50 Cent and Young Buck have been at each other’s throats again after the latter suggested the former masterminded their beef, which was allegedly fake. Fif has denied that his issues with Buck, which range from him owing money to targeted transphobic trolling, and now Buck has attempted to clear the air on an episode of the Big Facts podcast for Revolt TV. Speaking with DJ Scream and Big Bank, Buck asserted once again that he ghostwrote for 50 Cent.
"I wrote 50 music, bro. I done wrote full songs where you n****s is listening to 50 rap my words," said Buck, per AllHipHop. "Word for word. The n***a might change one here or a line here, but when you listen to the 'Too Rich' song, that's just off of my head, that's just one I inked from top to bottom." This isn’t the first time Buck has asserted that he ghostwrote for 50 Cent. In 2019, he released a pair of diss tracks directed at the G-Unit leader in which he made similiar claims.
"I done this based on the fact of, well, he liked the record so much, he felt like he needed it for himself,” he said, which prompted one of the hosts to ask if he received credit or money for his contributions. "No. No credit, no nothing for it,” he said. “Just like the 'Can't Lose' record that was released under G-Unit. I ain't seen a check from that shit and G-Unit released that."
Elsewhere in the interview the rapper, who claimed early in the inteview that he’s been mostly independent since leaving G-Unit, almost immediately got into the question of whether their beef was, in fact, real. “It was all really an assist,” he said at the 3:00 mark, adding that it was mostly a joke. “Honestly I don’t look at the situation as a beef. … He been trying me.” He went on to assert there was issues before Fif directed transphobic memes at Buck after he allegedly dated a trans woman, and it was always more than that.
“He pushed me out of G-Unit,” he said, claiming that Fif was having issues with Sha Money XL but Buck wasn’t, and wanted to remain on good terms with Sha. He didn’t get too into specifics, but suggested that the issues came down to money. The issues first started around the time of Buck’s 2007 album Buck the World, which explains why he released They Don’t Bother Me just months later under a different record label.
They were able to sort out their issues initially, but when Fif heard that Buck said he didn’t see any royalty checks from G-Unit their relationship started to deteriorate again. He later found out he was kicked out of G-Unit when Fif announced it during a radio interview. Of course, this wasn’t even the last time he was kicked out of the group, but Buck says this is pretty much where all the issues started, and Fif was very controlling of his career in general.
Buck went on to talk about how the reunion later fell apart, but he also highlighted the other ways 50 Cent essentially failed him. Watch the full interview with Buck above.
