    Kanye is trying to hit the indie hipster kids with this new Harder single with the Daft Punk backing. I'd buy that record instead of 50s just because I like Daft Punk more than I like 50 Cent.

    I dislike both of these guys and their music though. Also, Kanye West has an ego the size of the Hindenburg and no class. The way he behaved when Justice and Simian (now Simian Mobile Disco) won the best video award for We Are Your Friends was totally rude. I'd much rather listen to Justice's great new album or SMD any day.

    I downloaded the Kanye CD. It's pretty good. My favorite song is Good life ft. T-pain

    I downloaded the 50 one but it was edited so I didn't burn it.

    C'mon guys, 50 will rock Kanye, it's not even competition

    look at both of their last CDs 50 beat him out by more than 1 million copies...and who cares if Kanye won a Grammy, and 50 didn't, he still outsold him by a lot

    In 50's first CD he had the best selling album out of any artist that year.
    in 50's second CD he had the second best selling album in the entire year after Mariah Carey. and sold like 1.14 million copies in his first 4 days.

    Kanye is no where near that

    50 Cent may sell more albums, but Kanye's music is so much better. That's why Kanye has 6 grammy awards, including "Best Rap Album" 2005 and 2006. In comparison, 50 Cent never won a single grammy.

    You guys totally lack Rap sense. Firstly Grammys and Sales don,t make a Rapper. It is his lyrical content which makes him. It is common knowledge that the people that award the Grammys dont know **** about Rap and that is why someone like Will smith could beat Notorious BIG off a grammy. To further butress my point Look at Nas for example. The guys has virtualy sold nothing and has no grammy to show. But on any list Nas will be among the top five best rappers of all time. So u guyz are attacking wuz better at a bad angle. Lyrically, 50 cent was nice in GET RICH OR DIE TRYING but right now he is lyrically ****. Kanye unlike 50 has not declined since College dropout but has instead improved considerably. So without doubt now Kanye is better than 50.

    i dont think so. While i like stronger, Kanye's lyrics have gone to crap since college dropout.

    OMG look at the OP's question, we aren't talking about Grammy's or anything like that, we're talking about who will sell mor records. I personally think that Kanye is a better overall rapper than 50 cent, however no matter who's better, 50 will rock the sox off of Kanye West in sales. Fitty wouldn't bet his career on something he didn't know for sure.

    Kanye for me. I love the College Dropout album.
  • Sheed30Sheed30 Registered User Posts: 12,425 Senior Member
    Can someone please tell me where the basis of their reasoning is for why Kanye would outsell Fifty? Kanye's second album sold 900,000 in it's first week, Fifty's sold 1.4 million in it's first 4 days.....500,000 more albums in 3 less days...big difference. And it's not going to dramatically change.
