Jay-Z Says 50 Cent and Kanye West Competition Is A “Fantastic Thing”

jay2.jpgIn an interview with MTV News, Jay-Z speaks for the first time about the highly anticipated showdown between Kanye West and 50 Cent this fall, as both artists will release their new albums — Ye’s Graduation and Fif’s Curtis — on September 11. While 50 told Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex a few weeks ago that Jay-Z would be smart to move Kanye out of his date, according to Hov, that’s not going to happen. “I think it’s great. I think it’s a fantastic day for hip-hop,” Jay told MTV News. “I remember having those dates [against] OutKast a couple of times. I actually had one with G-Unit [with Beg For Mercy]. It’s great. It’s a fantastic thing for hip-hop, especially retail. I know they’re loving it. You’re driving people to the store. We love it, we think it’s a fantastic thing.”
