G-Unit associate Lil Scrappy recently spoke on his relationship with Young Buck and 50 Cent claiming the Cashville rapper would likely not be able to mend past issues with his former camp.
Having been involved with the Unit during the promotion of Bred 2 Die Born 2 Live, Scrappy detailed where he stood during the two's publicized rap beef.
"Buck is my homie; he's like a big brother you never had," Scrappy explained in an interview. "50 is also a big brother you never had. I was around both of them when they would talk about each other love-wise, and that sh*t just flipped, which is what money does. 50 is a real dude. He didn't have to do any of that sh*t for none of us. Young Buck and Lloyd Banks were the first ones. I didn't really get the love that they got. 50 thought they were his babies and if you talked to him, he would tell you that. Buck just saw me in the same situation that he was in, when he got shot up and ain't nobody f*ckin' with him. I just talked to him like three weeks ago, and he said keep doing what you're doing, and I was like I appreciate everything he did for me. And I'm out here grustlin' and if we can make a hit record again, we can do it. Buck and 50 beefing is like two brothers beefing, and they ain't never going to talk to each other again, but it ain't that beat though. They will probably get over it one day, but I doubt it just because its disloyalty. [You've] got to be loyal. Look at Lil Wayne with Cash Money: he was loyal and look where he's at right now."

Despite their estranged relationship, 50 recently said Buck is still on the G-Unit Records roster.
"Buck is still signed to G-Unit Records, hopefully he can come up with a record. If he can come up with a song, we can get my money back, you know what I'm saying? I hope he can come up with something right quick. I'm looking forward to that check at least. They gotta pay me not to put the [G-Unit] logo on it." (This Is 50)
Buck recently spoke on his two G-Unit releases, Welcome To Cashville and Buck The World.
"I won't say that I'm perfect or that I've done everything right out of this situation but I've done more right than wrong," Buck said in an interview. "I'm man enough to admit my wrongs and correct [them]...It was a phase in my life that came and went and it was good while it lasted but right now it's about Buck...The second album is what they call the sophomore jinx, it's traditional that most artists' second record's numbers are lower than their first's numbers...I'm still considered a platinum artist. My first album went beyond platinum, second one gold." (All Hip Hop)
Scrappy previously spoke with SOHH about labelmates beefing with one another.
"You can't," Scrappy said about avoiding inner label beefs. "Everybody got their own ego, everybody got their own manhood, everybody got their own. Even, some people don't know they're haters and they end up hating the other dude, you feel me? For no reason, hating them because he got so much swag. Or he's hating because he's doing better than the last dude so there's always gonna be haters everywhere you go, even on the label. If there's haters in church then there's gonna be haters on the label, there's gonna be haters in the courtroom, there's gonna be haters on the label. There's haters everywhere, you got people that's putting out your music that hate you, so sh*t, that's hard...If you a real gangsta, cuz, you tell the n*gga to go meet you somewhere. Whatever we gonna do, let's do it and be done with it. If you 'not' gonna do it, then make that joint big. Get some money off of it 'cause when you going against each other, you really don't make no money, 'cause his fans don't like you and the other dude, his fans don't like you. So they would have bought [your merchandise] if y'all weren't even beefing." (SOHH)
