Kanye West Takes Aim At 50 Cent

Published: Friday 19th Sep 2008 by Sam
Kanye West Takes Aim At 50 CentIt seems the ‘beef’ between Kanye West and 50 Cent, which culminated in Kanye’s ‘Graduation’ besting ‘The Massacre’ last September, has been reignited as both rappers prep new albums. Check out Kanye’s latest blog which takes jibes at the G-Unit general – who rubbished Ye’s latest single ‘Love Lockdown’ (click here to watch 50 ‘performing’ the song):

just woke up from a quick studio nap… I’ve been workin’ on 808s and Heartbreak about 16 hrs a day and Superman passed out for a little bit… I’m in hawaii but I’m still on NY time so I wake up mad early, do some business, blog, jog for an hour, play ball, eat and then hit the stu by noon. While approving the final cut for the Love Lockdown vid, I marvel at the fact that it was written less than 3 weeks ago. I’m very excited about the everything… I guarantee this will be 50’s favorite album of mine. This will be gangster’s album of the year. {Source}

There’s no doubt this is a ploy to drive sales for both projects. In any case, here’s to Kanye winning ‘Round 2’!

    50 is wack.

    LoL clearly ashley you are one side minded and don’t know the facts that your spittin. All of Ye’s albums have done extremely well and no one is checkin for 50 anymore…don’t be mad. Do ya homework cause 50 is checkin for Kanye…why was he rapping to Kanye’s new song?

    The Facts:
    – 10 time Grammy Award Winner
    – Holds the 2008 title as the as the years #1 Hottest MC in the game from MTV
    – Nominated for 8 Grammys at the 50th Grammy Awards
    – First week album sales of 957,000 copies for Graduation and as of August 2008 the album has sold 3.1 million, not to mention he also won 3 Grammys for this album
    – Late Registration sold 860,000 first week and to date has sold over 3.5 million copies.

    All this is to say obviously Kanye gets better over time, 50 started strong and fell off horribly. If you need more stats to make 50 look even worse. I got u.

    first off the one on fifs jock can calm down because ye didnt say too much of anything he just threw a little jab,fif been talking s*** about ye since he LOST to him last year and ye hasnt said anything at all…..now he makes a simple comment and people wanna act like he wrote a essay about fif…knock it off…fif likes to run his mouth and the ONLY person who beat him at his own lil game is kanye west…used one of his verses and made it a hit.

    fif is rich as hell so he can knock it off and go sit down somewhere….and though it might be publicity kanye had the right to shoot back because fif popped off first publicity or not.

    P.S. You might want to check iTunes cause “Love Lockdown” went #1 @ 7:45 NY time

    Am I the only one a little tired of the 50 vs. Kanye thing? I mean, 50 lost plain and simple. Regardless of the last “challenge” they had, they’re both big enough artists that all of us will probably still buy (or at least burn) their new stuff whether they drop on the same date or not.

  9. AaronMichael[Songwriter] September 19, 2008

    I won’t be getting 50’s as I never have but I will definitely be getting that Kanye. It comes out on my B-day too! 50 was supposed to retire after the last defeat. What happened to that?

  10. SamIsA… September 19, 2008

    He said that, and a week later took it back. Pay attention, lol.

    it wasnt “the massacre” for your info it was “curtis”! (curtis vs graduation)!!

    5O ALL DAY!

    It’s hilarious . . . . let’s remember guys, 50 cent is a marketing genuis. Since he started the whole beef last year when Curtis and Graduation dropped, he needs to make himself open for Kanye to come at him. 50’s only goal is to remain relevant and he will do that By Any Means Necessary. . . . .

    Iguess Oprah has did it again..Hey have you all heard about Oprahs new website she paid 60 million for..FILMSTARS08.COM? I hear it launches next month. I hear theres nothing out there like it. Entertainment news calls it myspace Hollywood edition//////////////

    “He said that, and a week later took it back. Pay attention, lol.”

    I don’t pay attention to lies. You don’t come out putting your career on the line depending on how the album sales do and then try to take it back the next week. What an idiot move that didn’t even work. 50 is garbage and so is G-Unit. Clearly no one bought that last album either.

    50 cent is over, that dude was just a phase, don’t be mad, it’s he trOOF yo.
