Last fall, Kanye West and 50 Cent went head-to-head in a blockbuster album release battle in which 50 Cent stated he would retire from music if his first week of record sales couldn’t match Kanye’s. Well, Kanye won that competition, hands down. And 50 Cent didn’t retire.
So here we are again, a year later, and the two rappers could be back at it again. Who will win this time?
The pair went head-to-head last year with the release of West‘s ‘Graduation’ and 50‘s ‘Curtis’, with Kanye ultimately securing the top spot in the first week of release.
Now both artists will release albums in December, with 50‘s dropping on December 9 and West‘s on December 16.
Last year’s chart battle was highly publicised, with 50 vowing to quit music if he did not sell more records in the first week of release than Kanye West.
UPDATE: This proposed album sales drama might have to be-rescheduled, as Kanye stated on his blog, Wednesday, that he plans to release his album in November.
50 must be distraught — now he won’t even be able to piggy back on Kanye’s sales.
I CHANGED MY ALBUM TO NOVEMBER SOMETHING CAUSE I FINISHED THE ALBUM AND I FELT LIKE IT.. I WANT YALL TO HEAR IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
