G-Unit, which included 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Young Buck, ruled the hip-hop charts with their music. However, juvenile feuds and shady financial transactions quickly brought one of hip-hottest hop’s groups to an end.
While Fif found success in television with several shows on Starz networks, the other two haven’t been as fortunate, specifically Buck, who claims he was forced to file for bankruptcy because of the “Power” boss.
The “Shorty Wanna Ride” emcee accused Fif of attempting everything in his power to keep Buck from working, including releasing songs, during an interview on the “It’s Tricky with Raquel Harper” podcast.
The star eventually filed for bankruptcy, according to TMZ, after the “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” rapper gave him repeated cease-and-desist letters preventing him from releasing any songs. The entertainer, on the other hand, has no desire to work with his former collaborator again.
“We at a standstill; I’m definitely not looking to go down a whole long, drawn-out court situation, things like that, when it could all get handled and be done on a business level if we had that conversation to get that clarity,” he explained. “He could get whatever he’s looking for from me; I can get what I’m needing from him. I can move on with my life and continue feeding my kids. He could do the same.”
The rapper added, “Like I said, my biggest situation was the fact that he sent cease-and-desist out to try to stop all of my music and get everything pulled down based on saying I’m still an artist on G-Unit.”
“Once he stopped me from being able to make money, I filed another bankruptcy,” he continued. “They stopped him from being able to cease-and-desist in regards to me being able to, you know… I included what he claimed that I owed him in the bankruptcy to be able to say, ‘Well, hey, if you’re owed this and present whatever receipts or whatever… You will be paid type of situation.’ But that was the only way I was able to go forward with working, so.”
The charges have yet to be addressed by Fif. However, in a since-deleted Instagram post from February, he took advantage of the chance to troll the “Stay Fly” rapper over his arrest for vandalism in Nashville, Tennessee.
