AllHipHop.com: How did you come out about speaking to Game to dead the beef?
Young Buck: I was on a promotional tour for radio. I was making sure
that all my records get played around, being I got a hit record Get
Buck. Once I got to L.A., the politics of the music had people kind of
f**ked up due to the drama [from] G-Unit and Game. My spins wasnt
powerful out there, so I had go to see why. I had number one spins
everywhere else, but in L.A., Felli Fel was pretty much explaining to
me how a lot of DJs were looking at it and he asked me if I would be up
to speaking to Game on the phone. If that’s what it takes to get some
understanding to make sure my music can be played everywhere, then
let’s do it. Thats pretty much what it was.
It was scheduled when dude was supposed to come up to the station and
sit down and be face-to-face, but they didnt want it to go down like
that. So we did it over the phone. Yo, when I spoke to Game, Im going
to be real, it wasnt no f**ked up conversation, [there was] no
disrespect from his end or my end. Honestly, he was speaking on
suggestions of what it would be like if we were to rock on tour
together, and how much would we be making and all this good stuff. And
at this point, he just wanted to make records and he was telling me
some of the reasons why he had said some of things towards me – because
he had a record coming out. He didnt really have reasons to diss 50,
but he wanted to make sure his album could come out, just a lot of
different things. We left the conversation on a note where you do you,
without mentioning us and we do us, without mentioning you.
But s**t, bro, not even a couple of days later, he was right back to
dissing a n***a, doing mixtape records, which for me, was a slap in the
face. It was like, Oh s**t, man, I just had this conversation [with]
you and made an effort at least not do nothing because the beef aint
with me, it started my homeboy 50, who Im down with to the end. And I
just made an effort to try to get an understanding out of the s**t and
[he] agreed with it, [so to] then going against it, [just] shows the
bi-polar in him. The world starts to understand the G-Unit arent so
much the aggressors in the situation. I think he feels thats the way
to keep [The Doctors Advocate]
alive. We were just talking about selling a record; Ive never been a
n***a to fall in that position. [The Game] thinks he can go out there
and diss a female like Vida Guerra and gain some attention, when in
reality, a real n***a is looking [at it] like, Nah, what are you
doing? A female that cant rap or got nothing do with anything at
AllHipHop.com: You actually went to 50 to dead the beef with Game?
Young Buck: In the beginning, I was the first one to ever speak to 50
about the whole the s**t. Back then, when the situation first started,
I was dealing with hearing Games whole conversation with Spider Loc
off the phone, and Spider was like, Listen and put the phone on
speaker. I would hear Game saying, Im ready to wave the white towel
before s**t get crazy, Im through with this s**t. So I would hear
enough coming from Games mouth on Spider Locs phone and that I went
to 50 and told him this dude didnt want any problems. I told him Game
wanted to wave the white towel, and you know what 50 told me, bro?
AllHipHop.com: Go ahead.
Young Buck: He looked me right in my eye and said, Im not f**king
with it. I was looking at 50 the first time like, Damn bro, this
n***a talking about waving the white towel, so why you aint f**king
with it, maybe you tripping a little bit? 50 said, Ill give him a
week before he’s on the radio doing something else. It wasnt even two
days later, your man Game was on the radio back at it already.
AllHipHop.com: Do you think Game was leaning on DJs out in the West Coast so they wouldnt play your record?
Young Buck: I dont think Game got enough power to make the West Coast
just stop any G-Unit record. I think the fact of them not knowing how
the situation is makes them hesitant going into a situation where they
have to live out there. Its like you coming into my city and you a DJ
from Cashville supporting everything that Game is doing knowing how
real s**t is. I just wanted the DJs to see for themselves that its not
us and I think they see that now, by him showing his bi-polar side. He
didnt only burn me by going back two days later dissing me after our
conversation on the phone, I think he burned n***as like Felli Fel and
all the DJs that help that situation [too].
AllHipHop.com: What about that interview where 50 said he puts you in
the same vein as a Game after you made up with his enemies.
Young Buck: That came from two different conversations, bro. 50 spoke
and said what he said on the radio pretty much on Yayo putting his
hands on the kid. I just did an interview on the radio and a lot of
people took it as I was saying Yayo was guilty. I said I dont agree
with no man putting his hands on a kid, and at the time, there was so
much tension with Yayo putting his hands on a child. I know that Yayo
had no involvement on putting his hands on that mans son.
