Young Buck has sat down with several interviews with XXL. During these series of interviews, Buck has discussed his entire career. In the early 2000s, Young Buck rose to fame as the Southern member of G-Unit. Original G-Unit member, Tony Yayo, was in prison and Young Buck was essentially a replacement for him.
In 2008, Young Buck made his issues with 50 Cent public and the two exchanged disses throughout the year. The following year, Young Buck attempted to patch things up with 50 Cent in hopes of leaving G-Unit Records. Still, 50 Cent refused to release him from his contract and Young Buck reverted to mixtapes before his contract expired.
During his latest interview with XXL, Young Buck spoke on his upcoming prison sentence and confirmed he held no ill will toward 50 Cent. However, Young Buck did feel 50 Cent was wrong for not releasing him from his contract. Hip Hop Wired recently caught up with 50 Cent and he spoke on the situation of his former label-mate, saiyng he does feel bad for him, overall.
