Kanye West Tells Curtis He’s Not Moving

kanye-west31.jpgAs reported on XXLMag.com last week, Kanye West will release his third album, Graduation, on September 11, the same date 50 Cent intends to drop his new LP, Curtis. Upon the announcement, 50 told Funkmaster Flex on New York City’s Hot 97 radio station, “I hope they see and understand what’s getting ready to happen,” he said. “I’m not moving, I’m coming September 11, and if Kanye come that day, then he come that day. I mean that would be great if he actually stayed in that date. I think his people are smart, and I think he’s smart too, and I think they’ll move.” But according to Kanye West, he’s not budging and is sticking to his September 11 release date. “The date, Graduation, September 11, we ain’t moving,” ‘Ye told MTV News on Sunday night after performing with Lil Wayne at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. “I’d rather come out on a day like that, up against 50 — where people are excited about going to the stores and it’s an event and people talk about it — and be #2 on that day rather than come out and be #1 on a day nobody cares about. It’s about things going down in history. It’s not that much exciting stuff in hip-hop right now. I think people are going to make it more than what I’m making it myself. At the end of the day, I’m making music and I’m trying to sell.”

Ye already wins in my book.

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    This Battle or Competition is about More than just Record Sales, BOTH Artist are at the Top Of the Hip-Hop Hill and it’s a Struggle to see who is gonna prevail, niggas say a nigga is better becuz he sales more records, but, in all actuality Whoever makes a Dope Album that bangs with a Message and creativity, AND who sales to the Target Demographic: White America, that Artist will WIN. That MC is gonna be Crowned the Offical “King Of Hip-Hop” and thats who is gonna be the New Biggie, Pac,Nas and Jay-Z of the Rap Game. I believe that Kanye West is Gonna Beat 50 Cent at this Sept. 11 Clash Of the Titans, becuz of the Music that I am hearing and from the reaction it’s gettin, plus, White People think that “Kanye West Totally Fucking Rock!” King Kanye is Coming Sept.11 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    at the end of the day does it really matter

  • HIJOKKA

    It’s good marketing for both — listen to what kanye said– people are already at the store for one so they will probably cop both– in so many words.

  • jburg

    Frankly I don’t give two fucks, as long as the music is good neither has anything to worry about. Whether one or two they both gonna push half a million. They will probably gonna flipflop the second week anyways so they both will be number one. regardless they getting the hype they need and hip hop needs. get off this competition shit and hope for classic albums. sales don’t mean shit if the album is wack.

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    Niggaz know that Kanye’s Music is waaaayyyyy better than 50 Cent’s Music. Period. Even though XXL Magazine never gave Kanye a Cover and Dick Rides 50 cent harder than a Belize Hooker gone off Ecstasy, EVERYBODY Already knows that Kanye is way Doper than 50 Cent, it’s just that Interscope Owns XXL Magazine so even WHEN Kanye Outsells and makes a Better Album then 50 cent, they still won’t give Kon The Louis Vuttion Don a XXL Magazine Cover!!!!! But its still Kanye for King Sept. 11 !!!!!!!!!! Let that Monster that is Curtis Fall harder them the Twin Towers!!!!!!!!!! Fuck 50!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/mrmanish707 Mr. Manish

    I’m Buying both albums i dont care who sales more but i know fifty cup will sell more than kanye west… just because kayne had his lil outburst about females and such he not as hot as he once was.

  • Tucky

    Kanye will win because his fans aren’t as fickle. He hasn’t had a backlash yet, and 50 has.
    Only Eminem and Dr Dre (in hip hop) will beat Kanye’s first week numbers.

    BOTH 50 CENT & Kanye WEST dropped TWO “hit ALBUMS” so far.

    I HAVE BOTH OF 50′S CD’s…ONE BOOTLEG; ONE ORIGINAL COPY.

    I DON’T HAVE ANY KANYE WEST CD’s…NOT EVEN A BOOTLEG.

    SO…SHADY/AFTERMATH/G-UNIT GETS my $15 in September.

