Young Buck has spoken candidly about his strained relationship with 50 Cent, revealing that he doesn’t understand why the rap mogul has been targeting him for years.
The former G-Unit member, who was once signed to 50’s label, shared his thoughts on the ongoing feud during an interview with Steve-O on his podcast Wildride!
According to Buck, 50 Cent has been trying to force him into bankupcy. The rapper is believed to be owing 50 Cent some unpaid money which he owes him and 50 is trying to get his money back.
“I don’t know what I did to make him want to see me not feed my children,” Buck said. “50’s his own person, but I would never wish death or wanna see him not be able to feed his family. Yeah, we had our misunderstandings — I don’t even call them beefs.”
Buck added that he still had respect for 50 as an artist and a businessman, but he couldn’t comprehend why he was trying to ruin his reputation and career.
“But to do some of the things that he’s done in attempt to try to discredit my name, discredit me as a person, to damage my character and put out all these false narratives of different things in regards to certain craziness that I’ve went through.”
He continued: “It’s just like, ‘You rich, my man. You still doing your thing. I love your TV show Power, you know what I mean? Why are you doing this to me?! Bruh, we was once brothers. I’ve always looked at you as big brother.”
Buck also compared 50’s animosity towards him to his infamous rivalry with Ja Rule, who he famously dissed and overshadowed in the early 2000s.
“‘Yes, I’ve made mistakes too but I’ve never done anything to try to take food out of your mouth or stop you from eating.’ To see how aggressive he is towards me makes me feel like, ‘Damn, are you trying to Ja Rule me, too?!’”
Buck said that he hoped to resolve his issues with 50 one day, but he wasn’t holding his breath
