Kanye West and 50 Cent to Appear on BET’s 106th & Park on September 11

curt-grad2.JPGKanye West and 50 Cent will both appear on BET’s 106th & Park on Tuesday (September 11), the day that both of their highly anticipated new albums hit stores. According to the Associated Press, BET is pulling out all of the stops for the monumental television event, even recruiting ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith to offer viewers a statistical breakdown of the opponents. The prospect of an on-air face off between the two powerhouses first arose during a visit to the show by 50 last month during which hosts Terrence and Rocsi asked the G-Unit boss if he’d be willing to debate Kanye on air on the day their albums dropped. Over the past several weeks, the buzz around the battle for the charts has built into frenzy, with both artists predicting victory and fans choosing sides. According to Stephen Hill, senior VP of music programming and talent for BET, the rivalry is all in good fun. “I don’t think it’s a battle, I think it’s a lot of fun,” Hill said. “I think Kanye will tell you he moved his date to 50′s date to draw this type of attention, to create this marketing opportunity. We’re gonna have fun on Sept. 11, the only place they are going to be together.”

  • SOUTHERNBREED

    i like both niggas but,i have to give it to kanye.
    he got that soul music and he speaks about things that are important.
    just listen to “Diamonds” from the last album.
    that sparked the whole blood diamond talk in africa and other celebritys started noticing it.
    even paul wall went over there!
    now 50 is the hood aspect,he talks about the same ol’shit but on a different beat!
    but in the end,50 gonna win because people like drama!
    it’s sad to say but,it’s true!
    but kanye got my vote!

  • ya boy

  • ye bitch

    “I think Kanye will tell you he moved his date to 50’s date to draw this type of attention, to create this marketing opportunity.”

    ^^^
    Actually kanye had that date first

  • THE TRUTH

    It’s a pretty simple idea. Imagine two very distinct and outwardly attractice fruits. You bite into one and its really sweet at first, but then that sweetness overpowers everything else and pretty soon you’re to the point where you can only eat that one bite because the taste is not deep, complex and lingering. Then there’s the other fruit. The taste might not be as sweet upon first enjoyment but its deep, intrinsic flavors become highlighted the more you digest it, unloading more depth and intricacy with every chew. I don’t need to explain who represents the former and who represents the latter. Ultimately this entire marketing scheme is great for hiphop and the adolescent african american community will rejoice both artists with equal vigor. But the masses, the mainstream, everybody above ground, will appreciate that deep complex flavor of the second fruit and the quick taste of the first fruit will be forgotten soon afterwards.

  • RW

    I’ve listened to both. 50′s whack as fuck, wit only two songs that are good(I Got Money, Curtis 187).Kanye’s better really.Beats and lyrics aren’t ask good as they should, but a great album nonetheless

  • Trizzle

  • twizzy

    50 cent is wack, kids, suburban white boys listen to his crap, 50 is fake, KANYE IS HIP HOP, 50 IS HIP POP, NOT EVEN, HE’S JUST WACK. GRADUATION IS GOING TO SELL

  • TaZ

    I got both albums and if people listen to Curtis and consider that quality hip hop, you need to move to queens and be shot. Beats are nice but fifty cant bring the heat anymore. I mean that shit gets old. Where is the substance??
    Kanye is a fucking genius. Daft Punk beat on a single? What the fuck!!! Amazing dude…

    And i know im gonna hear it but dont worry, i will support my artist. i just like to preview things before i buy them. So suck it corporate America!!!

  • Winning Team Bitches

  • KiLLa_CitY_Ch1eFeR

    First let me start off by sayin that 50 cent is a wack ass rapper!!(if u wanna call him a rapper) That nigga thinks he’s bigger then life itself. Dont get me wrong, as far as the business side of things, the nigga is a mastermind, to bad he cant back that up with some decent lyrical skills!!! As far as Kanye goes, he’s koo, but I think some people be ridin’ him a lil to much. He’s put some(keyword:SOME) hot shit out, but nothin 2 make me a true believer, that he should be considered in my top 5!!!

    As far as who sells more, let me jus point out that if Chamillionaire had the marketing that these to have, then he would definetly blow both of them small fish out the water!!! I say within a month or 2 after all 3 albums drop(Curtis,Graduation, and Ultimate Victory)Chamillion will have the most records sold!!! And u can quote me on thizz shit when it happins!!!

  • Mimi

    50 cent is hip hop!
    if u gettin both albums then u aint a real hip hop fan!!
    dont get graduation! trust me!
    curtis is real! i like kanye west but his songs sounds like techno or some s**t like that!

    COP CURTIS!!

  • http://xxlmag.com U Haters eat drippy 1′s dot com

    Its a stunt. . . if ur broke ass don’t get both, How can you say who’s better?. . .50 got more time in the game, more success and has the controversy that everybody loves. . .” kiss me like baby do lil wayne” ha ha. . . My mom has both K-west albums. . . He is a unique person in HIP HOP right now, a master in his art . . . Stop acting broke and get both. . . Whats that $20. . .

  • me mf er

    fuck that both of them suck!!! but they do have some nice single’s out fuck it i’ll get them both
    hold up for minute let me check limewire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dj dezzy

    i heard both albums and i gotta say, 50 got the heat for the clubs, for your rides, for yo speakers. kanye should jus be in your crib, the volume turned down.. i aint taking sides coz both artists have different styles and as they say, its like watchin a baseball team against a basketball team in a football game. so im coppin both. but if i gotta say which is betta, curtis.

  • american dream

    on 9/11- 5o gona put kanye down like how the government put the towers down..

  • jerzey

    It would be some shit (But not surprising) if that Country singer Cheseny or whatever the fuck his name is outsells them both the first week, that guy sell huge units.

  • Bugz Boogie

    Are you guys on here dumb? Just go and buy who you think is making the best music and stop making these dumb comments. The youth is getting dumber and dumber(Whats considered good music these days) A Bay Bay!!!! Hahaha is dance music The Gorilla and the Teddy Bear both make good music but I heard both of the leaked albums and honestly 50′s album goes way harder. Pac said it best dont have to bump it but please respect it. I’m just wondering why you idiots in the states are worried about this because they really arent. The U.S sucks when it comes to respecting its artist thats why Europe is light years ahead of us. I like both artist but fif is going to kill this guy internationally in sales!!!!

  • Yannck
