10/AUG/07: 50 Retires if Curtis Doesn't Outsell Graduation

Postby God's Son on Fri Aug 10, 2007 5:32 pm

50 Cent is a big time gambler. He bet one million on his boy Floyd Mayweather during his bout with Oscar de la Hoya. Now, 50 will put his entire career on the line for one match.

His opponent? Kanye West.

According to a report by the New York Daily News, 50 vows to retire if his upcoming album, Curtis, fails to out sell West’s highly anticipated Graduation

"Let's raise the stakes," he says. "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."

The usually outspoken West has not said much about the “competition” with 50, but declined an offer to debate the G-Unit head on BET. What am I going to debate about?" West asked at the MTV Award nominations. "I thought [the debate] was the stupidest thing. When my album drops and Fifty's album drops, you're going to get a lot of good music at the same time."

50, however, will not stop talking about Sept. 11 and had some strong words for West’s album and Def Jam, accusing the label of dishonest industry practices. “I bet this: When Kanye West's sales come in, he's gonna have a 70% decrease cause Def Jam is gonna buy records [the first week] to keep him closer to 50 Cent. So watch the first week and then watch the second week. Watch his ass drop off the planet."

OWWW SHIT now all his fanboyz gonna buy this album 3 times :lol:

lol i seriously want kanye to out sell 50 would be funny because he obviously doesn't think he will lose otherwise he wouldnt have said what he has

the deal he has with interscope means he cant stop putting out solo cds after curtis.
curtis will be his 3rd solo cd,he has a 5 album deal,if he stopped putting out albums after the third,interscope would sue his ass off.
wont happen,trust me.

without this turning into a big 50 debate,honestly im not in the humur for that. :D
but can you pleas name me anyone who doesnt care about sales,at least 3 or 4 rappers,because you seem to put 50 in a bracket on his own as far as being the only rapper in the business who is only interested in sales.

50 definitly ain't the only one and of course nobody is making music for free
but there are enough rappers who just like to rap and keep putting out music even tho they ain't selling much

And with this move (honestly I don't think it's true, just a way to get more sales imo) he's just sayin I don't care about hiphop, it's just a way to make tons of money, and if he ain't making as much as he wants he would just quit making music

thats my point,they may not be selling much but they still have to sell.
so its retarded to say 50 only cares about sales,because every single rapper cares about sales.

and im not doubting that 50 loves money(name me someone who doesnt)but the guy just got paid between 100 and 400 million for his share in vitamin water,i seriously doubt money is his only incentive for making music.

but again,theres not 1 rapper in the world that turns down a pay check because their only in it for the love of the music.

he may have said that but legally its not possible for him to do that,he cant stop making solo cds until his contract is up.
