50 Cent Talks About Young Buck's Future At G-Unit

After presumably beefing with Young Buck , 50 Cent now says there will be no war. Although the two traded jabs at each other in concerts, a leaked track, a leaked phone conversation and radio interviews, 50 now says he has no intentions of beefing with Buck , adding that he cannot make himself view his old partner as an enemy.
" Buck is a disappointment for me, " 50 Cent told MTV this week. " I treated him like a younger brother. ... He's not a enemy now. He's like a relative that decides to do something to you that you're uncomfortable with, so you don't bring him around you. I don't view Buck as my enemy. If he feels that way about me, those are his personal feelings. I wouldn't be surprised if he felt that [I was his enemy]. He's like my younger brother — even if he sees me in this interview saying it to him — he won't understand. He'll just go on how it feels ."
After being asked why he released the phone conversation, 50 explained.
" I couldn't tell you the things he told me in that conversation. You'd think I'm just being angry. [But] I play you the tape and you get it for yourself so much more vividly. "
50 faced some criticism from different people for leaking the conversation. When asked how he felt when certain bloggers called him a " bitch ass, " 50 fired back.
" For them to say that, they don't understand the dynamics of what's going on. Ask me, do I care about a blogger? A person who has time to say that was a bitch ass move is a bitch ass nigga. I thought that was an official move. Right now I don't wanna be disrespectful to Young Buck . But how do you respond to the disrespect he's displaying? "
According to Fif , Buck is still technically in G-Unit . Therefore, 50 says there will be no beef when discussing the business aspect of their relationship.
" He'll still get his fair shot at releasing his album. Listen, he just did a show and only 20 people showed up. If that's not an indication that what you're doing is a mistake, I don't know what is. "

Nas Responds To Album Leak

Yesterday was quite an interesting day in the world of Nas . As his upcoming album, which is being called Untitled instead of Nigger, prepares for a July 15th release date, something peculiar happened – the album sprung a leak. But it isn’t the accidental leak that many expected. Systematically, multiple songs began popping up in numerous blogs and websites (mostly via the blog collective titled the New Music Cartel ). By the time everything was said and done, the entire album was online.
There has been no rhyme or reason as to why this happened but it doesn’t seem like it was an accident at all. As a matter of fact, it appears Nas and Def Jam knew of what was going to happen. Nas issued a video response regarding the matter.
“You know we get leaked. You know I’ve been getting leaked forever,” Nas said. “And it’s so fucking exciting!”
Why did the album get purposefully leaked? It could be to simply build the hype for the upcoming album. Either way, look for Untitled on July 15th.
