Young Buck talks 50 Cent ordeal and moving on with his career with XXL

For the next eighteen months, Young Buck will have the chance to think long and hard about the choices he made in life. A series of unfortunate events led to Young Buck being sentenced to prison. The former G-Unit rapper joins the likes of T.I., Lil Wayne, Ja Rule, and Lil’ Boosie, along with many others, as rappers who have gone to prison.

Young Buck has spoken to XXL on several occasions about what he is going through and what he has planned for the future. It has been four years since Young Buck took his issues with 50 Cent public. From the beginning, Young Buck presented himself as “the most loyal nigga in the Unit,” but began to stray as he focused on solo ventures.

50 Cent made himself one of the most-hated rappers in the game, taking shots at nearly everyone. After each rapper left G-Unit, they began to work with a number of the rival artists. Young Buck revealed his admiration of Nas and spent time with Jadakiss a year before the breakup.

During his latest XXL interview, Young Buck revealed he has no issues with 50 Cent and would be open to having a phone conversation with him, but doubted the good it would do with him going to prison. Young Buck spoke on being ousted from G-Unit, but being stuck on the label, saying it was all on 50 Cent, but he wished things did not get blown out of proportion. Six years have passed since Young Buck said he spoke to 50 Cent. During this time, he has not seen or heard from 50 Cent.

Though open to speaking with 50 Cent again, Young Buck’s only focus is closure, as he sees his time with G-Unit as the past. What may be in the future for Young Buck is one of 50 Cent’s top rivals, Rick Ross and Maybach Music. Praising Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and the movement, Young Buck said he would love to be a part of the MMG movement. Young Buck also revealed Birdman has been very helpful during his situation and he spent time with him, in addition to speaking with Snoop Dogg and Warren G.

When he gets out of prison, Young Buck said he would be more than ready to release a new album, as he has over six years of material prepared for the new project. Young Buck said he could release a new album every eighteen months, given the amount of music he has from recording at least twice a day.
