Young Buck Claims He Filed Bankruptcy Because 50 Cent Was Stopping His Bag

50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Young Buck were once part of the rap collective G-Unit, whose music dominated the hip-hop charts. However, childish feuds and lousy business dealings quickly led to the end of one of the hottest hip-hop groups.

While Fif found success in television with several shows on Starz networks, the other two haven’t been as fortunate, specifically Buck, who claims he was forced to file for bankruptcy because of the “Power” boss.

During an interview on the “It’s Tricky with Raquel Harper” podcast, the “Shorty Wanna Ride” emcee accused Fif of trying everything in his capability to try to stop Buck from work, including releasing music. 

According to TMZ, the star ultimately filed for bankruptcy because the “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” rapper sent multiple cease-and-desist letters to stop him from releasing any music. However, the entertainer isn’t looking to reunite with his former collaborator. 

“We at a standstill; I’m definitely not looking to go down a whole long, drawn-out court situation, things like that, when it could all get handled and be done on a business level if we had that conversation to get that clarity,” he explained. “He could get whatever he’s looking for from me; I can get what I’m needing from him. I can move on with my life and continue feeding my kids. He could do the same.” 

The rapper added, “Like I said, my biggest situation was the fact that he sent cease-and-desist out to try to stop all of my music and get everything pulled down based on saying I’m still an artist on G-Unit.”

“Once he stopped me from being able to make money, I filed another bankruptcy,” he continued. “They stopped him from being able to cease-and-desist in regards to me being able to, you know… I included what he claimed that I owed him in the bankruptcy to be able to say, ‘Well, hey, if you’re owed this and present whatever receipts or whatever… You will be paid type of situation.’ But that was the only way I was able to go forward with working, so.”

Fif has yet to address the allegations. However, last February, he didn’t miss the opportunity in a since-deleted Instagram post to troll the “Stay Fly” rapper over his arrest for vandalism in Nashville, Tennessee.
