Kanye West Dominates Sales Race, Outsells 50 Cent by 266,000 Units

graduation1.jpgKanye West has emerged as the clear winner in his heated sales race with 50 Cent. According to an early report from Billboard.com, Kanye’s new LP, Graduation will post first week sales totaling 957,000 tomorrow morning when Nielsen Soundscan reports the final tally. The astonishing total will place Graduation ahead of 50’s latest, Curtis, by 266,000 units and stands as the highest first week total since ‘Ye’s last album Late Registration. The two albums will easily snag the No. 1 and 2 spots on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Kenny Chesney, the country music star who warned 50 and Kanye not to count him out of the race, will land at No. 3 after moving 387,000 copies of his new disc, Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates.

    wow deez guys sold more than any rapper in the first week in the last two years.now hip hop might get boring again

  • vincent

    Kanye is pop, 50 sells rap, can’t compare, but 50 did loose at his own game. But its just sad, that whole thing of out selling people, very fucking sad, hip hop’s gone pop and all these cats keep on playing it tough, come on!!! Hip hop is pop, admit it.
    I suggest Nas’ latest joint, because there’s nothing like rap made with your heart, as opposed to some shit sandwich made with money on your mind.

    go on and become that 1 700 001 bitch or have some digninity and go get yourself some real music

  • http://50cent.com Non-Bias

    This is not even in my character to be doin this internet bloggin shit…but seriously ppl think about it at the end of the day nobody lost but the countless amount of ppl stoppin their everyday lives to focus on these niggas…yes including myself I bought both fuckin albums both are bangin in there own right! Kanye may outsell 50 first week but wait for th 70% drop from Def Jam next week..Both of these niggas played the buying public like fools…but honestly this is the best shit to ever happen to hip-hop in a long time. We need more of this shit get of 50 dick.. From 03-06 every body was fuckin with Fif now it fuck em…riiight. Hip-Hop lives. This is my first and final blog for life for real this shit is senseless ppl. The same nigga that was on stage with Ye on 106 & Park is now on a bangin ass remix with Fif and Diddy.

  • http://xxlmag.com troyel

    i love hiphop like the rest of ya’ll. i went out a got both for the sake of hiphop to support two brotha’s. u may not like what 50 is saying but his album is better musically and flows all the way through with no skips. lets be honest Ya will be the truth in like 2 more albums the only song which you feel Ya is on the Big Bro track. he makes great beats but 50 makes good gangsta rap and commercial shit. in his last 3 albums he has at least 20 hits. dont forget games album! lets be honest also nobody lost the both made money and 50 didnt need no more money!!!!!!

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    NewsFlash: To that last dude, BREBRE, um I don’t if u learn this in school or not, but, Jewish people aren’t technically “White”. To be considered White you have to be Anglo-Saxon,Irish,French, Or of European descent, a Jewish person is of Hebrew descent dumbass!!!! Jewish people who have lineage in Israel are different than White People because normal White People don’t like Jews, just ask the KKK, Nazi’s and Southerns. Anyways Kanye is On Top of the Game now because he makes Great Music, and because he actually cares about the quality of what he put out for the public to hear wheras Curtousy Jackson went and got beats from a Cooning Negroe(Timbaland that you son), some back of the alley producers(The kids that made “I Get Money” at their Local High School), and One beat by The Good Doctor(Dre gave Curtsy the wackest track he ever made!), and a list of White Boys who play Black Music(Justin and Robin Thicke that you 2 kids!), so who is really a Sell Out? Catering to a White Audience? Revitalizing Black Stereotypes: Killing,Gangsterisms, 7th Grade Lyrics,Professional Cooning? 400 Million Dolllar Man Curtousy Jackson wanna throw a Fit cuz he lost to The Louis Vuttion Don!!!!!!

  • juan

    bull shit def jam has bought albums for kanye

  • Gkid12345

    ok and he beat him by how many copies? 200 and something thousand just like 50 said would happen. Dont front like ya don’t see it. Jeezy sold 300k in his 1st week second album and we kno thats a lie cuz then he slides to number 18 week 2. Jay sold 680 and then slides to 150k. Cheaters

  • profit

    rumers that 50 Cent – Curtis Is 2x Platinum Worldwide if thats tru he the champ

  • Young 50

    Man both Kanye and 50 albums are good, but I bought 50′s album. To me the only reason Ye outsold him because of what 50 said about retirement. Everybody hate u when u on top he’s the Barry Bonds of rap without the steroids. Ye on the other hand needs to stop crying about winning awards the shit is getting old there is no excuse for that. I’m from Chicago that dude don’t be here. That dude stay in Beverly Hills in always saying Chi-town. If Ye wouldn’t have pushed his album back 50 would be platinum right now.

