Young Buck Says 50 Cent Is Trying To Destroy His Career
Nashville, Tennessee rapper Young Buck recently took aim at 50 Cent, revealing the Queens-rapper is still feuding with him and attempting to destroy his career.
Young Buck was once a member of 50 Cent’s G-Unit collective.
Under his tenure with 50’s G-Unit Records, the rapper was featured on the hit album Beg for Mercy, while his follow-up, Welcome to Cashville went platinum.
But Young Buck was unceremoniously kicked out of G-Unit for allegedly being disloyal to the group in April of 2008.
50 Cent has been at odds with the Nashville rapper ever since.
According to Young Buck, 50 Cent is blackballing him from the rap game and preventing him from working with other artists, due to his contractual obligation to G-Unit.
"His reaction, being so harsh, is to basically stall me out to a position where I lose everything, to where my numbers drop," Young Buck told the Nashville Scene in a new interview. "Because if you don't have a new product out, then you can't go get the big dollar for your shows. [He wants] to pretty much destroy my life from a silent-sided way of doing things. That's his angle, and my contracts allow him to be able to do that."
Young Buck stated that he is still very much in demand as an artist and has had the opportunity to work with a variety of artists, including longtime affiliate Lil Wayne.
But 50 Cent is allegedly preventing Young Buck from making guest appearances, which would raise his profile in addition to putting money in his pocket.
"The problem is, I go to be a feature on their hit record, and then they have to go to 50 Cent to clear me on the record, and he says, 'No.' And they're looking like, 'Well, damn' – cause if it wasn't for that I would probably be on every record that's out right now, cause everybody and their mama reaches out and gives me support," a frustrated Young Buck said.
Despite the allegations against 50 Cent, Young Buck is continuing to push forward with his career.
In addition to releasing a variety of mixtapes, the rapper’s Young Buck Foundation will host a Celebrity All-Star weekend from August 27th-29th, to raise money for flood victims and for children who need school supplies.
