NEW YORK, NY Friday Jul.6.2007 / -- reports that 50 Cent has cut off rappers Lloyd Banks and Young Buck, telling them that he will no longer be helping them out financially.

According to the New York Daily News, 50 said he was feeling taken advantage of, and recently held an artist meeting to draw the line in the sand. He said, "Whether I got to give them $500,000 or $300,000... Just 'cause they want $300,000 more to make what they (are) doing at the time comfortable. Like, 'Yo, I want to get this new place over here.' "

"I told them I wouldn't be assisting them financially anymore. Pretty much I was telling them I wouldn't be there. (In the past) they'd make a lot of money and spend a lot of money and have me there to fix it."

"I looked around the room, and I was the only person with G-Unit sneakers on. But they were being paid. It had become the norm for the check to come, but they were no longer wearing the clothes."
