New York rapper Tony Yayo remembers the good ol’ days. The hip-hop veteran has contributed to Throwback Thursday with a vintage pic of his G-Unit squad.

On Thursday, the “Talk of New York” went to Instagram with the memorable flashback. The pic also features fellow rap heavyweights Royce Da 5’9, Papoose and Crooked I.
This week, former G-Unit member Game extended his hand to estranged 50 Cent protégé Young Buck. In addition to acknowledging they hadn’t talked in some time, Game promised to send him money to help out with his financial problems.
Wait, There’s More
According to reports, Buck’s financial crisis came to light in amended bankruptcy documents filed last week. The paperwork claimed Buck owed over $50,000 to the IRS and more than $100,000 in child support.
Despite being a member of one of the most popular hip hop groups of the mid-2000s, Young Buck said that he has NO property, money in the bank, cash on hand, barely any assets, and owns just $100 in clothes and $100 in jewelry. Things are so bad that he has to rely on his girlfriend for his basic day to day needs; he drives her car and uses her household goods in the home they share, his court papers state. (Bossip)
Before You Go
In May 2020, buzz developed about Buck Marley filing for bankruptcy in January. The rap heavyweight had also remained behind bars without bail for a past crime.
The rapper lists his main creditors as the mothers of his six kids, the Georgia Department of Human Services and the IRS. The move could be a shrewd business tactic on behalf of Young Buck, who is disputing an undisclosed amount of money owed to 50 Cent and G-Unit. Young Buck is asking to “reject any and all executory contracts with G-Unit and/or Curtis Jackson.” Young Buck did pretty well for himself despite his contractual dispute with Fif, since he earned just under $100,000 a year between 2017 and 2019.
