Billboard Predicts Kanye West Will Outsell 50 Cent

kanye-west6.jpgAccording to Billboard.biz, Kanye West is predicted to outsell 50 Cent in this week’s highly contested and publicized battle of new albums. Executives with three of the major record labels who project first week sales indicated that Kanye’s Graduation is on pace to sell between 575,000 and 700,000 copies. 50 Cent’s LP, Curtis, on the other hand, is being projected to move between 500,000 and 600,000 units. Billboard also reports that country singer Kenny Chesney’s album, Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates, is closing in on 50 with sales between 400,000 and 550,000. All of the aforementioned numbers, though, are predictions. Nielsen SoundScan will finalize first week sales on Sunday and release the official numbers on Wednesday, September 19.

  • GUNIT SOLDIER

    They can’t possible have such accurate numbers to make such a crazy assumption. 50 has got that fire that makes you bob ya head, i don’t get that from kanye. Curtis is way better then Graduation, and from the few stores I went to there were way less curtis albums on the shelves. Just wait til wednesday when we’ll all see that 50 reigns supreme. GGG G-UNIT!

  • noah

    How Do you predict sales after one day?

  • brebre

    I COPPED BOTH BUT I GOTTA GIVE IT TO 50 ON THIS ONE. CURTIS IS FROM START TO FINISH, SOLID ASS BANGERS. NO FILLERS. BUT GRADUATION, KANYE’S RAP GETS REALLY OLD QUICK. THAT UP AND DOWN TONE, YA KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT. AND KANYE CLEARLY MAKES SONGS TARGETED TO WHITE HIPSTER FOLKS (THOSE WHO HAVE SOME BLACK FRIENDS HERE AND THERE LOL). CURTIS WINS. I HOPE PPL KNOW THAT.

  • Rich Arte

    2nd Fucka….kill YOSELF.

    The only good songs on Curtis was the Curtis 187 joint, Fire wit Buck, and Ayo Tech and I get Money. The rest of the album is filler material.

    That Graduation shit is timeless. Champions kinda sound like GoodLife, but they both hot..

    I copped both cd’s and the Kanye shit has a groovier feel to it, that Curtis shit, we already heard half the album before it came out.

    Copp graduation!!!

    So after all this marketing, you mean to tell me 50 might not out sell T.I.? Didn’t T.I. do like 600k his 1st week?

  • HIP HOP

    i think Kanye West & 50 Cent are both great. But Kanye West is real hip hop, 50 Cent is a rapper. Kanye West ended up winning this little contest.

    No TI sold 480k the first week.
    Yo this good for hip hop we haven’t had a platinum album since Jay last solo and these two off first day numbers outselling every hip hop cd that’s come out this year. Rap down 30% and with these numbers we might be able to soften the blow a little. They can’t set the numbers back right alone.

  • MC

    NO. T.I. did 466,000 first week of his new album

  • GUNIT SOLDIER

    Not everyone preorders their shit… it’s been one day, haters just comin outta the wood work cuz of an assumption. I’ll wait til wednesday to see.

  • dez

    if you listen to i get money 10 times you dont wanna hear it anymore not the same for cant tell me nothing kanye will win in the long run..

  • Sin-cere

    There both good albums. I’m surprised that 50 put a good album out. Considering the last album was average. Kayne West album is nice but not as nice as everyone is saying 4 Mics. 50 Cent is nice- but not bad everyone is saying 4 mics. Either way to good purchases!

  • O.B.J.

    yo guys grow up cos u never ever compare 50 to KANYE.wat the fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • GUNIT SOLDIER

    How can they censor a song on this dude’s cd. You can’t even isten to the song it’s so chopped up. That shit is weeeeak. CURTIS IS FIIIIRE.

    OH AND IS IT JUST ME……….

    OR WOULD “BARRY BONDS” HAVE BEEN BETTER IF IT WERE JAY-Z INSTEAD OF WANE…….

