  • Jan/29/07--"That N!gga(Game)Says Dreís Name More Than Me"-Young Buck

    Cashville, Ten-A-Key. The fact that Country Musicís reigning capital has been given a Hip-Hop inspired nickname speaks volumes about the influence of the cityís newest ambassadoróYoung Buck. Mayor Bill Purcell is probably not too thrilled that his city has adopted a nickname synonymous with copping cocaine at a bargain basement price, but in terms of Hip-Hop, local artists have been campaigning for his job since Count Bass D and Kool Daddy Fresh entered the scene.

    With over 2.3 million albums sold worldwide, it would appear that the city has cast its vote in favor of one David Darnell Brown. Buck has managed to avoid the G-Unit backlash, and despite introducing an agitated spectator to the business end of some table cutlery at the 2004 Vibe Awards, MTV still loves him. While driving home, Buck is in full politician modeóequal parts activist, artist and G-Unit advocate. He may not be kissing any babies, and we can probably assume that the cigars heís pulling from have been, shall we say, slightly altered, but the campaign trail to a March 20 release date of Buck The World starts here.

    AllHipHop.com: There are various reports circulating about another DJ from Atlanta. Can you address the situation between yourself, DJ Will from Hot 107.9 and the Core DJ's?

    Young Buck: I ain't put my hand on no DJ ever, just to clear that up. It was a situation where I was paid to be at a f**kin' concert and perform. Don Juan, my DJ, was set up on the stage already and everything and then the [The Game's "It's Okay"] "One Blood" record dropped as I was getting ready to perform. I stopped the record and asked the man, "Look bruh, I don't know if you're doing that to disrespect me, but if it's real disrespect, you'll bring the record back." He brought the record back. He brought that motherf**ka backóhe was gangster for that s**t. The crowd was upset after that because you've got to remember these are my people. I was paid $15,000 to perform and everybody in there came to see Buck.

    Him playing that record not only caused a conflict of interest with the crowd, but he knows there's a conflict of interest between the two crews at that time. Why would you even do that? At that time the crowd was all the way off base, so after that I told the crowd that I would try to go over and holler at him and see what the deal was. He tried to explain in a roundabout way, but there was just too much tension at the time. I said, "Let me just get up out of this s**t." I walked off the DJ booth and headed to the door and that's when the rumblin' started. I never put my hands on anybody and he knows that I didn't put my hands on him. I think he almost feels like somebody in my entourage or some of my people actually did it, but nobody in my entourage put their hands on him.

    AllHipHop.com: Buck The World was originally scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of 2006, why the change?

    Young Buck: There really wasnít a reason to release it that early. I was featured on Lloyd Banks, T.I., Trick Daddyís and some other albums too. Me being on that many albums and a few others that were coming out in the fourth quarter allowed me to push my album back and it also allowed me to free up some clearance time for myself.

    AllHipHop.com: True. Every commercially successful crew seems to reach a point where they have to switch things up a little bit. In doing so, G-Unit has experienced its share of backlash, but you have been able to avoid that, how so?

    Young Buck: We set our standards so high by selling so many records in the beginning of this s**t that the people start to see a gold record, like how Yayo did 750,000, then they see a record go gold after 50 did 12 million, and then two [million] from me and Banks itís like, ďOh s**t.Ē Mobb Deep comes through and doesnít have a hell of a debut like they expected so, at the end of the day, I think a lot of fans donít know that Hip-Hop has taken a fall overall. We catch a lot of flack over that by having the standards set so high on our own. But, for the most part, The Unit ainít went nowhere, my n***a.

    Thatís where I come in at. Iím the cleanup man. Iím so out here in the streets that my presence ainít went nowhere. I think the streets have been waiting with me on my project, and Iíve just been feeding them through the mixtapes and through other s**t like that. I donít make my music thinking about selling a record. I make the music thinking about how to make the best f**king music that I can make, because I know thatís going to make the money. That controls the records being sold. Artists limit themselves by focusing on selling records because then you donít really know your true potential. You have to go into this s**t like, ďF**k everything.Ē You can only do it if youíre getting money outside of just music, and thatís my thing, Ďcause Iím moving around. Iíve got one of the biggest clothing stores in Tennessee coming out, plus movies and other different s**t to keep my money turning. That way, when I come around Iím not worried about how many I sell. Iím just focused on giving my fans the best f**kiní music they can possibly hear at that time.

    N***as donít think they can do it but Iím about to show Ďem. I like to do what you canít do. Thatís what I shoot for. When a n***a tell me I canít do something thatís what I shoot for. Thatís why Iím rolling around right now with some clocks on my god damn rims.

    AllHipHop.com: Clocks on your rims?

    Young Buck: Straight up, bruh. Theyíre called ďTimekeepers.Ē Them s**tís keep time with perpetual movement and everything. Youíll see them in your next magazine. When a n***a says the word ďcanítĒ or even has that thought in his mind then heís already f**kiní up.

    AllHipHop.com: Now that G-Unit has different generations are you passing that type of advice on to newer members like Spider Loc and Hot Rod?

