Young Buck Decries Violence Against Kids, Squashes Beef With Game, Jadakiss
Buck said that he was unable to support the alleged action of his fellow G-Unit member during an interview with Angie Martinez of New York's Hot 97.
"I'ma be honest, I don't respect nobody putting no hands on no kid. I got a child myself. If somebody put they hands on mine, I understand the way it goes," Young Buck said yesterday (Mar. 26).
"In this situation, I don't understand the truth of it, but I don't rock with nothing that's under that circumstance about putting your hands on no kid. I'm a real street individual and it wouldn't matter if it was my crew or any other crew."
Tony Yayo was arraigned on Mar. 25 and charged with one count of misdemeanor assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor.
The alleged altercation took place between Yayo and the 14-year-old son of Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond, a rival. Tony Yayo allegedly backhanded the boy after seeing him in the street.
Young Buck related feelings to the mob code of leaving women and children out of the field of battle.
"It falls upon the individual. I maintain and do what I gotta do [but] I can't rock with nothing that's wrong. I can't say Yayo did it, but if he did it, its wrong," the 26-year-old said.
Nevertheless, Buck said that his comrade was innocent until proven guilty.
"Honestly, I'ma be real with it. I don't know. I'm out doing my thing and promoting my album and I heard the news. The details of the situation, I don't know exactly what happened. "
Buck has had his share beef in the past, but the rapper has recently expressed a desire for a more peaceful existence among his Hip-Hop peers.
Young Buck said that he and G-Unit rival The Game spoke and they made a resolution of peace over the phone.
"We just left the situation on the phone call on the note of ‘you do you without involving G-Unit and me in your music and we do us without involving you or what you got going in our music," Young Buck said. "And that’s the level we left the conversation on," the rapper said.
While may be cool with one another, fans should not expect a Young Buck/Game collaboration any time soon, despite rampant rumors.
"We ain’t had conversations on nothin’ like that. We’ve only spoke once," Young Buck stated. There may be a lot of different rumors sayin’ this and that, but we not even ready to be amongst each other at this point. Being that it’s such a real situation I think that we just ready at least, for each side to pretty much move on and then let it grow out into whatever else it’s supposed to be. But at least start from here."
In addition to the Game, Young Buck met up with another of 50 Cent’s rivals, Jadakiss, during his time in Las Vegas and inquired about the D-Block lyricist's feelings about G-Unit.
"I don’t come disrespectful. Not at all. I come as a man and I come prepared for whatever it may be," Young Buck said. "A lot of these records, when you're going back and forth, some of the motherfuckers feel like it’s real beef. But I’m here to see what it is for real. And you know Jada, he wasn’t trippin’. Jada's whole thing was 'look man. I’m not trippin’ off that shit. I’m getting money. I’m all about getting to the music and the money Buck.' We smoked a couple of blunts together and kept it movin.’ Real nigga shit."
