50 Cent vs Kanye

50 vs Kanye - 9/11

50 Cent and Kanye both scheduled their albums to drop on September 11th, 2007. Many consider this to be a huge battle in rap. The main questions are probably not so much who will sell more, but who will come out with the better album and looking better in rap.

Kanye and 50 have both released strong singles in recent times with Kanye's "Stronger", a Daft Punk single and 50's "I Get Money" as well as the new Justin Timberlake collaboration. Kanye has gone as far as to say that his favorite track out right now is in fact 50's "I Get Money". Meanwhile 50 was on BET's 106th and Park last week talking about "bring Kanye here, Im ready". 50 also said something about being a "conscious rapper" and how he's conscious when he raps.

The album sales will probably swing in 50's favor due to the G-Unit hysteria that's going around. However, Kanye has seemed to drop the more relevant music in recent times and the more innovative, thought provoking tracks. If Kanye can release yet another strong single on par with the popularity of "Golddigger", expect that he may surpass 50's sales in good time.

Kanye West's "Graduation" and 50 Cent's "Curtis" both drop 9.11.07
