Over two years have now passed since Cashville’s finest Young Buck released his studio album Buck The World. When speaking to him it becomes immediately clear that he has matured during this time, perhaps unsurprisingly after having to overcome a number of career obstacles throughout this turbulent period. Following the constant stream of rumors circulated by a number of media outlets, Buck wants to move past any negative preconceptions but not before setting the record straight regarding several matters with AllHipHop.com, as he acknowledges that to avoid certain subjects would be to ignore the proverbial elephant in the room.
Having clearly learned a lot from his experience in the industry so far, Buck explains how his separation from Hip-Hop supergroup G-Unit has encouraged him to become “more focused” as a businessman, “paying more attention to the moves that [he] makes as an artist and as a CEO.” Following the aftermath of the situation, he now realizes that when you are in the public eye, you have to be a little more careful with the course of action you take. He notes that throughout the entire sensationalized saga, “there was a lot misconstrued and a lot of s**t tossed in the media.” Still a self-proclaimed “street n***a,”he claims to have “become more wise” over the past two years. “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 says proudly. “I’m man enough to admit my wrongs and correct [them].” On that note, he is quick to add that as an artist, he really just wants “to move beyond the whole thing.” “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.”
