Fifty vs. Kanye

Remember the whole 50 Cent versus Kanye West drama back in September 2007?

Both artists released their albums on the same date, but both claimed their album was gonna be number one!

I honestly thought 50 Cent would win that one. Why?

Fifty’s first album sold 7.9 million copies, second album sold 5 million
Kanye’s first album sold 3 million copies, second album sold 3 million

So who won?

Kanye’s Graduation went number 1 selling 957,000 in one week, while 50 Cent’s Curtis sold 691,000 for a number 2 position on Billboard!

Well the whole “feud” resulted in better sales for both men, and things haven’t been the same ever since:

Kanye won, went on to sell more albums than 50 Cent, bashed Britney & MTV, took a pic of his dong (which leaked), AND put Taylor Swift through hell.

Conclusion:

Kanye West is a total douchebag and a force to be reckoned with in hip hop.

      “Power” and “All of the Lights” from his last album r amazing!
      Jesus Walks, Flashing Lights, Touch the Sky, Stronger… I love Kanye’s music!

    I actually don’t like them at all. But if I had to chose, I’d choose Kanye. The only thing we have in common is that we think that Amber Rose is hot 🙂

    Music wise, KANYE! HELLS TO THA YES. How cares if he’s a little bitchy diva. His songs get me through my workout at the gym (along with lady gaga).
    If fiddy didn’t have that chipmunk face like Cyrus, he’d be completely bangable.
