What is a man without his word? Either someone famous said that or I just totally made it up – but methinks it’s kinda true. And just over a month ago the words out of 50 Cent‘s mouth were “If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I’ll no longer [perform] music. I’ll write music and work with my other artists, but I won’t put out any more solo albums.”
Last night it became official that Mr. Arrogant Tantrum-Thrower whupped Fiddy’s ass in the first week of record sales for their albums, selling 957,000 copies to Fiddy’s 691,000. So we’re sad to say, it’s time for ol’ Curtis to pack up his Vitamin Waters and get the eff out of town. Time to head back to the ol’ Connecticut mansion, climb in bed with the 10 luxury cars and call it a day. There’s nothing left for you here, 50! We still love you, but come on. You dug your own grave on this one, so go lie in it. Even the Times is saying it’s a high point for Kanye and a low point for Curtis.
And hey, Kanye already did your eulogy! He said at a concert last night, “I feel bad about beating 50, but I feel good about being number one.”
RIP 50 Cent’s Career.