  • SC Boy

    I think the second week sales will much more tell the story of who has the best album. Word of mouth is the best seller or killer of an album.

  • YoungLL

    SMART BY KANYE… WHEN 50 CENT DROPS ALL HELL GONNA’ BREAK LOOSE CAUSE HIS GOING WORLD WIDE… I PREDICT 50 CENT WILL SELL 900,000 TO A MILLION COPIES THE FIRST WEEK… KANYE WILL PROBALLY DO LIKE 500,000 TO 700,000 COPIES JUST BECAUSE OF 50 CENT. THEY’RE LIKE THE YING & THE YANG

  • g-man

    why can’t we be happy that hip hop may get some hype again and hope that we dominate the charts wit these two guys

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    Niggaz really don’t fuck with 50′s Music like they did back when he was HOT, now niggas still fucks with Kanye becuz he makes GOOD MUSIC(no pun intended) and becuz he is a more likable person as far as a Artist than 50. Even so-called “Hood Niggaz” don’t really fuck with 50 Cent like that, they bump Weezy( who isn’t a Genuine Hood nigga) anywayz EVERYBODY can agree that they at least like 1 of Kanye’s Songs, and he gets a lotta PLAY from White America becuz they see him as a “Musical Genuis”, but, people see 50 “Interscope” Cent as a Gimmick by Hebrews who owe % 45 of America to make more Money off of a Modern Day Minstrel Show. But it’s still Kanye 4 King Sept. 11 !!!!!!!!!

  • http://xxlmag.com YOUNGLL

    LET ME CHANGE THAT…KANYE WILL SELL A MILLION COPIES AND BETTER AND 50 CENT WILL DO 500,000 OR LESS. BECAUSE 50 IS NO WHERE AS CREATIVE AS KANYE. I JUST LIKE GETTING YOU 50 FANS HYPE

  • Nate

    One thing that we do KNOW.

    A lot of people who do buy one will go ahead and
    cop the other on the same day. So many fans who only buy big names or buy like 3-4 albums only per year, will just cop both. Lots of people who claim they hate one or both, will want to at least listen to the beats, so they can sample or use instrumental for their own wack-a$$ mixtapes.

  • Hova

    they both gonna sell decent numbers i think kanye put his album out on the same date as fifth to get the publicity think about it.

  • MC

    Everyone needs to realize this is going to be very close numbers. Everyone is an idiot to say ” kanye 200, and 50 will do 600. It is going to be very close!! kanye’s last album did 900,000 first week you idiots!, 50′s did 1.1 million in 5 days. Im buying both because I like both of them. overall kanyes album will be better though. His albums require a lot more talent. But i do hope 50 sells more.

  • Ryan

    Who cares who wins, cause anyone who buys those albums loses cause they’ve gone out specifically to make the rich richer and themselves poorer, and they’ve done it by purchasing two sub par “hip hop” albums. Idiots……….

  • http://xxlmagazine.com Trap

    Kanye move your release date you dumb fuck. You say at the end of the your trying to sell records so why in the fuck would you go up against 50 and settle for number 2. If was 50, i’d call you a fucking idiot.

  • http://XXL BUCK THE WORLD

    50 gonna sale more because he not only has rap fans but hes got pop fans also so you know they gonna buy his album. I mean Kanyne his new song is good but I haven’t heard it on the radio yet and thats the only way people are gonna buy his album I mean come on not all white people watch 106 and Park

  • Rob (from around the way)

    I just love that KanYe is making hiphop exciting again. This face off right here makes it a win for Hip hop by itself. I like mixtape 50 before he even made it on Shady better, and KanYe makes classic’s. I’m going with Graduation.

