Kanye West > 50 Cent

Kanye West > 50 Cent

50 Cent is headed for retirement!

Kanye West‘s album “Graduation” is outselling 50 Cent‘s “Curtis.” According to Billboard, first week scans based on early store sales reports have “Graduation” selling 575,000-700,000 copies while “Curtis” is being projected in the 500,000-600,000 range.

FIDDY, YOU’RE FIRED!

But!!!!!!!! It could get worse for 50 Cent as he may come in THIRD this week. Country artist Kenny Chesney and his Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates album is selling in the range of 400,000-550,000 copies.

That would totally suck for Fiddy.

    This is exactly what Kenye needs, an ego boost. man i hope he comes in second.

  • the_original_nika

    ouch.

  • Nancy

    I think neither one of them are exactly “humble.” I kind of wish an out-of-nowhere teen poptart would come and beat them both. Haha.

  • ericap

    @ #3,
    Maybe Britney Spears cousin who thinks she sounds like Norah Jones?

  • yeh kanye

    it doesn’t matter, all of them are going to do well and get rich. no one there should feel defeated.

  • against kenya and 50

    I hate both of them really. I kinda wish that 50 would beat Kanye because I can’t stand his ego! The guy is inlove with himself..he needs to realize he’ll always come in second to MTV…that stuff was hilarious to watch. HAHAHAHA!

  • Music4Wings96

    Kanye’s album is by far one of the best this year. 50′s is as mediocre as it gets. I copped 5 KanYe albums…here’s hoping that lyrically inept “rapper” 50 Cent retires.

  • =)

    JARED!

    Vanessa H. cancelled the Leno appearance.

  • ****

    I’d honestly rather buy a Kenny Whatever album than I would a fiddy cent one (he released Candy Shop for christsake!). I’ve already bought my KanYe CD and not just because it has Murakami on the cover.

  • frances

    Honestly, they are both egomaniacs.

    I mean Kanye, enough said. And 50… well, he brought up the bet thinking that he was going to win. so again, enough said.

    So I hope Kanye wins! They’re both cocky and arrogant, so might as well choose the talented one out of the two!

  • Lilflowa

    Kanye is going to smash 50! luv ya Kanye! speak ya mind!

  • frances

    Honestly, they’re both egomaniacs.

    I mean Kanye…enough said. As for 50… he’s the one who started the bet thinking that he would definitely win. Saying things like, Kanye is the ‘worker bee’ and he’s the ‘boss.’ I mean seriously… they’re both a**holes.

    So in conclusion, if I had to root for someone, I’d definitely root for Kanye. Why? Because like I said they’re both egotistical a**holes, but at least Kanye is talented. He actually has interesting lyrics and cool beats, unlike 50′s trash music. 50 only talks about money, sex, woman, and more money. PLEASE RETIRE 50!

    Kanye and 50 should just be a couple, they’d make a hott! one

    Jared,

    I like to thank you for bigging me up in your blog.

    Once again, I proved to the world that my skills and creativity are no match to anyone in the hip hop game.

    People crave something different.

    I am the FROAT (Freshest Rapper of All Time).

    Like I say in my song, the Good Life, “I gots to get mine/I gots to shine.”

    50′s new cd is aite, but its really a bunch of commercial crap.

    Peace JJ

    i really don’t like both them because they BOTH have big egos. and are not that talented. But i’m glad 50 will retire he’s just annoying!(but i do like that he supports bush even though he doesn’t agree with bush on a lot of things!)
    Can’t they just both retire?
    That would be nice.

  • Nana

    HAHAHA 50 CENT IS HEADING STRAIGHT TO RETIREMENT

  • doc

    @ washington
    what does looks have to do with it?

  • daily

    can it get any worse for 50 you say?? what? he is gonna sell around 500, 000 copies.. that’s still amazing.

  • annoxious

    I will not by from a whiny recording artist…

    I’d rather buy 50-cent’s album

  • natalie

    Kanye’s CD is great. I bought it on 9/11, instead of buying 50′s. If you like Kanye’s first 2 albums, you will like his new one.

    Both of them are so full of themselves, huge egos, but they have the good music and fanbase to back it up. . . so whatever.

  • sara

    i dont like either of dem !!! if i had to choose would be 50 only because he is buddies with justin and meastro timbo so yeh

  • bab2010

    I knew it — Mr. West outsells F-50! Like I said, I’d rather buy both of their CDs.

    Sucks to be you, 50!

    Somewhere Ja Rule, The Game, Fat Joe, Diddy, Jay-Z, Shyne, Nas, Jadakiss and R. Kelly are laughing at 50… :)

  • Val

    The problem I have with Kanye West is that he doesn’t care about anyone but Kanye West. I think at the end of the day he wants the world to bow down and worship him like he’s some sort of god. When I listen to his music it doesn’t come for a pure/real place. It comes from someone who feels like they have to prove themself to people. And when you start living your life like you have to prove something to the world, you carry a chip on your shoulder all the time – and get easily offended at the slightest things. I think Kanye is really immature and needs to start making music for people to enjoy and stop making music for the sole purpose of getting an award. That’s a bad attitude to have. You can tell his true colors at every award show he’s been too. And when he doesn’t win, what does he do – cry, whine and throw a temper tantrum like a two year old child. Perhaps it’s a reflection of what his true motives are when it comes to music. To receive glory from the rest of us lowly people. Kanye West loves Kanye West.
    L8R for you, much!

  • [marie]

    Nah Nah Nah Nah…. Nah Nah Nah Nah Oh Hell Yeah!! Goodbye!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA…

  • Dj Premo

    comon guys you have to love kanye. his cockyness is what should get you to love him! hes the only cocky person in the pop industry that i actually like.

    lets judge him by his music, it shits on 50 cents and kenny’s.

  • ron

    that kanye cd is weak and soft its for females but fiddy is on some gangsta s*** on this cd but most of u guys cant relate to that. i bought both. i like fiddys better.

  • zanessagirl

    Go 50 u can still catch up don’t worry kanye is a cry baby I’m on 50′s Team.
    Kanye Sucks!!
    !Go 50!

  • Hip Hop Fan

    is this is a career stunt by 50 cent to challenge Kanye West knowing that Kanye would win and he would now have a reason for early retirement from his solo career?

  • Makaveli

    50 cent is just a wannabe… I actually used to like he’s music until I realized he sucked… I mean, common.. he’s often using the same rhymes twice, and he only raps about how many hoes and money he got…he’s fucking up hip hop… Kanye West is way better than him.. I’m not surprised why he’s leading.. most people are probably so sick of fifty that they buy Kanye West’s CD even though they don’t like him…

  • Calliope Allerdyce

    This is hilarious. It’s great that 50 cent will finally stop spreading his lame 2nd rate craptastic music to the world.

  • http://Thegeneralbert.com ALBERT
