DJ Scream and Big Bank share nothing but “Big Facts” in their podcast, as they chop it up with today’s popular figures in the entertainment industry.
On the latest episode of the “Big Facts” podcast, DJ Scream and Big Bank chop it up with rapper Young Buck. The former G-Unit member set the record straight on several topics including his longstanding beef with 50 Cent and his infamous hotel scandal.
It’s no secret that 50 Cent is perhaps the internet’s biggest bully. However, when it comes to his former group member, Young Buck, the Queens rapper takes his trolling expertise to new heights. When asked how their feud even came about, Buck revealed that the only logical answer he could conjure up was his past affiliations with other rappers 50 Cent deem enemies, including Fat Joe, Dipset, The Game, and many more.
So, in retaliation, 50 leaked a recording from a private phone conversation that featured an emotional Buck on the other end of the line. The rapper appeared to have since moved past the slightly awkward ousting, telling the group, “I was basically, you know, have that conversation on the facts of ‘let’s get this shit right.’ He added, “And that’s what the last words homie said in the conversation was ‘we gone get this shit right.’”
With the dust finally settled, the crew was back together. Buck was riding the wave of his second studio album, Buck the World, when his feud with 50 reignited. A vintage interview in which Buck divulged that he wasn’t adequately compensated and hadn’t received a royalty check from the G-Unit founder resurfaced, thrusting 50 into another fit of anger and Buck was subsequently kicked out of the group.
As most stories go, Buck’s contract wasn’t the best, making business dealings even more complicated when it came time to cash out. Still, he thanked 50 for the opportunity and the platform, despite his constant online taunting.
Moving forward, Buck attempted to set the record about claims he made, stating that he was catfished and embarrassed by a transgender woman. “The camera was set up to get me,” the rapper explained. “The plot was to have me in there… the transgender [person], whatever the case may be, perform whatever acts, and then they were going to use it, of course, to try to extort me for whatever reason. Shit, I guess the plan ain’t go as planned.”
Buck claimed that at the time of the scheduled meet-up, once he realized that the person he had been messaging back and forth was not who they appeared to be, he thought he was being set up to be robbed. “I’m too busy stuck looking at the god damn door, but when I walked in, I’m already cheating on my bitch. The first thing I say to a motherfucker is eat this motherfucker up,” he said. Buck said he never thought twice about the situation until it resurfaced almost a year or two after it had occurred.
He continued, “When the shit hit the airwaves, I’m like. ‘What the fuck is this?’” Buck said with the help of a friend, he was able to find the individual and discuss the situation over the phone. “My first words of that conversation… it was chopped up… I done listen to a little bit of it. Motherfucker done chopped it up… they chopped the conversations up because it was only one fucking conversation, but it was released in different bits and pieces behind whatever the person was saying. When I said what I said in the conversation, my first words was, ‘Look, I don’t know you, and you don’t know me. Whatever the fuck you got going on, this shit gone come back on you.’ I’m handling it from that perspective. Motherfucker got quiet for probably like two or three seconds, and the first words that came out the mouth was, ‘I need two thousand dollars, and I’ll take this shit down.’” Buck cited a feud with a former associate that trickled on social media that blew the situation out of proportion. Once it started affected his family, Buck vowed to never address the incident again after leaving “Big Facts.”
Buck went on to make several more claims, including 50 Cent’s deliberate lack of acknowledging what the rapper brought to the label as an artist and allegations that Buck wrote for him. “I wrote 50 music bro, I done wrote full songs where you niggas is listening to 50 rap my words — word for word. A nigga might change one [word] here or a line here, but if you listen to the ‘Too Rich’ song, that’s just off my head. One I inked from top to bottom.”
When asked about what role he might’ve played in the demise of his friendship and partnership with the “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” rapper, Buck said, “I didn’t give off the energy that I should’ve gave off about business when I knew, in the inside, I had doubts about shit.” He added, “Instead, I just kept it in and played this role when I should’ve been man enough to just speak my mind and I let it build up. I think I should’ve just spoke my mind at the time. I was too [fearful] of a nigga doing what he ended up doing any goddamn way.”
Buck also touched on his support of emcees from the south and working with Birdman before he signed to G-Unit.
