    50 Cent: I'll quit if outsold by West



    50 Cent believes his new album will outsell Kanye West's upcoming disc, and he's betting his solo career on it. Both 50 Cent and West have albums due out Sept. 11. 50 Cent, who has sold better than West, has been riled by forecasts that sales of West's "Graduation" could rival those for his "Curtis" CD.

    "Let's raise the stakes," the 31-year-old rapper told hip-hop Web site SOHH.com in an interview posted Friday. "If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I'll no longer write music. I'll write music and work with my other artists, but I won't put out anymore solo albums."

    An e-mail sent to West's publicist wasn't immediately returned Friday.

    50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson, has been publicly disparaging of West before. In 2005, he suggested the 29-year-old rapper's popularity was only possible because of 50's own success.

    But they recently collaborated in the studio. Their work, though, isn't scheduled to appear on either new album. 50 Cent's last full-length solo album, "The Massacre," was the best-selling disc of 2005 and sold more than 1.14 million copies in its first week of release. The same year, West's "Late Registration" opened by selling more than 860,000 copies in its first week.

    I think I might have to go out and buy my first rap album just so I won't have to listen to 50 yammer on about how great he is anymore.

    Sure is tempting to buy Kayne's album...though it's very unlikely I'd listen to it.

    I actually thought more people disliked Kayne than 50?

    Yea, I can't stand Kayne. I mean the guy is a total douchebag. 50 seems a little more like a human being. I also think I like more 50 Cent songs, I can only think of one Kayne song that I like.


    Soooo...50 FTW!
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    Ooh c'mon Kanye! I like his music far better than 50's...and is it just me, or does 50 look like he's borrowed a horse's dentures?... hehe
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    I've listened to both a little, but generally don't listen to either. For some reason, I don't know why, I like 50. He seems normal, funny, and I like his smile. I started out kinda liking Kanye, but every time he opens his mouth, something annoyingly stupid comes out. Now he just annoys the shit outta me. So I definitely hope 50 wins this one.
