Young Buck Goes Off On Oprah

Recently G-Unit's Southern general Young Buck came through to spit fire for the debut of AOL Music's 16 Bars. As you'll see in the video, he came prepared -- but so were we. It was only a day after Oprah Winfrey's (who is also from Tennessee, Buck's hometown) now legendary hip-hop round table with Russel Simmons, Kevin Liles, Ben Chavis and Common vs. Stanley Crouch, Jason Whitlock, et al. So After Buck was finished with his verse, I asked him what he thought about the big O and the allegations that his G-Unit partner Tony Yayo got physical with Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond's 14-year-old son. Lets just say that after a few minutes I believed that he was ready to 'Buck the World.'

Technorati Profile
How do you feel about the current movement to censor hip hop?

"I just think that at the end of the day it can't be no individual that voices about any artists' things that they say in their music because they haven't walked in our pair of shoes of any of these individual artists. You can't control a thing as big as hip hop and try to make it the way that you want it or the way that any individual may want it. You gotta allow hip hop to take its course, good and bad. That's the nature of hip hop. You gotta let it be.

I think when you start putting people in pocket that are pretty much going against the negativity of it, or the harsh words out of it, things of that nature, you're taking the game to a whole 'nother level. So it's nothing wrong with them getting together, as long as they're coming up with tactics to stop bootlegging or something like that. Don't come together to migrate on trying to censorship these artists or nothing like that, or protest a certain crew, or anything like that. Come together because we dealing with situations in hip hop that's affecting the game financially more than us having to think about censoring somebody. You think censoring is going to help the financial aspect of hip hop? No, it's gonna take more from it.

So, at the end of the day I think it's just about people not allowing some of these people that have nothing to do with the hip hop world getting in and putting the influence on them to change the strategy that they followed for so many years. Anything that works, eventually it comes a time when the road gets bumpy. But if you ain't strong enough to hold onto the horse when that m---r is going over a rocky road, then you shouldn't be going over that m---r in the first place....

Can't nobody give criticism to no artists, or nobody that you ain't never put their shoes on. How can you tell this man that's speaking on what's going on in the projects that he can't say that when you ain't never experienced a day in living in them m----r -- including Oprah Winfrey! Oprah Winfrey is from my city, she graduated with my mother. She's always been a black white woman, all her life. I see her father everyday on Cleveland Street, at a barbershop. Her father owns a barbershop. She graduated with my mother from TSU, from Tennessee State University. Her character is known throughout my city, throughout the older people; they already know what type of situation it is.

I have no respect for Oprah Winfrey because she has no respect for the hip hop world, good or bad. Because there's plenty other artists that don't even push a negative line that don't even sat on her show. And they've probably surpassed some of the people she's sitting down. I mean, she'll have a child rapist and all kind of people like that sitting in front of the show, but she couldn't have a person, successful from the ghetto standing there and ask him questions. But she'll have a child rapist and ask him why did you do this to this child, and things of that nature.

Like I said, her father is from my city, he still has the hood thing. His barbershop is right on Cleveland Street in the middle of the ghetto. But as far as Oprah Winfrey, there's never been a respect throughout Tennessee for her, not from the ghetto perspective. 'Cause like I said, her father's there, but she's never even played a part in our city."

Tell me the truth Buck, did Yayo put his hands on Jimmy Henchman's son?

I could tell you 135% that it's not true, as far as Yayo's involvement in the situation with him putting his hands on Jimmy Henchman's son. He didn't do that. I know that for a fact. Now, me speaking in general, I would say that any man that put his hands on a child is not right. I'm not saying that to say that my homeboy Yayo is guilty, by any fashion. And I know for a fact that he didn't do it, but I think we know that natural rule as men, the way that goes. And outside of that, s-t happens. But sometimes there be so much tension surrounding a crew like G-Unit, that when something like that happens we automatically did it.

a lot of what oprah does is one-sided...I think rappers should get the real story out instead of lettin her dictate what should be presented to the public. But then again, she is OPRAH

Change our environments then the rappers can't rap about negative shit,until then focus of fixing the guns and drugs problem not the music. The music is helping dudes feed they families legally. I hate these niggaz who never came up in the hood and swear they got to answer on fixing the hood.

I don't think we are the minorities...I don't like the fact that we look at ourselfs as minorities...dude dis is America and if u look at the statistics...white people are the minorities here...majority of the country is mixed raced (mostly mixed with black)

Are you serious? Black people only make up 12-15% of the american population. If it wasn't so much black on black crime it would be higher. Add up all other nationalities like black,mexican/puerto ricans,cubans,hatians,and any other race thats here and it probably wouldn't make up 40% if that ain't a miniority i don't know what is. Just think about, all we have is the ghetto these white people got neighborhood, after neighborhoods, places you ain't never ever thought about going theres nothing but white people. Besides a hip hop store and the bodegas any store you go to like Walmart,and all that shit, theres mainly white people there. There really tryin to put an end to us. How do we make up 12-15% of the population and lead America in every AIDS catergory?

Theres liek 250 million peps in America right? Thats like about 38 million blacks that live in America, yeh there race would be prolly about over 50 mil if there wasnt so much black on black crimes.

you right trav...my bad I'm talkin bout the fact that a lot of the population is mixed and don't identify themselves as any particular race...this people are not accounted for in the statistics...Because of there multi-race decendants...if u look at it that way...colored are not the minorities...because some whites considered theirself to be white when they are really not white but of mix "minorities."

PEOPLE BLAME RAP FOR THESE REASONS
1. EASY EXCUSE FOR NOT PARENTING CHILDREN
2. PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE THE MARJORITY IN RAP
3. PEOPLE OF COLOR BECAME RICH OFF OF RAP
PLAIN AND SIMPLE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME SOME CHILDREN DO IMITATE WHAT THEY HEAR IN MUSIC AND SEE IN VIDEOS MOVIES SITCOMS ECT ECT THATS WHEN PARENTS AND US AS BLAC MEN NEED TO STEP UP FOR OUR KIDS AND YOUNGER SIBLINGS TO TELL THEM THIS IS ENTERTAINMENT, NOT REALITY.

Exactly. If people started parenting and stop leaving it up to other people and venues...the situation would be alot better.
