Seriously, rap now does su** I can't take most of it, can't stand the urban station up here in Boston. Kanye is different than standard rap, and I look forward to Graduation more than anything. I've been brushing up on my College Dropout (Best. Album. Ever.) and Late Registration to get me geared. That and his "Throw some D's on it" remix...

Can't tell me nothin is my myspace song, love it...stronger is getting a lot of radio play and I like it, but I hope all that radio play doesn't ruin it like it did Gold Digger...heard Barry Bonds and I was disappointed because I like Kanye and Weezy, was expecting more. I'll definitely post my thoughts when I hear the rest.


I really don't like Kanye or any of 50's current music, but I have a pretty strong feeling that Kanye will be beaten in that 'contest'.

I think 50 will sell more. People are under estimating his number of loyal fans in the suburbs across the country. That being said, I'll be buying Graduation on Tuesday.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

oh I think 50 will sell more too, but his album won't be anything ground breaking or different than his last (which was not very good).

*Steps in*

Curtis was better than Graduation.
I am not a fan of 50 Cent at all, but when it comes down to merely how good the album was, Graduation was below average.

Outside of Stronger and a couple of other songs it sounded horribly lazy to me.
Meanwhile 50 did what 50 does: hypnotic hooks, catchy production, and odes to his gun.

Kanye will never outsell 50, ever. Both of Kanye's releases combined don't add up to any individual 50 album in terms of sales.

*steps out*

i agree but for the most part, i think everyone realized how bad the massacre was after buying it and i know most fans of the genre dont like 50 anymore.

Stronger and Can't Tell Me Nothin' are two of my favorite songs right now. Looking forward to hearing the rest of Kanye's album.
