“I’d like to forget the G-Unit.” Who would have thought that these words would be uttered by the G-Unit general himself 50 Cent, especially after a successful reign in music for some years. They would dominate the charts with both group albums and solo efforts, all reaching gold and platinum status. The group’s successes wouldn’t come without much dissension, with members leaving the group, and ultimately disbanding, with the majority of the line-up not on speaking terms.
The “In Da Club” rapper hasn’t been on good terms with the Game since 2005 after tensions arose between the two and escalated into a public feud that would span for years. 50 Cent met Young Buck and quickly signed him to the Unit, however, after releasing music, they would also become embroiled in a feud that would last for years, and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down any time soon.
Over the years 50 Cent has become more than just a rapper but a budding TV/film mogul as well, having become involved in the highly acclaimed “Starz” show Power. The latest show to hit the network, P-Valley, has also received massive acclaim from viewers. While celebrating news of the announcement that the show would receive a second season, the rapper chose to also extend some shade towards his former artist.
“Season 2 ok young buck gonna sue them for putting his life on screen,” said 50 Cent. “Little murder is all him. LOL,” referring to a character on the show that is a rapper who happens to become romantically involved with the non-binary character Uncle Clifford. This isn’t the first time the rapper has extended = jokes towards Buck’s direction. Earlier this year, Fif publicly asked Buck on social media whether this year’s pride parade would be canceled, due to the pandemic. “Hey is 2020 gay pride parade cancelled [sic]? asking for a friend, young Buck. LOL,” he said.
The comments didn’t miss Young Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, who addressed his former boss’s claims earlier this year in an interview with Adam22 of the No Jumper podcast. “Him going so hard with the gay sh*t … I laugh at that. I’m very secure of who I am,” said Buck, who also addressed similar remarks over the years. “Overall … my separation from G-Unit, it was never about no rumors or none of the bullsh*t he’s pushed out there to the people. It’s been about business.”
Adam22 also suggested that 50 possibly didn’t want his former signees to reach a level where he could possibly be outshined. Young Buck explained he believes the Power star excessively trolls and creates the rumors about the rappers he beefs with as a means to “control their rating.” “Fifty, I think, I’ma just be honest… It seems like he wouldn’t allow someone to become as big as him or bigger than him,” the “Get Buck” rapper said.
