Young Buck Admits 50 Cent Tried To End His Career

Interviews - Kiesha Wray Article

50 Cent was one of the hottest rappers coming into the rap industry and he used his popularity to form the G Unit collective to top charts.

Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, The Game, and Tony Yayo were highly anticipated by the time they had to release solo joints. The first crack in the armor was the loss of West Coast rapper, The Game, although the team would not skip a beat with creating hard hitting music for the streets like in the music video below.

Young Buck reflects on those times and how everything didn’t pan out for G Unit in the end.

“You know, I’m at a point now where I’m just focused on moving forward with my career, with my artists,” Buck told VladTV. “I got a helluva team. I got a helluva artist, a group of artists at this point, that’s making a lot of noise right now. I’ve wrote records for 50. He’s recited my lyrics, word for word. I’ve played my part with G-Unit in every kind of way as a loyal soldier, loyal brother, and everything.”

“At this point, I don’t think nothing can move forward with myself unless I’m kinda, you know, paid attention to on what’s really owed and what’s really the business is on my situation,” he continued. “If we could get past that, then I probably would consider it, but I see a lot of different pushes from Game’s manager and sh*t in regards to trying to make the Verzuz thing happen and sh*t.”

Buck said he supports the idea, but his relationship with 50 Cent and G-Unit is “a little bit deeper” than what people may understand. “I’m dealing with somebody that’s worked [tirelessly] to end my career, should I quote-unquote say,” added Buck. “It’s just a different feel when you see somebody go as hard as he’s went in regards to me. I really can’t see myself being apart of G-Unit or being involved with G-Unit at this point in no kinda way.”

Young Buck believes anything can happen as he didn’t see himself working with the crew back in the day and he ended up being a member of the collective, so anything could happen. “God has his ways of doing things and Imma stay on God’s time more than anything… Anything’s possible but right now, I’m not considering it.”

He continued by stating, “I’m alright. I’m alright regardless. Throughout all the bullsh*t talk and everything that they say, hey man, I’m still sitting here doing alright.” Check out the clip from his interview below.
