...Because, according to 50 and Yayo, Buck smoked and spent the majority of his money and turned to 50 for a $250k loan to pay his taxes...twice. That's why 50 won't let Buck go--He's using his control over Buck as leverage to get his money back (And before anyone says anything, I know it's near-impossible for Buck to earn $500k nowadays, especially when the fact that 50 wouldn't even let him collab with the various artists who, according to Buck, reached out to him is considered).
You know whats crazy is 50 sued him after Buck made questionable moves and slandered his character....He loaned the guy 500 Grand
Crazy thing is if he werent with 50, and was actually signed to any other major out there and answering to their bullsh*t, he more than likely would've never made that much and/or he damn sure wouldntve received no 500K loan. Whitney Houston was begging and bargaining with Clive Davis for a 2 million dollar loan....Buck got a 4th of that and he aint generate nowhere near the same amount of money as someone like Whitney.
Any other label wouldve just threw him on the back burner, let him fade into financial debt faster, wouldntve loaned him that 500K, and wouldve sued him for the royalties/trademarks way before the IRS had a chance to get to them. 50 Actually threatened to do this to him 2 years ago but ended up not following through.
He helped the man make 10 million dollars when Cash Money had him sitting on the sidelines and carrying Juveniles bags on tour every now and then.
