Former G-Unit members The Game and Young Buck joined one another on stage at 93.5 KDAY’s Fresh Fest concert Saturday, once again publicly putting to rest any lingering rumors of animosity between the two MC’s. The hip-hop concert, which was put on by the Los Angeles based hip-hop station, had a lineup of E-40, WC, Twista, Mack 10 and Young Buck, and was headlined by The Game.
Security was heightened for the ‘Red Nation’ star after the rapper’s recent altercations outside a Hollywood nightclub where he was accused of assaulting a man, but that didn’t prevent the Compton born rapper from bringing his “A” game to the stage.
Backed by his band 1500 or Nothin’, he started his set off by performing several songs from his newly released R.E.D. album. The crowd grew especially ignited when the 10-year rap veteran brought Top Dawg Entertainment and fellow Compton artist Kendrick Lamar on stage to perform The City and Odd Future’s Tyler The Creator to perform Martians vs. Goblins. Finally, after confessing to not seeing his former G-Unit brother Young Buck in years, he asked him to join him on stage.
“I don’t know if ya’ll know, but this is my muthaf—in partner,” Game shouted to the sold out crowd of 7,000 at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.”There can’t be no muthaf—in G-Unit without no Game and Young Buck.”
The former label mates collaborated on the Drumma Boy produced hit “Blues” last year, but haven’t been publicly seen together as allies in The Game’s hometown since the Black Wallstreet founder was dismissed from G-Unit in 2005.
Both rappers made hip-hop headlines in 2007 after getting into a near altercation at a P-Diddy hosted party during All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas but reunited on stage in 2008 at a concert in NYC.
They were both dismissed from G-Unit individually after having disagreements with the label’s front man 50-Cent.
“It’s always good music when Jayceon and I work together,” Young Buck told AllHipHop.com in 2010. Indeed there was good music Saturday at Fresh Fest.