    I JUST FEEL LIKE ONE OF HOVA’S RHYME FLOWS WOULD HAVE SOUNDED BETTER ON THE TRACK……..

    NOT TO MENTION THE RHYME’S, SIMILES, AND METAPHORES WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER…..

    BUT THEN AGAIN THATS JUST ME……KANYE WILL OUT-SELL 5O.

  • O-Mitch

    Y’all ALL silly,50 has went diamond twice in his career….while kanye hasnt went diamond with both cds COMBINED!!! History is the best thing to go by not those silly dudes, those are the same people that said joe budden was going platinum and he didnt even sell 100k!!!!

  • Fire

    I bought Graduation, and that album is straight up awesome. The lyrics actually have substance, and the music is good. I didn’t hear ANY songs on Curtis that made me want to buy it, and I’m a 50 fan! He has no real substance for the most part, but Kanye does. People who don’t like music with substance must not be very intelligent.

  • GUNIT SOLDIER

    Wait didn’t Master P have an album come out today too? How many units he move? 5?

  • brebre

    IT’S ALL UP TO WHITE PPL. SO WHITE PPL DICK SUCKER KANYE MIGHT HAVE A CHANCE BUT STILL 50 HAS A BETTER ALBUM OUT SO 50 ALL DAY NIGGAZ.

  • Ryan

    Kanye’s Album is vastly superior to 50′s, Plus Kanye was willing to ride for Katrina Victims (while a few other black celebrities more or less tried to show corporate america that they were “good negroes”) If Kanye had released “Everything I am” as the first single, we would not be having this conversation (This was arguably one of Kanye’s best 5 songs)
    All of 50′s albums sound the same, Kanye gives you variety.

  • 20″DubHomies

    Kanye’s album is better hands down, lyrically and production wise. I bought both, and i must say, that the song off kanye’s album with Tpain (which i’ve heard will be his next single) will be on the charts forever. I guarantee it. 50′s album has tracks you can bang to…but the production by half the no-name producers is just lazy.

  • GUNIT SOLDIER

    Oh and wtf where can i buy spider loc’s cd? Bestbuy doesn’t carry his shit? weeeeeeak.

  • DTRIP

    I bought both albums because I just want to take money away from that snap your fingers lean wit it rock wit it down south bullshit…Honestly…50′s CD is doper to ride to and go out to but when your just chillen…that Kanye is doper…they both have their upside…it’s hard to say which is better…reason I say that is because 50′s CD leaked damn near a year ago…I heard straight to the bank around last Cinco De Mayo (Soy Mexicano)..and honestly…I can’t decide because I bumped every single 50 had (except Amusement Park) and liked it…it’s just that the CD seems old already…Kanye’s shit didn’t leak like that…either way…their both makin good music and don’t believe all that bullshit about them not being cool with each other…they already did a song together that’s going to be on 50′s next cd…I’m just glad another one of the “dem” or “boyz” groups ain’t coming out with new shit…I still believe that 50 will outsell though…he is a KILLER at marketing…

  • Freddy(Vega$)

    I heard alot of dudes are buying KanYe’s and Rippin 50s, I bought both and im glad i did, both are fuckin hot!!!

  • JSTYLEZ

    these mutha fuckas both wack…the wackest ones all way sells more..thats white america for you..

