Kanye Sends 50 Cent West

September 20, 2007

In the show down of hip-hop album releases, Kanye West’s Graduation versus 50 Cent’s Curtis, Kanye won by a large margin. That’s right Kanye sent 50 Cent West. Neilson reports Graduation sold 957,000 copies to Curtis‘ 691,000 copies. This makes Graduation the top selling album of the year, with Linkin Park as the runner-up, which sold 623,000 of “Minutes to Midnight” when it debuted in May.

No word yet if 50 will keep his vow of retiring from music if Kanye beat his record sales. Was this a marketing snafu or overconfident self-promotion? It seems that the hubris heavy album competition is fitting for the ego-centric, money snatching lyrics of these two hip-hop artists. Now if Britney can just challenge Simpson, we’ll have even more great news to read.

    It was smart considering slumping sales. Rumor is now Mariah Carey and MJBlige are gonna do the same!
