50 CENT, pictured , has hit out at former G-Unit rapper Young Buck for alleging that he has "never seen a royalty check" from his time with the star's record label.
50 Cent insisted Young Buck was generously "overpaid" throughout his time with the hip-hop troop.
The In Da Club hitmaker axed the rapper, real name David Darnell Brown, after he spoke out about dissent in the G-Unit camp, telling America's Yo! Raps Magazine he has not received any royalties since signing with 50 Cent's G-Unit Records.
The claims were initially blasted by the star's manager, Sha Money XL, who states the quotes were false, insisting G-Unit has paid Young Buck R78 million to date.
50 Cent also refuted allegations stating it was Brown's "drug dealer" lifestyle that left him broke - claiming he had to bail the star out of "tax trouble" on numerous occasions.
He said: "The allegations were a shocker from Young Buck. The last thing I felt would ever be even said would be that (G-Unit members) weren't paid because they were actually overpaid." - Wenn
