Young Buck & Starlito Get Into A Fight On Video. A Diss Record Follows.
Young Buck and Starlito are two of the most recognized Rap artists from Nashville, Tennessee. The two men have collaborated extensively and as recently as Buck & DJ Whoo Kid’s 2016 10 Pints mixtape (“Push Da Line”). However, tempers apparently flared yesterday (July 30) at a hometown basketball game, and a video shows the G-Unit member and his onetime Ca$hville Records affiliate getting physical. Buck put the artist formerly known as “All $tar Cashville Prince” into a headlock as the two tussle and are eventually separated by security.
Bystanders captured the altercation and shared it on social media:
The motives behind the altercation are unclear. However, ‘Lito released “You Should Be Proud” following the public incident. Produced by Street Symphony (Lecrae, Meek Mill, David Banner), the song makes a number of charges against Buck.
“Nobody ever did it bigger for the ‘Ville than Buck / But I’m realer, and I really don’t even give a f*ck,” raps Starlito. The rapper appears to accuse Buck of playing both sides when he was in past conflicts. There are also accusations regarding relationships, and charging for features. The diss also features multiple homophobic slurs aimed at the onetime G-Unit/Interscope Records star and Ca$hville Records founder.
In recent years, Young Buck reunited with 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo for two charting G-Unit EPs in 2014 and 2015, respectively. New Orleans, Louisiana’s Kidd Kidd was also added to the reunited lineup. Last month, he released 10 Toes Down on his own label, featuring Lil Boosie Badazz. In March of this year, ‘Lito’s Step Brothers 3 album with Don Trip debuted in the Top 200.
In late 2004, Buck made headlines for another altercation. At the VIBE Awards, upon receiving a lifetime achievement award, Dr. Dre was attacked by an autograph seeker (named Jimmy James Johnson) on his way to the podium. Buck defended his then affiliate, by stabbing the assailant. In late 2005, that matter was later settled before a trial was expected.
