50 Cent vs. Kanye West–It’s Going Down Sept. 11th

August 10th, 2007 // 28 Comments

Well-known for their competitive attitudes toward each other, rappers 50 Cent and Kanye West will be facing off on September 11th, when each releases his latest album. And to raise the stakes, Fitty has decided to retire his rapping career as a performer, should he fail in his goal sell more albums than Kanye. The rapper told the New York Daily News of the self-imposed ultimatum.

“Let’s raise the stakes,” said the Queens-born rapper, whose given name is Curtis Jackson 3rd. “If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I’ll no longer [perform] music. I’ll write music and work with my other artists, but I won’t put out any more solo albums.”

I kind of wish that John Mayer and James Blunt would have this kind of a show-down. And then somehow, they’d both lose and then neither one of them could perform again. Or date starlets.

    LOL. I’d like to second John Mayer and James Blunt vanishing into obscurity.

  2. This is an asshole move to exploit September 11th. 50, being from NY should respect that day and not put his album out. With that being said, I wouldn’t mind if both of them went away.

  3. I wonder who would win if they had a celebrity boxing match? Kanye’s pretty feisty.

    Who cares. Just another “who’s got the biggest d*ck” contest between a couple of guys who think machismo and false bravado make them masculine, when all it makes them is boring and neanderthal. If even one of them goes away that will be all right by me. Both of them retiring would be too much heaven to hope for in this world.

    Who gives a rat’s ass?
    Both of these talentless twats could disappear and no-one would notice.

  6. ohplease

    Kanye has a much broader audience than 50, so i think 50 will regret that retirement boast

    50 is so fuckin dumb. kanye is gonna tear his ass up on the charts. i hope this is true cuz im over him as is the rest of humanity. and kanye is hardly untalented. 50…yes he is a waste of space.

  8. dude

    its EASY to claim retirement when your ass just made 400 MILLION when Vitawater sold.

    They are both good artists, but Kanye has the guy beat.

  9. Rico

    I despise both but I’m gonna buy Kanye’s album out of spite.

    Mr. Jackson is what is wrong with hip hop today.

    Didnt 50′s Massacre album sell 1.4 million copies its first week? I think Mr.West is in for some trouble.

    WOW!!

    How can you even compare JM to Blunt C**nt.

    JM is a talented guitarust and songwriter. He really writes some clever stuff.

    Hardly any musician I know can figure out his chords/picking correctly.

    I hope Kanye sells way more than 50. God, I can’t stand him. 50 cent is played out. He need to take his lock-jawed ass back to wherever he came from…

  13. d-nice

    Seriously 50 is a Neanderthal & needs to go away already. Kanye’s new stuff is completely inspired, 80′s flavor, way cool!
    I will personally buy KW’s & hope for 50′s retirement. I am sick of the lack of creativity from 50, we heard it all before there is nothing new there.

    Been a huge fan of 50 since day one.. he’s put out a lot of great mix tapes and every album up until get rich or die trying was great but when he expanded g-unit with olivia..mobb deep..mop ect 50′s shit went to commercial and became bland. 50 quotes he wrote his new curtis album in his grandmother’s house… did justin timberlake pop over to the ghetto’s to write the ayo track? not likely.. Kanye’s still going upward while 50′s still making same old aggressive I get money shit…catchy but played out.. kanye has the edge on style and lyrism.

  22. kanye will lose

    Ight 50 from 2album’s has sold 20 million record’s kanye has sold 5 mill in 2 ovbiously fif has got the audiencepick up curtis graduaion is gonna sell probally 1 mill
    50′s got a better style on curtis

    I do not like Rap so I really could care less about any of this. Why doesn’t normal music just come back? Why does it have to be this rap shit? Same song lyrics (I got money and chains and girls and cars… And why do I give a fuck?) Same music videos (Women shaking their ass for the camera… Again I don’t give a fuck how big you ass is) They all need to grow up and make some real music. You got a problem with my opinion email me : dombillijah@gmail.com (I’d love to hear what kind of shit you have to defend this. Other then the fact that you, like the people making up this music, is ignorant)

    I don’t really care for either but I care even less about West who is all about West and how good he is and if the world can’t see that than f*ck them. So…I am gonna go out and buy a copy of 50′s album, throw it away and feel good about sticking it to West in my own little way.