    Young Buck: With Spider Loc, I tell him a lot. He comes straight from the motherf**kiní streets. Spider Loc is a gangbanger, bruhóheís a Crip. Heís dealing with a situation where heís coming strictly off of the block and dealing with rap. I spend a lot of time letting him know that he needs to make sure his surroundings are on the same page that heís on. Youíre going to have ups and downs with this music s**t and the s**t is not always going to look beautiful.

    I love Hot Rod so much for just being himself. Hot Rod donít have that real gangster upbringing, and he never portrays that life. He gives you that party feel and s**t like that. So, for me, the only thing I could really tell Hot Rod is, ďYo, man give me some of your hoes,Ē Ďcause his life is different from my life. I can tell him little things about the industry, but as far as day-to-day living, we live two different ways. I come upÖyou know how I came upóstraight from the block.

    AllHipHop.com: Judging by the title of your first album, I would assume that Dr. Dre has been a great influence on you as well the rest of the G-Unit.

    Young Buck: Youíre damn right. Thatís like the f**kiní mentor right there. Dre is everything to not just me, but ask Game what Dre means. That n***a say Dre name in every other f**kiní rhyme. That n***a says Dreís name more than me, and I cut a n***aís ass up for Dre. Iím like, ďGod damn, let me say his name so I can give him some love.Ē [Laughing] Nah, but itís all good, bruh. Dre is exactly what he is, and they picked the perfect nickname for himóDoctor Dre. That n***a really fixes s**t. He could hear something totally different that nobody else is hearing. My first time ever meeting him in the studio was when I was rapping and he was like, ďYo, that was dope, but spit that s**t like this.Ē

    For a rapper itís hard to just sit and listen to another n***a to tell you what to do, but this is ďThe Doctor.Ē How many n***as you know that will say something back? So I did what the n***a said and it ended up being some of the best s**t I ever did in my life. Based off of that, I knew off rip why they call this n***a ďThe Doctor.Ē That n***a fixes s**t.

    AllHipHop.com: No doubt. Being that he helped build Death Row and you had a brief affiliation with them while Juvenile was setting up UTP, did the topic of Death Row Records ever come up?

    Young Buck: Nah, I ainít never had a chance to explain my situation to Dre about being over there. Itís never came across his mind to say anything to me about it. I just know it ainít no bad blood between me and Suge Knight. My situation at Death Row was through Juvenile, and when Juvenile didnít make his situation with Suge happen, it didnít cause conflict with me and Suge. They respected Buck, and how I get down and I respected what they do. I just donít play that s**t about my life or none of this s**tóperiod. A n***a gotta kill me first before they take my respect or any of that type of s**t.

    AllHipHop.com: These days youíre respected as both a soldier and a leader. You were influential in bringing Spider Loc over to G-Unit as well as getting 50 to co-executive produce Lilí Scrappyís album.

    Young Buck: In order to be a good leader, youíve got to be a good follower. I know my position is a soldier, and I have a boss. My boss is 50 Cent. I do have my own direction. Iím a man, and Iím my own individual, so Iíll always voice my opinion in any situation right or wrong. Opinions are like assholes, everybodyís got one. I think my opinion carries a lot of weight with 50. Being in a position that 50 is in, where heís always made the decisions, heís really open minded in paying attention to me and recognizing my input. Iíve showed this n***a what I can do, and thatís what has allowed me to have my own label, Ca$hville Records. The biggest supporter of my label is 50 Cent, and thatís very seldom seen in this game. Heís my CEO and still the biggest supporter of my label. Hold on, man I got DJ Drama on my other lineÖ

    [Several minutes later]

    AllHipHop.com: Considering that G-Unit revolutionized the way the mixtape was used, do you worry that the RIAA tried to charge Drama and Don Cannon with racketeering?

    Young Buck: That n***a Drama gone be good, man. Shout out to Drama and his camp. Make sure you write that the feds ainít s**t. They can suck two d**ks and die on a cold Thursday! Dramaís my dog. I donít know the full extent of his situation, but Iím sure itís a misunderstanding on their end. As people, itís really hard to go against whatever decisions they choose to make. The word on my end is f**k Ďem. Thatís all you can say about the feds, f**k Ďem, straight up and down, f**k Ďem.

    I think Drama will be alright regardless. In any situation when youíve got a n***a like him, that was built from the streets, you can take him out of the streets but you canít take the streets away. If anybody thinks that n***a gone be through, theyíre crazy. Drama is good, that n***a is laughing at them suckers as we speak. They just made Drama the biggest DJ in the world. Thatís what youíre supposed to do though, you take that negative s**t and turn it positive so you can use it against them. Itís kind of like how ĎPac said, ďGet your weight up with the hate and pay Ďem back when youíre bigger.Ē Thatís how I tell my n***as. I done been out here and done it, so I tell Drama, ďYouíve been out here and you know how it goes.Ē I done ducked and dodged them b***hes my whole lifeóyou know how a n***a get down, cuzz.

                          do you guys know why buck tries to isolate himself from eminem?

                          every other g unit member seems to either want a beat, 16 or a hook from Em for at least 1 song on their album...
