It’s been a tough time for former G-Unit rapper Young Buck, but it seems as if things are at least out in the open and that’s allowing him to get help.
Young Buck has been working to get free of his record contract with 50 Cent and his old label G-Unit Records. Buck reportedly filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy – in order to also get out from up under his G-Unit contract stipulations. 50 Cent has admittedly blocked Buck’s releases, one of the key drivers of his income potentially.
In the legal documents for his bankruptcy filing, Buck is reportedly disputing an undisclosed amount of money owed to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and G-Unit Records. In fact, it is written that he’s looking to “reject any and all executory contracts with G-Unit and/or Curtis Jackson,” validating the tactic he’s using in hopes of extricating himself from 50 Cent monetarily.
Young Buck previously said that 50 blocking his success is something that he’s always done to all the group members of G-Unit. “What I’m saying is that, you know, 50, I think, Imma just be honest, it seems like, wouldn’t allow nobody to become just as big as him or bigger than him. Honestly.” Buck shared this view on No Jumper podcast very recently, highlighting how he’s still dealing with 50 Cent’s toxic view of the world – which 50 has highlighted on his own Instagram.
Now that the dire state of his finances have leaked due to amended and updated bankruptcy court documents obtained by Bossip, Young Buck has openly come out and asked his fans for assistance.
“Listen up world, I just seen in the headlines what they were saying, I only got $100 in my pocket, I only got $100 worth of clothes, $100 worth of jewelry — s–t like that,” said the rapper in a new video. “I figure now is the perfect time to go there and start a GoFundMe. Send me $1, that’s all I need. Just $1, man.”
Young Buck took to his Instagram and posted his Cashapp nickname to facilitate easily allowing his fans to help him. While it’s unknown how much assistance he may have received from fans or others, Young Buck did take to his Instagram a few days later and tell people that he’d started a non-profit called “Give to Get.” Apparently, any donations people have sent are being used to help others – despite the fact that he put out the call for himself.
It seems as if all of G-Unit however isn’t mad or unforgiving at their old partner in rhyme. The Game took to his Instagram to make it known that he helped his old friend out – and of course, wanted to let everyone know.
The Game shared a screenshot of the amount that he sent to Buck via Cashapp, his requested form of receiving the $1 that he asked all his fans to send him on Instagram. Turns out The Game sent him 1,000 $1 bills electronically.
The Game also mentioned that he intends to do the same with another person in need, showing his true sense of charity extends to more than just the people that he knows. “Know we ain’t holla’d in years but I had to hit ya sh*t wit a band just on the strength. & I’m gone send another $1,000 to somebody young & black to help them out wit they situation this month !!!”
