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