The announcement was made on legendary producer BattleCat's Instagram page this weekend. BattleCat—known for his work with west coast artists like Snoop Dogg, E-40, and Ice Cube—will handle most of the production duties himself.
Returning from prison time for violating terms of probation at the end of 2016, Young Buck has been steadily releasing new music—dropping two projects in 2017: 10 Street Commandments and 10 Toes Down.
After a falling out with 50 Cent in the late 2000s, Young Buck smoothed things out and has been on good terms with G-Unit in recent years. 50 Cent's role as executive producer is a sign their relationship remains on good terms. In the summer of 2017, he updated fans on the situation, saying, "Real shit never die. G-Unit ain’t going no fucking where period. Straight up." Buck added, "Quit asking me if there’s a fucking problem with me and 50 Cent. That’s my fucking brother."
To get a sense of the direction he's heading in for the new album, you can hear "Can't Lose" featuring Twanee below.
