50 Cent: Outsell Kanye Or Stop Trying

by JOKESTA ()

The 50 Cent Vs. Kanye West battle continues this week as we approach the face off on September 11th when both rappers 3rd major LPs debut. Kanye West’s “Graduation” has been gaining momentum from three hit singles while 50 Cent seems to be struggling with only one major hit.

Disregarding the lack of buzz from both fans and critics alike, 50 has thrown out some bold words and has put his solo career on the line.

“They would like to see Kanye West give me a problem because I’ve worked myself into a space where I’ve become the favorite,” Fif told SOHH. “Everybody roots against the underdog when he goes against the favorite.

“Put it like this,” 50 continued. “Let’s raise the stakes. If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I’ll no longer write music. I’ll write music and work with my other artists, but I won’t put out any more solo albums.

“And I bet this, when Kanye West’s sales come in, he’s gonna have a 70% decrease [the second week] ‘cause Def Jam is gonna buy records to keep him closer to 50 Cent,” the Queens rapper added. “So watch the first week and then watch the second week. Watch his shit drop off the planet. We keep our angles covered before we make a decent bet.” Said 50.

50’s “Curtis” and Kanye’s “Graduation” are scheduled to hit stores on September 11th, 2007.

He'll outsell Kanye by 40 or 50 thousand, just because of his white(mtv) fanbase.
Both will have huge dropoffs in that 2nd sales week though.

It's funny that he say def jam is gonna buy kanye's records to keep him close i think thats kind of a insult kanye sold 820,000 copies his first week last album. Ilike that about fif keep it a compition. I know im gone catch alot of backlash from a lot of people but I think 50's gonna win by default cause now interscope is gonna buy his records to make sure he dont retire. before you start talking i said i think. and if he dont win thier gonna drop before i self destruct anyways cause he under contract and the albums already done. it just wont be promoted buy him.

honestly I dont wanna see 50 fail i mean im not a huge fan of his music but it aight and he has been falling off this go round. but think about 50 keep you interested,this is actually a battle without them throwing out dis tracks at each other and the fact that 50 is upin the stakes makes it better. i just wish kanye would just say something to make it more of a competion im sick of hearing him say "i dont care if come 2nd" im not askin for a diss track but just sound more confident if you not in it to win then why play the game. bu this is actally gone help hip-hop people actually gonna go and buy the albums cause they wanna be apart of history expect alot of albums to be sold that day. I think most people may buy both albums. who know's curtis may still have some hot tracks. I wouldn be surprised if they both sold a mil their first week.

1Time4UrMind — 10 days ago

50 Cent is a talented rapper who has a great flow and knows how to create a stir about whatever he does, but the fact of the matter is that when he started coming out with singles titled "Candy Shop" & "Amusement Park" it was apparent that he would do whatever it takes just to sell records. I mean he criticized Ja Rule for having Ashanti on all his hooks and then 50 Cent himself started singing. I loved Get Rich or Die Trying and there were some tight tracks on The Massacre, but I think that he is way over his head on this one because if a Dre Produced Track (Straight To The Bank) or a track that is clearly meant to appeal to white teenagers (Amusement Park) can't be a hit, then he's fucked. I Get Money is a tight track but by September 11th it will already be played out and even his track with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland are whack. So id say that he may get the first week numbers because of the hype, but thats it, his album will be a flop. Kanye's singles on the other hand haven't preproduced as big of stir as his vious album's singles Diamonds from Sierre Leone and Through The Wire/Slow Jamz, but after hearing Common's album which Kanye Produced almost all the tracks to and which was number one this week, I think that Kanye will sell more records. He's a talented rapper/producer who always tries to reinvent himself and who loves music moreso than money. The best rappers in the game are true to themselves and can make a hit track not by trying to appeal to the masses.

I've been in da south (on the east coast) since the begining of the summer and I've heard that shit a whoppin' 4xs since it's release---fuckin 4xs---he can't possibly put them old kinda numbers with this kind of response, even if the shit gets 100 spins a day in NY---them bootlegging, hustlin' ass NY niggas don't buy no fuckin' music---they don't see 50 the way the rest of you niggas see him---they know this nigga---they know what he realy is and what he really ain't(he ain't no snitch either)---NY is whole different fucking place on earth---NY niggas don't have the same stars in their eyes like you niggas(celebrities walk that fuckin streets everyday--hell, I've seen David Letterman, Mr. Peterson from Seindfeld)---NYers in general don't get caught up into the novelty of life like you do---the fuckin cab drivers got fucking attitudes in NY, the damn lady selling fuckin shuttle passes got fukin' attitudes---them niggas don't give a fuck, they are some straight up one-track minded mutha fuckas------------$ That all that matters whether u spendin money in their establishment or enriching their lives somehow. Of course if music is hot, then it's hot, andyou got some mainstream folks buying it, but ain't nobody ever sold millions of records out 1 region, and it damn sure will never be NY.

