Sep13-50 Talks Album Sales; Blames Interscope
 

 
Rapper 50 Cent recently commented on his first week's album sales projections, which estimate that his new album Curtis will move 550-600,000 units, about 200,000 less than Kanye West's new album Graduation.

The two rappers have been engaged in a "feud" over who's album would top the album charts over the past few months.

50 Cent appeared on Angie Martinez' Hot 97 show today (September 12) and blamed the album's second place status on Interscope Records.

"To be honest the process of selling this record hasn't been fun," 50 Cent said. "I'm happy with the performance, but I'm not happy with the set up. We had conference calls and after we created this plan, nobody actually had a plan."

According to first day sales data, Kanye West's Graduation is outselling 50 Cent's Curtis by a ratio of 2 to 1.

50 Cent also issued a warning to Def Jam, claiming he would release a new album every time the label had a big release.

"Hypothetically, if I came in under Kanye West, I would release a new album every time Def Jam had a priority. I would release a record verses every one of their top priorities," 50 Cent said.

50 Cent also said that he was finished with Interscope after the release of his next album, which will fulfill his contractual obligations to the label.

"It was the label," 50 Cent said. "Their dropping the ball all over the place. I'll release my next album and then I'm a free agent."

Kanye would be crying the exact same way if he was losing. Bottom line is the better album is winning, and I bought and like them both.

why is that? kanye never said he would out sell 50. only jokingly. he was humble about going up agianst 50 cent. saying how it was good for hiphop and blah blah blah. while 50 cent was talking so much sh*t.

both albums are ok

50s would be a lot better if it had less bangers. every damn track has such a serious bass line that its hard to lisen to the whole cd through. sometimes you need those chilled out story tracks with a calm beat.
kanyes is alright too but nothing specail.
I bought 50's cause i liked it a bit better and I said no matter how trash both these cds were i would buy one of them because they came up with the greatest marketing campaign ive ever seen in rap

Interscope fault????? No Curtis, this is you're fault. I personally don't like either one of this artist, but at the end, Kanye won the battle because he had the better album and stay away from talking sh*t unlike Mr. Jackson himself. Kanye never said anything negative about 50 and he was more thrilled to see both albums coming out at the same time. Hell, Kanye was the first artist that ignore all of the insults and tirades from 50 and did not create the free publicity/controversy that we are use to seeing before 50 releases an album. The first artist that didn't get caught in the 50 insult/wwe stunt and he outsells him. Sorry Curtis, but you are to blame for this one. You created a bad album and you should it stay quiet. Plain and simple.
