As it turns out, Buck claims he was shot because he always kept in touch with 50 people he considered enemies. 50 started feuding at that time with a variety of rappers and hip-hop crews.
Buck tells the host in a recent interview with Vlad TV that he first learned of the shooting from friends who heard 50 talk about it in radio interviews.
“As soon as he kicked me out, I was like, ‘What the f**k is this about?’ He started saying it was because I’m cool with Game and these different things started happening – I’m cool with his enemies,” he said.
But Buck claims 50 has misinterpreted it all.
“It wasn’t that, it’s that I’m active, so I would run into these individuals – the Jim Jones, the Dipset individuals, the Jadakisses, when we had these beefs or whatever,” he explained. “And you know what I got to hear from those guys, ‘Bro, we f**k with you, we just don’t f**k with you.’ It was one of those things where it’s kind of hard for you to have a problem with someone who really doesn’t have a problem with you, but maybe has a problem with your brother.”
He continued, “I didn’t go and make friends with them and I even passed it on to 50…. I guess he felt I was cool with them because I always told 50.”
Yung Buck says G-Unit’s firing forced him to file for bankruptcy

The bill was getting higher and Buck had no idea what to do, leaving him with large tax debts and no income to pay them back.
Buck says that’s when the infamous phone call from 50 was leaked, which made matters worse.
