: It appears that 50 Cent may be swindling members of his G-Unit label. MediaTakeOut.com has just learned that, in a recent interview with popular internet magazine YoRaps.com, Young Buck claims that he's not being paid royalties by 50's label.
Here's a direct quote from Buck:
A lot of artists don’t recoup off of albums, so a lot of times they never get to see the backend from that project. I’m the only artist on G-Unit that ever recouped off of an album. Meaning I went off on this "Buck The World" project not owing Interscope and G-Unit sh*t, I can say that much.
I’m still waiting on a royalty check period. I never seen a royalty check since I’ve been signed with G-Unit ... I’ve never in my career cashed a royalty check, how you like that? Put that one in big black letters n*gga!
Dang .... You know 50 won't stand for Buck talkin' sideways about their business to the press...
Well sh!t Fif gives them money left and right so I guess he does give it to them just not in the form of like a real royalty check! Get what um saying? All the G-Unit artists say he takes care of them so were is this coming from?
WELL 50 NEED TO PAY THAT MAN HE ALWAYS TALKIN BOUT HE GOT MONEY BUT NEVER WANNA PAY NOBODY, THATS EXACTLY WHY HE AINT BEAT KANYE CUZ N*GGAS AINT FEELIN HIM LIKE THAT NO MORE. OH AND NEW SINGLE WACKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK
top 20! lol shoot i heard it do that to all his members but if this is true, and it's such a big deal to him, then why dont he jus leave?! young buck would do good on his own, shit game did! lloyd banks and goin nowhere, and neither is tony yayo...young buck is better off on his own!
To all inspiring artist' that want to go major...... Never ever sign to a record label when the biggest rapper on the label is your boss.....Jay-Z- Def Jam.....Diddy(well he doesn't rap)...Bad Boy.... 50 Cent- G-unit....Luda- Disturbing the Peacr...ya dig me
THANK YOU FOR MAKING SO MUCH SENSE EARLY IN THE MORNING... I DON'T BE POSTING ON HERE BUT TODAY I HAD TO...
I GUESS YOU FOLKS CAN'T READ, YOUNG BUCK WAS SHOWING OFF, WHEN YOU HEAR STARS GETTING ROYALTY CHECKS, THAT MEANS THERE CAREERS IS OVER, BUCK IS SAYIN HE STILL CASHING IN ON HIS SHIT, STUPIDS... DAMN YOU BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO PICK UP A BOOK & STOP DROOLING OVER WHAT MTO SAY... READ BETWEEN THE LINES
Buck is b!tch thats why he dont get royalty checks, so all that he real and this and that is Bull$hit cuz if he been with them why he aint go at 50 about his paper no instead he pull a snitch move and go to a magazine and cry like a whore, If I was 50 i wouldn't give'em $hit his music if you can call it that sucks anyway. I hope he does leave and go back to CashMoney so his dumb@ss really will be broke with no checks.
"How you from Cashville but you dont got no Cash ni99a, Said my name now thats youre f#ckin ass Ni99a."
"And you got robbed for ur spinnin G-Unit chain in Chicago, I called my ni99a JoeJoe to get it back, He had the $hit in his hands and you didn't have the ten stacks, Picture That"
I love Buck, but how can you get royalities when your albums sales suck!!! Make a hit "album" (not a hit song), do a couple of interviews on 106 & park, TRL, MTV or whatever and when the real money comes in you'll get some of it.
Ya'll could have gotten a better picture of him. He looks zoned out and high in that picture. You guys should have used the one from when he was at the Grammys all cleaned up.
What money is he going to get? Does he have an album out?
50 BEEN STOP GIVING THEM MONEY LAST YR IF U READ LAST YR VIBE MAG WITH 50 ON THE COVER 50 SAYS THAT HE SPEND ABOUT 4MIL ON THEY ALBUMS AND IT FLOPS THEN THEY STOP WEARING HIS G-UNIT CLOTHES N SNEAKS SO 50 SAID FUKK IT GET YA OWN MONEY.

