Young Buck Talks His Situation

Young Buck talks to Nashville Scene 

 Talks 50:
“His reaction, being so harsh, is to basically stall me out to a position where I lose everything, to where my numbers drop...[He wants] to pretty much destroy my life from a silent-sided way of doing things. That's his angle, and my contracts allow him to be able to do that." 

People reaching out:
“The problem is, I go to be a feature on their hit record, and then they have to go to 50 Cent to clear me on the record, and he says, 'No.' And they're looking like, 'Well, damn' — cause if it wasn't for that I would probably be on every record that's out right now, cause everybody and their mama reaches out and gives me support.” 

50 not meeting him halfway
“To this day 50 Cent has not been man enough to give me a conversation face-to-face or over the phone. I did everything a man could possibly do to try to grow some type of understanding. I come from the ghetto, from the streets. So taking a legal approach about things is not my way of doing business in the beginning. If we can do business without going that route I'm always down for it.” 

Buck doing country music:
“There's something that country music can introduce to this Hip Hop world, and there is something that this Hip Hop world can introduce to country music. For a long time I was biased to a lot of things of that nature because I didn't listen to it. I'm basically growing up and turning into a better artist and I'm trying to expand my music.”

Dame Dash interview with SOHH

Discusses Roc-a-fella break up:

Jay decided to sever business ties with his fellow founders; their stake in the company was sold back to Island Def Jam for a reported $10 million, while controlling interests in the remaining clothing, film, and alcohol ventures were sliced up. Jay signed a three-year contract to become president and CEO of Def Jam--a position he would leave in 2008 for Live Nation. He offered the rights to the name "Roc-a-Fella" to Dash and Biggs in exchange for the recording masters to Reasonable Doubt, but the pair wouldn't make the deal. "We all earned those masters," Dash says.This turn of events remains bewildering. "The people that I was helping, once they realized their dreams, they did what a criminal would do," Dash continues. "They stabbed you in the back. Think about the frustration of building a brand for years that should be taking care of your family, and then the person that was the closest to you saying, 'Nah, you can't have no parts of it,' and flushing it." (Village Voice)

Discusses Curren$y:
"[Curren$y] inspired me to dust off the chains. We brought 'em out for kicks, just 'cause we could. Then we was like, 'F--- it, let's put it out through Roc-A-Fella.' It was really more something he wanted to do. Basically, 'cause we havin' such a good time, and the opportunity's there, we was like, 'Why not?' ... Def Jam or Universal bought the brand. I think the 'beef' [with us and Jay-Z] was that Jay made it clear he didn't want me or Biggs to be a part of it. That's really where it was at. Now that he doesn't work for Def Jam anymore, he doesn't have the right to use the name. So there's no reason for us not to use it. It's there, and it's a brand that's not being used. So I was like, 'I'll take it.' It always meant something to me." (MTV)

Eminem Talks to Vibe

"That 'Hottest MC'-  
list that I was left off, it was one of those things that I was glad that I am at where I'm at. I'm glad I'm in this place now, because a few years ago I would've let it bother me more than it did. I took it not as a slap in the face but more so like, 'Maybe I'm not on that list for a reason. Maybe I'm not doing the things that I need to be doing. Maybe I need to look at myself and step it up.' I don't know what I would have thought being in the mind state that I was in. I just felt like maybe I need to do better." 

Canceling Relapse 2 - "
On a record like the new record, when I mention the third verse of 'Talking to Myself,' I try to sum up the last two records in a nutshell," he said. "Mr. Porter, who produced 'On Fire,' had this analogy of Encore and Relapsethat stuck with me: 'Encore I was on drugs, Relapse I was flushing them out.' His view on Relapse was that I was flushing the drugs out my system and looking back at it, I probably was. My mind was coming back, my writing skills were coming back, so I was able to write again because I had writer's block from the pills. I was backed up. I was writing so much and so quickly that I didn't have a chance to stop and say, Are these good songs? Are they great songs? I was just going. I was like, 'I got so much material for three albums, but let's narrow it down to two. Let's put out Relapse 2months later. That was the original plan. 

"There are so many drug references on the last album; that's just where my head was at," he continued. "I came to life again and everything was like new. When they say 'in recovery' or 'in rehab', it's like being born again when you get clean and sober. You start appreciating sh-- that you never thought you would appreciate, like, 'Wow, look at those trees. Look at nature.' Before, it didn't matter. I just started appreciating things more. I got happy when I got sober, broke free from the chains — not to sound corny. I broke free from the chains of addiction and it was just like 'Ahh, I'm happy again. I'm not a prisoner.' I was just happy to be back."

50 Cent Talks Diddy

While During an Interview with Hot 93.7 in Connecticut 50 talked about Diddy.        

"He's not an artist. An artist would be someone who wrote actually something on a record," 

And then went on to say

"What made hip-hop exciting to me was each person's individual experience and how you learn to enjoy them as an individual. When that's not there because they're just being an executive, like 'I don't write rhymes, I write cheques', that's not hip-hop."

Drake Interview Talks Wayne, Record Sales, and More

Drake tells Mtv about advice given him from Lil Wayne: 
   “To him, there’s a whole world moving out there that he hasn’t seen for so long. He was just like, he told me something I never thought I’d hear him say, which was, ‘You’re the ultimate artist. You’re better than me. You don’t have the tattoos, you don’t cause any trouble. People like you.’ He was like, basically, ‘Look at me and look at you.’ He was like, ‘Man, listen. You know what I think you’re about to do? You’re about to do two million.You’re about to do two million the first week. Whatever, man, whatever you do, do not get no tattoos never in your life. They gonna think you got it because you came around me.’ He said the same thing to me [during the Rikers visit]: ‘Don’t change yourself, please. You got it. I’ve never met a young dude that has it figured out, but you got it. Don’t mess it up. Just be you. Sing! Rap! Be you. Don’t stop smiling.’ That’s what he said.”
