"But S4S, I don't like rap, even though that 'Gold Digger' song of his was kinda catchy!"
"But S4S, I never PAY for music, and neither do you! Why should I start now?"
The answer to both:
50 Cent and Kanye West both debut new albums on Sept. 11. Fiddy has announced that if Kanye outsells him on that first day, he will QUIT HIS SOLO CAREER.
NEVER have ordinary people like you and me had the power to just GET RID OF ARTISTS WE FIND EXTREMELY IRRITATING!
50 Cent: I'll quit if outsold by West
NEW YORK (AP) -- 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 personally blame Fiddy for the whole "being a crack dealer is cool" thing. I know there were plenty of others before him but I consider him the most ostentatious and offensive.
