Young Buck says his beef with 50 Cent was part of an elaborate plan.
During a recent Instagram Live session, Buck claimed that his long-running feud with his former G-Unit groupmate was staged and that he and 50 masterminded it to appear as though they had beef.
“We ain’t got no motherfu**in’ beef. This is what you motherfu**ers get ’cause you always chasing this beef shit,” said Buck. “And then we done played y’all motherfu**in’ ass….We win because we made all you motherfu**ers think that it’s beef and we don’t like each other.”
Their “beef” dates back to 2008 after 50 claimed Buck had not been loyal to G-Unit and kicked him out of the group. They reconciled in 2014, but things took a turn in recent years when 50 trolled Buck on social media for his alleged relationship with a transgender partner.
Buck, who claimed that 50 wouldn’t let him out of his G-Unit contract without paying $300,000, even took shots at 50 on 2019’s “Foofy Freestyle,” on which he claimed to have written songs for the “Power” producer.
But Buck says he and 50 are having the last laugh. “That’s what you motherfu**ers get, man. You motherfu**ers is crazy out here, bro,” he said, according to HipHop-N-More. “This social media shit got you people fu**ed, man. Y’all got played this time. We sat down and master planned this shit out. 50 was like, ‘I’m gonna say all kinds of shit about you, ni**a. I’ma make them fu**in’ hate you. Then you gon’ make ’em love you again.’”
According to Buck, the plan worked. “I guess the ni**a was right ’cause they love me again. And I did it…I made ’em love me again.”
He says that he and 50 are on good terms and that they even shot a music video this week, which they plan to debut soon. As for 50, he has yet to address Buck’s claims.
