(AllHipHop News) Last week, G-Unit stopped by SiriusXM studios to preview their Beauty of Independence EP and reveal secrets of their past. In the hour long interview G-Unit speaks on the infamous taped crying Young Buck conversation, the new EP and more.
Back in 2008, 50 Cent released a taped phone conversation between himself and Young Buck with a crying Buck begging to be let back into G-Unit due to monetary issues. Days after the tape's release, Buck released a dis song towards 50 which had inflammatory lyrics towards 50:
Bit*h nigg*s do bit*h thangs/ Look at 50, what he do just to get fame/ Record my phone call when I spoke from the heart/ That was a year ago, this was a joke from the start/ You a ho, I know/ The only people that record conversations is 5-0.
Six years later during the SiriusXM special, Buck claims he never "felt no emotion" towards 50 Cent taping his phone conversation:
Honestly, to this day, I never felt no emotion or nothing bad. I think people took the part out of the conversation where I became emotional and made as if 'oh, Buck's crying. ' I've always looked at these as my brothers and at the time and everything I was speaking during that conversation was real.
50 Cent and G-Unit's career was founded on a form of copyright infringement as they are known for making unauthorized remixes of other artists' songs. 50 Cent says the decision to keep Drake on "Real Quick" was so fans "don't fall in love with what we did and don't like the actual artist":
"0 To 100", I got Drake to send it. [Laughs]. I called him. The record came out, I was like 'send me that record. I need that.' He sent it and then we chopped it up. That's why we didn't take him off it. We kept him on the record. So when you play it, you're still playing a version of Drake's record.
