Kanye Beating 50… So Far

      Even though the official Soundscan reports don’t come in until next week, according to several sources, Kanye West’s album “Graduation,” could be the number one album on the charts next week. Based on early retail reports, industry website, Hitsdailydouble.com, is predicting that Kanye will sell more than 700,000 albums and 50 following close behind at 550,000 albums for their first week.

      At Amazon.com, “Graduation”, is currently the top-selling album with “Curtis” at the #3 position behind Kenny Chesney’s “Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates.” Amazon even has a graphic showing who’s selling more on their Rap/Hip-Hop section on the site AMAZON . In a Los Angeles Times report, Kanye’s album is also outselling 50’s album at all Newbury Comic stores and at Amoeba Music in Hollywood. But don’t expect 50 Cent to retire, he told MTV News back in August he’s not really going to stop making solo albums if Kanye outsells him. 50 Cent also has been putting it out there that if he loses, it’ll be because Def Jam will go out and buy 200,000 copies of Kanye’s album this week.

      Both of the rappers appeared on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday and performed select songs from their albums.

    If these two arent two of the most talented mainstream artist out right now then who the hell is? Both of these album are “off the chain”!! I live in chicago and i like Kanye but 50 is a better all-around character to me although Kanye has his moments too.