I WANNA KNOW WHAT 50 THINKS ABOUT THIS LOL.
Hey YoungBuck, it's called "Welcome to the music business". These guys only think "music" and forget the "business" aspect of it. That's where 50 (love him or hate him) is a certified genius. 50 is going to get his, you just better shore up your end and get yours. Dog eat Dog my friends.
Ever heard of Colonel Tom Parker? He was Elvis first manager and this guy used to take FIFTY PERCENT of his earnings and took it for quite a while until Elvis could fire his ass, this has been going on ever since the business world figured out people would pay to see someone perform.
I'm not a 50 Cent fan, but don't blame him, he's only doing what his white contemporaries have been doing for years. If you want to work hard only to get raped for cash, then the music industry is just for you. The Powers-that-be make money, the artists beg for scraps and hope they get treated fairly. This all could have been avoided with Buck hiring an entertainment lawyer to look out for his best interests, the minute he signed with G-Unit.
Don't cry broke now Buck, because now it's too late. You're not getting that money, it's already spent my friend.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
OH MAN....MTO...YOU jUST ADDiNG GAS TO THE FiRE FOR 50 CENT AND WHOEVER. HE STEADY HAVE BEEF WiTH EVERYBODY...GEEZ! LOL.
BUCK...iF i WERE YOU...i'D COME BACK TO NASHViLLE AND CHiLL OUT! YOU KNOW 50 GONNA HUNT THAT A$$.
Yo, we at The Shop all agree that Buck is the only cat in G Unit who has atleast some talent (besides Mobb Deep).
If any of U ladies think you "got the look" and wanna chance at being in The Shop Magazine, go to our MySpace spot, get the email address off the page and email us....NO UGG MUGGS!!!
i don't like to judge or hate especially on my people(unless yo azz really deserve it) but if summa yall ladies on buck like that? i never knew women thought he was all that? i must be americas next top male model then
I don't get it? He ahd a huge cain that spun...dimond filled etc...had to be worth a goo 100,000...Then he said he had a Bently he only drove once that 50 bought him...thats $250,000 right there...Thats $350,000 that you could have in your account? What happened?
YaYo is 50's boy 4 life...the eternal hype man thats a millionaire without selling anything. I wish I had his job...He got it made.
Banks is the truth on mixtapes.
50 gave them all up front money so unless their royalties are more than what he gave them(which it's not), they don't get paid. Actually, 50 lost money on the deals. Especially with Mobb Deep and the others where he gave millions in a signing bonus. Guess Buck forgot to say that.
I have to agree with nextbestthing on this one- what I got out of it is that he has made enough money to not have to cash a royalty check, hence the way he didn't owe his labels anything when the album was made. Now, I could be wrong, but i think that artists usually start cashing royalty checks when they are no longer getting money. I do believe MTO and 90% of posters are reading this wrong because even though I dislike 50, i didn't hear buck say a cross word about him.
And to the poster that asked what happened to Olivia- 50 dropped her for poor album sales and she had a baby.
They should pass a law for swagga jackaz and agrivated stunta'z. 50 should be tha first to be arrested. First, he didn't like ja rule. I can't lie, he killed dudes career but he didn't do that nicca sh!t. Then Kanye. Stuntin like he gone do him something. The list goes on and on.
Tha nicca even jackin yayo and buck swag. At first he was on some 21 questions, many men, in tha club sh!t. Now he on some I still will k!ll, gangsta, King 50 sh!t. This nicca probably go with marcus houston. I don't hate an a nicca gettin his money, but when you create FAKE BEEF to sell records and call yourself a gangsta, then I call it like I see it.
