50 Cent: Outsell Kanye Or Stop Trying
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.
