Buck allegedly released music without permission from G-Unit in violation of his contract.

In January 2020, Buck filed for bankruptcy after being released from jail.

In court docs, he listed assets totaling only $5,761. He said he owed $52k I back child support and $415k in unpaid taxes.

In his lawsuit, 50 demands the $250k debt not be discharged as part of the Chapter 7. He points to various incidents in the bankruptcy where Buck failed to follow the court rules.

So, I even got to a point where I even tried to pay the n----."

50 was not impressed with the interview and fired back on Instagram., "I gave this fool the money man, he spent it. I paid his taxes and all his legal fees. then he got caught with a t----, and said f--- you 50,” he said. was the first to report on the lawsuit.