  • Hova

    u saying 50 pop and kanyeezy aint hahaha.they know how to corner the market if its pop that sells thats what theyll do that 50 and timberlake track is pop and i bet its gonna be a big hit.they aint hiphop they hip pop

  • http://xxlmag.com ILLP

    THEN AGAIN IT’S MORE LIKE KANYE ALL DAY ALL MONTH. KNAYE SEPT 11. 50 WILL SELL BUT I CAN’T RELATE TO HIM ANY MORE. BECAUSE IT’S CRAZY HOW HE TALKS ALL THIS HOOD STUFF BUT HE’S NOT IN THE HOOD ANY MORE. BETWEEN HIS BUSINESSES AND HIS CELEBRITY AND MONEY HE’S MVOING AROUND THE WORLD. KANYE DOESN’T TRY TO BE STREET JUST DOING GOOD MUSIC. I GOTTA GO WITH KANYE AND LOOKING FOR THAT NEW JARULE ALBUM 2.

  • http://XXL Brown Sugar

    Either way….this iz really good for hip hop

    i might jus cop both

  • REESE

    I THINK KANYE COULD DO IT.

    KANYE PUTS UP BIG NUMBERS.

    “LATE REGISTRATION” DID ARROUND 8OO,OOO ON THE FIRST WEEK OUT IF IM NOT MISTAKEN.

    KANYE IS WELL LIKED.

    I DON’T KNOW ABOUT “GRADUATION” DOING THAT WELL BUT WE’LL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.

    SEPTEMBER 11TH WILL BE INTERESTING TO WATCH. LOL

  • http://www.myspace.com/soundchildcrew Bryant Oden

    The real winners are the parent compnaies of both artist record labels which is Universal Music Group. And people need to wake up te labels are still making money… Don’t let this talk of slumping sales have you thinking they are going broke. Its just a method to weed out artists who come to major record labels with something to offer as opposed to a handout.

    I’m an A&R consultant…I know what goes on. Theres more to this business than 50 Cent and Kanye releasing on the same day. Jimmy Iovine, L.A. Reid, And Jay-Z are all business patners its almost like a conflict of interest. In all actuality what I’m saying here is this is all part of the marketing plan…If Kanye could keep his big mouth shut and let it happen I’m sure it will be quite successful. And it is. We are talking aren’t we. lol

Im gonna get both, but i honestly i hope kanye does better bcuz 50 aint spittin real shit no more! Let me know if im wrong but didnt 50 say: ” When im out in NY its dutches and phillies and when im out L.A. its wraps and swishers” and the turn around and do an interview wit xxl and he says that he doesnt smoke!

    Peeps should remember that 50s gulliest shit isnt gonna be his singles. His dopest tracks are never singles and his worst tracks are always the singles, think about that and you know im right. I wanna see the total WORLDWIDE sales cause I bet you 50 kills this dude in worldwide sales cause not everyone around the world is a hater/wanna be rapper like the US. Real Spit.
    It’ll be close, but very interesting because like dude above said, they’re total opposties of each other, and yes Kanye did have a backlash from him being a bitch about awards and that bush shit, all that dumb shit he did, alot of white folks aint fuckin wit him cause of that.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com star

    Ye is an artist with real creativity. He appeals to the avg. person. 50′s most recent shit is sounding like his last two albums and “umpteen” mix tapes. And yeah, I got 50 cd’s too for people who think I’m hatin’, but you cant put the same shit over a different beat with a hook but so many times before it gets real stale. Plus karma is a bitch….I think thats why 50 is getting the cold shoulder now, its something that cant be explained….either way, the showdown is good buzz for hip hop. plus it sounds like its in good ol’ hip hop fun…nothing sinister (at least not yet…)

  • Cuban Link

    I think both of them arent gonna do too well just cause of the date they chose, 9/11.Cats will be upset and remembering 9/11, who wants to drop on a day like that?No matter what happens, people will feel funny talking about it on a day like that.

    and at Bre Bre, I actually think white people would feel better grabbing 50s, to prove theyre not self consious of themselves

  • Cuban Link

    thats true though about whoever said Ye was just having fun.I mean he just said Id be cool getting #2 on an exciting day like this than #1 on another.50 wants that top spot no matter what day it is, Fiddy probably deserves it more for the fact alone

  • Walker V.W.

    I hope Kanye wins in sales but damn. Both of them were badass to listen to and now I don’t even understand how they’re selling anything at all. I wanna hear “Thru The Wire” and “Jesus Walks” not this new weird stuff. Stay true.

