, your life is an open book and it was a situation it was out there. I didn’t know how to respond to that. I just remember the last time he had a gay accusation and he called me and I said don’t even worry about it, it’ll breeze over. It’s just press. 72 hours in this world, it’s over. 48 hours, 72 hours it’s a wrap. But this time I didn’t know what to say to him about the transsexual woman. To each’s own. 50 clowned on him a little bit. 50’s crazy. You know how he do. But everybody was clowning. I feel like in that situation, you can’t just get mad at 50 because the whole world was clowning you at that point. Every website. TMZ. Worldstar. Then you was on the phone with the person. N*gga, you on the phone again? Come on, n*gga, stay off that phone.” (SiriusXM)
Tony also talked about 6ix9ine making a bad decision on his management.
“He got put on so fast the wheels were turning and he didn’t know what he was doing. Management-wise, shout-out to Tr3yway but you can’t have a gangster as a manager. You gotta have like a Chris Lighty – you can’t really have a gangster manager. You can’t really be getting into sh*t in the middle of Manhattan, the [Brooklyn] Barclays Center and think nothing’s going to happen. Sh*t is going to happen. I’ve been through all this sh*t. My mom’s house got shot up 22 times – in ’07, in the [Jimmy] Henchman situation. I know what real beef is.” (SiriusXM)
A few days ago, Buck appeared to low-key blame estranged G-Unit boss 50 Cent for having his music pulled from digital giant iTunes.
The same week, Young Buck sent some direct smoke at 50 and questioned his status on G-Unit Records.
