50 Cent may not be showing Young Buck, his former G-Unit soldier, any love. But Buck is trying to show love to 50, his former boss.
In a video that was posted on YouTube on Tuesday (May 29), Buck is seen bopping his head and smoking to 50’s “Murder One” off his recently-released, DJ Drama-backed mixtape, The Lost Tape.
“Where Banks at? Which one is Banks on? Nowhere?” Buck asks in the beginning of the clip, perhaps sarcastically after 50 recently shared that he hasn’t spoke to Banks in nine months.
From there, though, Buck seems to enjoy the sound of ’Fif’s “Murder One” track, even complimenting 50’s artist, Kidd Kidd. After listening to 50, Buck begins to groove, listening to a track of his own.
Ironically, last month also had Buck saying that he was open to rejoining G-Unit, before the Wall Street Journal reported that 50 is trying to lay claim to his former protégé’s records.
“All compositions created by the debtor have already been irrevocably conveyed to [Curtis] Jackson (and Universal), and G-Unit retains irrevocable rights of ‘every kind and nature,’ including to rights to royalties, copyrights, to renew/extend copyrights and to causes of action,” 50’s attorneys wrote in documents obtained by the WSJ.
On May 21, Buck was evicted from his Tennessee mansion and a judge ordered that the proceeds from the house being sold go toward paying off the MC’s massive, $333,975.69 debt in unpaid taxes to the IRS.
In addition, earlier this month, Buck also learned that he’ll have to serve 18 months in prison on gun possession charges with his sentencing approaching on July 13.—Mark Lelinwalla