  • KrooX

    …yeah, I think “FIRE” is right! I feel da same way bout both albums! I can listen 2 graduation all day long…and Curtis – shhh I jus like 3 tracks or sumthin…

  • jdsfhk

    Atleast this site being fair cuz kanye has more respect now and there not actin like every other site sain kanyes gunna blow him out

  • MEMPHIS TN

    IF KANYE DOES OUTSELL FIF, I DONT THINK ITS BECAUSE FIF’S ALBUM IS NOT GOOD, I FEEL IT WOULD HAPPEN SIMPLY BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF 50………HIPHOP REALLY NEEDS A NEW LOOK. IM SICK AN TIRED OF EVERYONE BLAMING HIPHOP FOR ALL THE NEGATIVE. SOME IS NEGATIVE, BUT I DONT BLAME HIPHOP, I BLAME THE PARENTS. IM TIRED OF HEARING LIL KIDS REPEATING FOUL LANGUAGE THEY HEAR ON THESE ALBUMS. NOW THATS NOT A GOOD LOOK FOR HIPHOP…………….MAYBE KANYE “CAN” SAVE HIPHOP!!!!

    P.S. MTV OUTTA BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES LETTING BRIT PERFORM KNOWING SHE WAS NOT READY. I FEEL THEY DID THAT JUST SO EVERYONE COULD GET A LAUGH OUT OF HER, AN SO THE WEAK ASS MEDIA CAN TALK ABOUT BRIT ALL DAMN YEAR. AFTER TIMBO EVEN SAID HIMSELF HE DIDNT WANT HER ON THE SHOW PERIOD, AN WHAT DO THESE ASSHOLES DO? JUST THE OPPOSITE. WHY DONT PEOPLE STOP TALKING ABOUT HER AN TRY TO HELP AN PRAY FOR HER. THATS WHATS WRONG WIT THIS DAMN COUNTRY!!!

    Then play 15, 16, 17.. Other people make hits, 50 makes complete albums.

  • Cuban Link

    Curtis>>>every album in the last 5 years just for the intro.Best intro EVER

    I just dont get why people like Graduation though, shit seems boring to me.His flow is so lazy, Fiddys album gets me up and pumped.

  • TaZ

    I started off leaning toward ‘Ye ccuz thats my kinda hip hop but these albums are no better than each other. This is like comparing Tribe Called Quest to Biggie. Its just different hip hop. Everyone should download both because u should keep ur money. Arent these two rich enough?? just my opinion. Overall:

    Graduation = Curtis (Both are better than average but faaar from classic.)

  • the truth

    Kanye sold 437,000 first day
    50 sold 310,000 first day

  • Sauce: The Designated Hater

    The truth is that 50 makes “street music” and Kanye makes “G.O.O.D.” music! Honestly, I base my opinions on single and to be honest with you, that shit 50 put out is garbage. Kanye hit home with the phrase “wait ’til I get my money right” cuz brothers are broke these days. Not to many dudes I know can brag about running their city and driving Bentleys. It also helps that Mr. West got Jay on his side. Kanye always seems to bring in some alternative rock band for crossover love (genius). White people like Kanye like lil kids love grandpa pocket change! Still….Hip hop needed this type of exposure.

  • phatsam

    you have to be a certain kind of dude to listen to listen to a whole kanye album i like his musical production but his lyrics are so soft to me its like watching ghost which is a good movie but i cant watch that on the regular i guess i am little harder than 50 cd gets regular play in the cd changer but every body not built like that we have a society thats changing when dudes be defending there so call favorite hard rapper whne he kisses another man on the lips that song stronger sounds like techno music with soft lyrics faghop music and you say thats hot.

  • rocafella bought kanyes album

    thiir is no way kanye sold more jay z had to buy kanyes recordss liek 50 saaid would happen if i were 50 with all da money i got i would do the same thing kanyes doin cuz im sure tat kanye would never sell more tha 50 he never get rich or die trying sold more than all of kanyes albums well see who winss but 50 got it

  • RAZ

    Yo people that is saying Kanye is real hiphop must never have listen to rap until this era. Yo he is trash, he raps bout how he dresses, god, and clothes. Saying he cares bout Katrina how much of his 17 million did he give up? 50 cent is blastin on the streets. Im’a quote Nas “rich kids cop the source, they don’t know bout the blocks we on” Kanye raps for the preppy negro types and white folk.

