50 Cent and Young Buck are almost totally estranged these days. Their latest spat has to do with money.
But it isn't the first time the two have been at odds. During a VladTV interview, Buck explained the genesis of his problems with Fif go back to his 2007 album Buck The World and his relationship with his manager and producer Sha Money XL.
"It started with that project. Because what happened was Sha Money and 50 started to have their problems in the midst of me making the Buck The World album. Their issues, from my understanding, was about money. And 50 immediately started to bring me and the guys together in the rooms in the office and say things like, 'look, y'all going to have to find another manager'. At the time, Sha was the president of the company, the manager of me, Banks and Yayo. The producer, he did everything ... and all of sudden he and 50 don't see eye to eye. Which put me a position where I had to make a decision on whether I'm going to continue with him being my manager."
Buck went on to say he was extremely close with Sha and was the best man at his wedding. So he refused to fire him, whereas Banks and Yayo listened to 50 and cut ties.
"I made the decision to stay with Sha, and 50 is treating me like an outcast to the group," Buck said.