I hope 50 flops so bad that Game's Doctor's Advocate ended up out-selling "Curtis." I doubt it'll happen (50 has to large of a world-wide fan-base) but wouldn't that be something if it did.

I'm pullin for Kayne this time around. If there is any MC more arrogant than Kanye, it's 50 cent. Fuck Curtis.

nah 50 still bang on the west, but even the west got taken over by the south. I'm from LA and niggas out there are real all ova the place... they like whatever is mainstream.. I'm talking about overall. So before some ignant WC fan say something I'm talking overall and radio. Basically there's no culture in the west coast except the small lived Hyphy movement. Westcoast program directors don't support westcoast artists unless you snoop or dre (and everything that falls under them)

why is anyone even debating this. 50 is garbage. the man introduced alot of ppl to rap. after that he started singing just like Ja. And personally, Ja was a muhc better singer haha. But seriously, get rich came out and every track on the disc goes fuckin hard. The softest song is probably 21 questions and still, the dude aint singing on that, its dope. then the massacure. some hot tracks but what the fuck!? candy shop? are you for real? 50 can suck a a candy covered dick on his farris wheel at the amusment park while he usin his technology to look down bitches shirts from the top of the wheel.

I'm just thinking advantages:

50 - marketing genious, used to have that real hood delivery (i don't like his newer stuff, but old 50 was right)(marketing wise.....he only has one song on the radio and has a ridiculous amount of buzz from talking) He talks shit to the streets and sings to the suburbs.

Kanye - soulful producer/rapper, highly charismatic to mainstream and conscious hip hop fans (despite his spurts of arrogance)(people hold standards to kanye so he doesn't necessarily have to release too much, though the mixtape was hot shit and def gave him proper buzz)

The thing about 50 is he always has hidden wires somewhere (remember how he screwed over Game? I think dude is still payin 50) Which is making me wonder why he would make this announcement. Perhaps Ye has a single or two with some people under 50 so that 50 gets paid regardless (so why not make such a comment, which makes your fans by your album, and kanye fans(and 50 haters) actually buy Graduation, to get money on his artists' feature singles) Now that's just speculation right there cuz I don't know the track listing...but it's not completely off to think that 50 may have that in mind.

Also, something else I think is being underestimated with concious hip hop fans is Ye's work on Common's "Finding Forever". That short yet classic album def has those heads in Ye's favor.

The other thing funny about this is that if he loses he can simply say "Kanye never agreed", because he said "Let's raise the stakes....". There weren't any made if Kanye (the only person really able to accept the challenge) didn't agree. Maybe I'm just thinking too much though.

Go Graduation!

I'm in Australia and I can tell you down here it'll be 10 to 1 people coppin Kanye over 50. I would laugh too if Ja beat them but it'll be a cold day in hell before that happens. No doubt both will do big numbers but like I say, down here, Kanye gonna kill him. He's just got a broader appeal, even my wife and my mum would both listen to Kanye. As for me, I think Kanye is a dope producer, probably the best since Dilla (although 9th Wonder is getting better all the time), but he aint the best rapper. That said, he's still better than 50. Lyrically 50 is garbage. Get Rich was fire but the Massacre was lame. Anyway that's how it's going down Down Under.

FYI.........
August 11, 2007. Looks like the Clash Of The Titans that was scheduled to take place between 50 Cent's album Curtis and Kanye West's album Graduation is not going to happen. According to one of MediaTakeOut.com's most reliable Def Jam sources - Kanye West's album will not be released on September 11th.

According to a top Def Jam exec, the battle is officially over. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, "It sounded like a good idea at first, but not anymore ... It was just a friendly competition and now [50 Cent's team] is trying to make it into a battle to the death." The exec added, "Kanye is one of [Def Jam's] most successful artist, we're not going to risk damaging his career with this feud."

By the way this wreaks of publicity stunt. Someone came up with the idea of promoting these albums by starting a beef with this "challenge" idea. This way, every fan of Kanye and 50 will come out and make SURE they buy these albums... instead of downloading from limewire like we usually do. Its a win/win for both of them. This thing is rigged.

50 Cent says that he will retire if Kanye West sells more records then him on Sept. 11th. These 2 artists are really being BIG HEADED about the situation and who is the better artist.

How about this, How about everyone goes out and picks up my Cd on Sept. 11th? How about you make me #1 and shock these BIG HEADED artists. Imagine that. How humbling would that be?

I would really like to start a network of people who vow to go out and purchase the L-Love "Jealousy & Envy?!" cd on Sept. 11th instead of either 50 Cents new cd or Kanye Wests new cd.

L-Love "Jealousy & Envy?!" (Double Cd) featuring A-Wax, Natural Born Dankstas, B-Legit, Mr. Luv, Crooked I, Tray Deee (Snoop Dogg's Eastsidaz), Smoov-E, Nocturnal Hustlaz and many many more.
