Published December 6, 2011

After a much publicized fall out with 50 Cent and the G-Unit, Nashville native Young Buck says he's turned to one of Fif's biggest rivals for the release of his next project — Rick Ross.

In an interview with Hip Hop Official, Buck says his next mixtape will be released with Ross's Maybach Music Group.

"I've put out Back on my Buck Sh*t Volume 1. Volume 2 was produced by Drumma Boy. Salute to Drumma Boy," Buck said of his recent projects, before adding, "I'm working on a mixtape right now on behalf of Maybach Music. Salute to them."

In the same interview, Buck said he was blessed to still be able to connect with fans.

"I'm blessed to be in a situation where people enjoy what I'm giving them," he said. "They enjoy my words because at the end of the day, like I say, there's not a lot of rappers that really give it to you from a real perspective. The game is kind of missing that. It's watered down. We got all kinds of other music out there and it's cool but don't ever try to wipe the real out."

Young Buck's last album, The Rehab, was released on Real Talk Entertainment and his own Cashville Records in 2010. The "Shorty Wanna Ride" rapper is currently facing the liquidation of his assets due to outstanding obligations to 50 Cent and Universal Music Group. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
