Pulse Chatterbox

Kanye West’s and 50 Cent’s newest albums are set to drop on the same day, Sept. 11. According to the BBC, 50 Cent said “If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I’ll no longer write music.” He went on to say he would collaborate with other musicians, but not put out any solo work. Who do you think is going to win this showdown?

Alicia Wade:

I’m going to seriously question my faith in humanity if Kanye’s sales don’t destroy 50 Cent. Controversial, intelligent lyrics versus songs about licking lollipops? This is a no brainer – just America’s style.”

Eugene Clark:


I think 50 Cent needs to get off his high horse and spend more time worrying about his own talent and progress than worrying about what other hip-hop stars are doing. If Kanye West does sell more albums than 50 Cent, that should be an incentive to try harder next time, not be a crybaby and quit. If talent plays a role in the competition than Kanye West will sell more albums.

Jakina Hill:

Please go buy Kanye’s album. It’ll be killing two birds with one stone – No Kanye whining and no more amusement park or candy shop songs.

Audra Ord:

I think it is ridiculous. He shouldn’t give up just because someone sold more albums than him. He should suck it up and be the bigger man and keep making his music. I think that Kanye West will sell more albums.
