So 50 Cent is still confident that he's going to sell more albums than Kanye. He changed his mind about ending his solo carreer though. Instead, he made another promise he probably won't be able to keep...
This time he's craving a beatdown from Jigga. 50 promises that if Kanye takes the number 1 spot tonight, he will take on the whole of Def Jam. "Everytime Def Jam has got a priority release, I will match it."
Update from billboard.com:
"After weeks of public rivalry between 50 Cent and Kanye West about whose Sept. 11 album release would sell more copies, West's "Graduation" (Def Jam) has pulled into a six-figure lead over 50's "Curtis" (G-Unit/Interscope), based on projections from representatives at the four major labels. That data indicates "Graduation" leads with 781,000 units, followed by "Curtis" with 603,000."
Update from Top40:
"Despite 50 Cent's protests to the contrary, it looks like Kanye West will coast to victory in this week's rap showdown. According to Billboard, based on midweek numbers out on Friday, major record label representatives are expecting Kanye West's album Graduation will end the week having sold approximately 800,000 copies. 50 Cent's Curtis is expected to be closer to 600,000. Hits Daily Double looks for Kanye to possibly even be close to 900,000"