  • darius14

    i think kanye will win

    sure 50 did 1.14 mill in 4 days last time but remember at that time he and the unit were considered hot, and when his album came out, HE HAD 3 HITS IN THE TOP 5 ON THE BILLBOARD CHART (“candy shop”, “disco inferno”, “how we do” with his good buddy the game)

    and in the weeks after his album was released, he had Just A lil bit which got #3 and hate it or love it with the game which got #2… so you see there was so much hype… this time he got no big national single…

    amusement park #121
    straight to the bank# 32
    i get money #68
    she wants it- yet to chart

    i think curtis will sell 850 k and kanye will sell 863k its gonna be really close

  • http://www.myspace.com/thekidpolo The Kid Polo

    I’ve spent the last 20 minutes running through everyones comments/concerns/opinions/ and everyone seems biased from the real picture.

    One.. When was the last time you heard 50 go at bigger issue other than himself? For Ex.: Who’s the “Whore” of the game or “Who Isn’t Selling Records Anymore” or “Which Label is a Graveyard?”
    Kanye.. “The President Hates Black People” on National/Worldwide TV?
    Who’s the Real Gangster? And Define the word “Gangster”..
    “Gangster” in all sense means “Someone who stands up for what they believe in.”
    50′s a gangster.. as an Image.
    Kanye’s a gangster.. he defied the leader of the free world for his people!.. Alot of reinvention will happen on 9.11.07

    2.. it does not matter if you spend your $15 on making either of the artists richer.. it’s deeper than that.. it’s called “Feeling” & “Influence”.. Just like crack addicts would sell their belongings to Drug Dealers ’cause they love that “High” that certain dealer gives them.. but the crack this time is what this whole forum is talking about.. Hip Hop.
    The high will be determined by the buyer.. will you buy weed.. just to get that “High” feeling or buy that crack.. that’ll make you lose yourself from reality?

    My Opinion.. Kanye always served Crack & always get a person HIGH and keeps escalating to new HIGHS.. 50 served Crack when he began.. now the high isn’t how it was before.. ’cause after awhile you got tired of the same HIGH ’cause it just got you to that certain extent.

    3. The Battle Of The Titan? The Ultimate Hip Hop Competition? Can We Be Happy That Hip Hop is finally having a big Event?
    See it how you would.. not everyone can have the same views.. Way I Love To See It is..

    Gangster Rap Vs. Rap
    Difference? The Feeling you get once again.
    Hood Niggas Love Their Hood Music..
    & Good Music Lovers Love Their G.O.O.D Music.

    and last but not least..
    50 made “Power Of A Dollar”, “Get Rich Or Die Trying” (Album & Soundtrack), & The Massacre.. 4 Albums For Hustlers & “Other” Masses.. But what has he done that Jay-Z hasn’t already done other than new business ventures?

    Kanye made “College Dropout”, “Late Registration”, & “Late Orchestration”.. An Album Per Summer He’s Locked himself in a room to make.. So He Does Deserves To Do His Numbers.

    Music Is A Drug..
    Everyone has their own dealer to give them the High they want and they’ll keep supporting that dealer so they can either.. Wait For That New High.. Or Repetitive High.

    Hip Hop Is My Culture.. and My Crack.

    DUH every1 knows 50 will sell more. they just want kanye to. its like the floyd mayweather vs de la hoya. evry1 wanted de la hoya to win but knew mayweather was gonna do it. I want Curtis to sell more because no matter what 50 cent is still a legend. Both his albums were DIAMOND (10 million or more) and dope as hell. KAnye’s were hot and creative but not as good as 50′s. CURTTIS will sell more. And dont u think Kanye just did this for publicity and to promote his album? DUh

    yah actin like kanye aint selling internationally either…this nigga selling in the U.K. and japan….dont get me wrong i like 50 but kanye is more creative and gets better every time you hear this nigga rap…kanye sold over 900,000 with late Registration in its first week and you niggas is crazy if you think he goin to sell less….he aint even fall off ass much as 50 has since then….hes to consistent….