So 50 came back and pretty much said what [he] had to say, he put a
little bit on it, but [I] respect it because thats my boss. I could
never walk away or disconnect that I help create as far as G-Unit. So
for me, bro, Im going to make it real clear for you before we get into
all of that s**t. The minute you see me away from G-Unit will be death
or jail, and God forbid them both. This is something more than music
for Buck. I put my life on the line for this s**t, so it aint a walk
away thing. 50, Yayo, Banks, Buck will be together until this
muthaf**ker blows up. So that pretty much ice-waters everything you may
have to say.
AllHipHop.com: Did you hear back from Yayo since the incident?
Young Buck: Yeah, we done spoke and now we speaking a little bit closer
now. Because I think thats what created a lot of the s**t, like our
communication got off a little bit. We all got our own s**t going on we
dont get to communicate like we always done. Situations like that only
make you closer especially when you’re not the one involved in it and
actions is being taken out on you. And you looking at s**t like, Hold
up, my n***a.
AllHipHop.com: Did Sha leaving G-Unit records have anything to do with all thats been happening?
Young Buck: Sha Money didnt get fired from G-Unit, Sha Money left
behind 50 and Sha choosing to make his move to where its at. Sha
thinks he is more hands on being out in the field and working with me.
Sha Money is my manager, rather than being at the office, being
president of a company. Management is where he enjoys it more, thats
the direction 50 allowed for Sha Money to take. It aint no beef
between Sha and 50, none of that s**t.
AllHipHop.com: You just put that Teach Them About Playing featuring
C-Bo. In the first verse, it seems like you going in hard at 50 but
then you say You know I die for this G Unit s**t, so what you saying 50?
Young Buck: Im just letting the world know and Im letting 50 know
where my heart is invested at, and Ill die for this s**t. I was pretty
much asking 50 what you want me to do, whats the direction? Like tell
me when to go, not in the sense of what you are saying. Because when I
punch the button, homeboy
AllHipHop.com: Did 50 hear the record?
Young Buck: Yeah, he enjoyed the record.
AllHipHop.com: You had a brief stint at Cash Money Records when you
were riding with Juvenile. I remember last year you commented on the
infamous Lil Wayne and Baby incident. Can you elaborate?
Young Buck: I never seen Juvenile or B.G. or even Turk push that line
of kissing, Ive only seen Wayne. Yeah, I seen Wayne personally do it a
few times. I seen him do it from the perspective of being on 106th and Park,
when they did it on the couch and one time on the tour bus. The first
time I ever seen that s**t, they did it on the bus when I was traveling
amongst them. Honestly, Im not going to sit here and lie to you, it
f**ked me up, bro! Like it was a game going on or something between
them. The n***a was like, Give me a kiss, n***a, and I was like,
What the f**k?
[After that], I went on the other bus – the shark bus with all the
goons. I was a broke n***a, so I stayed in my atmosphere at the time,
you feel me? [Laughs] Wayne stayed on Babys bus. But at the end of the
day, to each his own, in a situation like that, a real n***a like me, I
aint with it. I spoke on it to say what it is, but theres no beef
between me and Lil Wayne, I have no problems with him. I actually just
spoke with Lil Wayne about doing the remix to my Get Buck record and
he agreed to [do it].
AllHipHop.com: Have you spoken to Baby?
Young Buck: I havent spoken to Baby at all. Even when I spoke to
Wayne, I told him let Baby know I said what up and he said he would.
AllHipHop.com: What was like meeting up with Jadakiss?
Young Buck: At the end of the day, it was nothing f**ked up about it.
We paid tribute to Bob Marley and put a couple up in the air, and kept
it moving. It is what it is, it wasnt no disrespectful s**t.
AllHiphop.com: So you just bumped into him at the V.I.P.?
Young Buck: I dont want to say actually whose room he was at, because
that would get that NBA player in trouble since we were all smoking and
s**t. Kiss was in that room and I had knowledge he was over there so I
AllHipHop.com: So when you walked in the door, was it tense?
Young Buck: It wasnt tense, it was just a quiet moment though. [Laughs]
AllHipHop.com: You could hear a pin drop?
Young Buck: Yeah definitely a quiet moment where you can hear a pin
drop and everything went back to what it was. It wasnt any extra s**t.
I just sat in front of him and pretty much asked him how he was looking
at it. He said he wasnt tripping and just wanted to get to the money.