MTO why did you guys delete sentences from the quote to make it look like he was getting at 50/G-Unit. You people are horrible journalist and should give people the true story/quotes not just what you want the public to believe that is why this site SUCKS!!!!!!! Here is the real quote:
"A lot of times a lot of artists don’t recoup off of albums so a lot of times they never get to see the backend from that project. I’m the only artist on G-Unit that ever recouped off of an album meaning I went off on this "Buck The World" project not owing Interscope and G-Unit shit, I can say that much. I’m still waiting on a royalty check period, I never seen a royalty check since I’ve been signed with G-Unit. So hell yeah I’ll tell you one damn thing the show money is that good. I’ve never in my career cashed a royalty check, how you like that? Put that one in big black letters n*gga!“
I'm reading all the Bitching an complaining about what 50 has done to Young Buck, but I haven't heard not one complaint about your Pres. George W. Bush who has been fucking all of you for the past (8) years. As for as the situation with these two men, neither of you know what type of agreements were made or anything, you just feel the need to run off at the mouth. Shit, thats Buck's dumb ass if he didn't know how to handle up. He was with Cash Money for a period of time, so his ass should have learned something about the business. In know way am I co-signing for 50, because I don't like his ass since he wanted to diss my nig Lil Wayne- when you dissed Wayne you dissed Louisiana, so fuck you for that. Now what I'm talking bout is personal- what 50 done to Buck's (if its true) is business.
Well this is why education is important. Even hustlers have to know math. Entertainers have to know how to handle their business. Even if in a group say to yourself how will things turn out if we break up. During the good times you still need your own people to handle your individual affairs and people to check their numbers. Life is not a game. People don't care how you eat.
now we know 50 don't like when his B/I/T/C/H/E/S talk to the press...buck you seen what happened to the game so watch your lip.....don't talk greassy about your master like that....your his bottom b/i/t/c/h so ack like it...LOL of course you get paied you get to play with his nuts....so whats the problem.
I agree with HotBunny....Ignorant people don't think about business first, they get greedy and think about the money first. Later wanna point fingers, and don't know who they should be really pointing a finger at.
I love 50 and his camp...That will never change, I still have love for Buck.....
I love to see what he do now with Cash Money Millionaires.....Especially when he said he don't condone 2 men kissing on the lips.....
Buck and Game are so sucker ass Niiiiggaaaassss......
Say what you want....stop hatin...all of ya'll
Buck has to get an attorney and read contracts before he signs them. Goodness!
You have to get fully informed before signing anything. Protect your rights before you sign or enter anything - not complain on news cast for MTO hype.
I agree with you 100%
BOTTOM LINE IS THIS, HAVE YOUR BUSINESS INTEREST AND LEGAL MATTERS TIGHT AND READY BEFORE YOU SIGN YOUR LIFE AWAY TO RECORDING CONTRACT....THEY GET THESE FOOLS BY WAVING ADVANCES IN THEIR FACE....WHICH ARE REALLY DIRTY LOANS....
That fool need to stop getting so dam high tha truth is 50 owns all Buck's publishing I am from Nashville where Buck is from and that nigga is broke. He had an opportunity to have his own label (G-Unit South) but fucked it up by getting high all the time and always having hoes around him. This nigga in Nashville had a dam show in a busted ass club trying to charge everybody $85 per person cause his stupid ass is broke he needs to shut the fuck up.This nigga around here playing... 50 gave all them fools an opportunity to make money like him but they were lazy and fucked around and got dropped cause he got tried of taking care of them.. oh yeah he does have a label 615 records but I don't think it will go anywhere...
It is called the music BUSINESS. There is the muisc side and the business side.
You never allow another person to get your money. That is something that you can only depend on yourself for. There is NO such thing as loyalty when it comes to money aka he's my friend so I'll trust him to take care of me..
He should've got his money and shiot in order BEFORE he rapped a single verse.
That's why a certain laffy taffy group is here in the ATL beating up and threatening one of their ex members,because he's the one who wrote ALL their shiot and they are just now realizing the writer/producer gets FAR more paper than the rapper!
