Former G-Unit member Young Buck revealed in a recent interview that he and his former friend/bandmate 50 Cent are still at odds, and that 50 Cent is working diligently to ruin Buck's career. Since Buck was kicked out of G-Unit in 2008, the Memphis-born rapper and his former crew have been feuding. Now, 50 is allegedly using Buck's contractual obligations to prevent him from working with other artists in the industry. "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 said in a recent interview with Nashville Scene. "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."
The blacklisting is costing Young Buck money, though the rapper still releases mixtapes and makes appearances to keep himself in the public eye. "The problem is, I go to be a feature on [an artist's] 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."
