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.”