  • breaksandbreaks

    fuck all dat did yall see the pictures in 50 cent cd case of ciara in a thong

  • troy

    the only good song on 50′s album is ayo technology…

    the only reason that is a good song is because it’s more like timberland and justin timberlake doing the same shit they’ve been doing for a year and a half and letting 50 rap on it…

    the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t matter who is on that song, it would be a hit…50 could rap the ingredients to hamburger helper on that shit and no one would question it…

    what makes kanye west a better artist than 50 is that he’s an evolving artist, who comes out with better, more advanced shit with every album…all of 50′s albums are exactly the same…dude has been running in place since the in the club video…

  • Doobie

    Why do people keep saying that Kanye writes for whites and 50 writes for real blacks (which is kind of funny when 50 is the one in a commercial “conducting” an all-white orchestra like some kind of monkey that they put on display so that everyone can look and be amazed at how he can actually swing both his arns at the same time)? Damn, how perverted have things gotten. I can’t believe that somebody black who actually knows black people outside of what they see on MTV and BET would even say something as retarded as that. Plus, Kanye openly criticizes racist whites on his albums (something that 50 would never do, he knows to stay in line like a good little monkey) as well as doing it (inter)national TV. NO rapper would go more than gold (and even that’s a stretch) if it weren’t for a massive amount of white fans buying their sh*t, so the fact that 50 has sold a gazillion more records than Kanye sure doesn’t support this ass-backwards assertion. And, from my experience, suburban whites in large part like the most shallow and violent rap there is. It’s like a fantasy world for them, a way to escape from their “mundane” reality. Only someone who appreciates black people as full, multi-dimensional actual human beings would listen to Kanye. I hate to turn this into a race issue because it’s really not, fans of all races that respect honest art will always recognize when someone is genuine.

    Peace.

  • Sauce: The Designated Hater

    I agree with you Doobie to a certain extent! I still say that Kanye has a better chance. Believe me, I work with a lot of white people and when they come in sing ” La La Lala, wait ’til I get my money right” early in the morning, there’s a pretty good chance that they’re gonna go buy the album. Raekwon once said “You gotta come provacative, nigga” thus the decline in 50′s sales since “Get rich or die trying”. It’s the same ‘ol 50. All you G-U-ONHISNUTS fans have to give credit where it is due and the truth is Kanye just has a better album.

  • Me Nigga!

    Kanye’s album is better. Sorry. I would say burn 50′s album from the internet because you’ll be mad if you buy it, but I just couldn’t do it. Not because of the guilt I may have. I just can’t roll with dude. Not even to burn his CD. I don’t know about the rest of the nation, but in Memphis we have saying that Project Pat said which goes “Now only weak niggas like to start bull shit”. Dude starts un-necessary beef. And I can guarantee if he would have the same niggas on his album that he diss his shit would sell a lot more. And 50 ain’t stopped singing ever since “21 Questions”. I both of them the best of blessings, but I just can’t roll with a dude like 50.

  • Fire

    Raz,
    How the hell can you say that Kanye writes for whites and 50 crafts for blacks? That is a dumb and judgmental statement. You should read this comment.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I’m sick and tired of people dividing everything up into this racial bullshit when music is music and people are people regardless of what race they are or music they like. People that think otherwise must have a pretty narrow view of races all over in addition to their own race? What’s black or white behavior? You can’t act black or white because they’re colors, not cliques. You can only act like someone with a certain attitude, not a color. Anyone who disagrees needs to open their eyes and change or shut up because they have nothing worthwhile to contribute on that issue.

    Look from where I see it both these cats sat down and thought real hard about bringing platinum status back to NYC, what is the best way but not create hype around they release albums?? I say big up for both for bringing back Hip Hop to the East side am tired of that dirty south shit ya feel??

    ^Kanye is from Chicago…

    yeah, and Chicago is more easily associated with the south than the east. He has been quoted saying that the best rapper in the game now is LIL WAYNE.
