Young Buck is selling his catalog to help pay off a massive debt he owes to 50 Cent.

The pair have been at serious odds with each other ever since Buck claimed the G-Unit leader forced him to file for bankruptcy in 2020.

According to court records submitted in Young Buck’s bankruptcy case, 50 planned on suing Buck for two owed albums and a $250,000 debt, claiming a two-year deal he signed back in 2014. 50 had previously sued Buck for music he claimed was still owed to G-Unit.

As reported by AllHipHop, Young Buck is reportedly selling off the rights to his music in order to make some money. The Tennessee rapper has struggled financially in recent years as a result of child support debts and issues with the IRS.

The outlet confirmed that Buck is auctioning off his song copyrights, mechanical royalties, performance royalties, and publishing royalties, which have been valued at over $700,000 by brokerage firm SongVest, which specializes in auctioning off music royalties.

The catalog’s auction will probably be sufficient to pay off some of Buck’s creditors, including 50 Cent, according to trustee Erica R. Johnson, who told the outlet.

In an interview with the It’s Tricky with Raquel Harper podcast, Buck said that the Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ rapper was to blame for his bankruptcy file in 2020. Buck has been extremely open about his relationship with 50 Cent.

“Once he stopped me from being able to make money, I filed another bankruptcy,” Buck said. “They stopped him from being able to cease-and-desist in regards to me being able to, you know.”

He continued: “I included what he claimed that I owed him in the bankruptcy to be able to say, ‘Well hey, if you’re owed this and present whatever receipts or whatever… You will be paid type of situation.’ But that was the only way I was able to go forward with working, so.”

However, Buck clarified that he would never pursue any legal action against his former collaborator.

“We at a standstill, I’m definitely not looking to go down a whole long drawn-out court situation, things like that, when it could all get handled and be done on a business level if we had that conversation to get that clarity,” he said.

“He could get whatever he’s looking for from me, I can get what I’m needing from him. I can move on with my life, and continue feeding my kids.

“He could do the same. Like I said, my biggest situation was the fact that he sent cease-and-desists out to try to stop all of my music, and get everything pulled down based on saying I’m still an artist on G-Unit.”