  • Ali

    hip hop lives……this is great 4 hip hop….shows theres still alotta real fans who don’t buy in 2 this commercial crap….& 50 isn’t even that compared 2 tha rest like soulha boy hurricane chris lil boosie shit like that…..Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ was tha shit but 50 lost it…….like ICEE said tha winner is hip hop

  • RealTalk

    The people have spoken. Real hiphop wins. If you thought Kanye’s album was trash, you don’t like rap music. Go listen to Christina Agulera or somethin. I’m not going to trash 50′s album because I haven’t heard it yet, but the people have spoken in that regard too. They like the type of music he makes as well, and like it or not 50 Cent makes hiphop music too. So in light of this Kanye victory, I think if the record labels are smart and wanted to make that money, they will market other types of hiphop more potently… the people like club hiphop and gangsta rap but they also want some real shit too.

  • Mpire Mpire

    Yo man, i feel what beej is sayin man!!! 50 cent is wack, he has I Get Money and Fire, only 2 good songs on his album, thats cos its Dre’s shit!!! This guy is a wannabe gangsta!!! he raps about selling coke and killin people, when is he doing that? How can you be so gangsta when u don’t come out your house? 50 cent=Bitch ass nigga! Go cop Ja Rule the Mirror on Nov 13th to see 50 cent really cry like a bitch!!!! Mpire/Murda Inc till i die homie! Still breathin!!!!

    @BREBRE, quit bitchin, you startin to sound like 50… and by the way, who you think bought 50′s first album??? It went 8 times platinum….aint that many niggas checkin for Fif’…suck it up or suck him off. damn.

    @What it Do…The artwork probley cost a million, but i bet you prefer seein 50′s pubes…tape that to your wall.

    why don’t you two put your pennies together and go copp as many Curtiss albums as u can afford…and pass em out to anybody that will listen, that should increase his second week sales.
    and to everybody sayin that 50 don’t care he got money…..oh, he cares…and it hurts his heart to know that more people spent their money on Kanye’s project than his. Kanye has a great album, 50′s sounded like a bunch of watered-down singles and filler material. Props to Ye, the people have spoken.

  • bizzle

    I thought 50 was supposed to retire if kanye sold more? 50 talk out of his ass way to much. 50 you can still retire though…nobody will miss your garbage played out music, only wiggers buy 50′s shit.

  • HIP HOP

    Man I hate people who are saying hip hop wins…

    Rap music is a form of HIP HOP….HIP HOP IS A CULTURE… Hip Hop embraces Rap Music, Gangsta Rap, Dance Rap, R&B – Both Kanye and 50 are Hip Hop.

    Top to Bottom – 50 has a better album, but 50 saturated the market too much by releasing 4 singles before his album came out (Ayo, I get Money, Amusement Park, and Straight to the Bank). The when Follow My Lead leaked, that 5 songs off his album that’s out in the streets. Many people felt like they already heard his album by the time it dropped.

    50 Should have stuck with his initial release date.

    Still 700k is nothing to slouch about, Big ups to Kanye for 950k.

    But really 2nd and 3rd week album sales lets you know if you album is a classic or not. 1ST week sales are alot about the hype, after that is all about the material.

Def Jam is too damn cheap to buy 200,000 of Kanye’s albums, have yall seen the Artwork on Fabolous Album? Rhianna has had number One Hit singles and still NEVER went double Platnium, why if Def Jam buy albums then don’t you think that every Def Jam artist would go at least Platnium? Fishy Scent is just mad thatr the lil Kids on Ritalin who ride the lil yellow bus to school didn’t spend their allowances on his Trashy CD.

  • Stonyman

    50 put out the same album material he has been putting out the last 2 albums. It was good for Get Rich or Die Trying but after that it is just stale. None of it was an improvement hell 50 should stick to guest starring on peoples tracks because his verses are way better then the shit sandwich of an album he put out this last time. Kanye on the other hand went and made GOOD music and all you fucks can do is hate. Well hate on dipshits because you are only fucking yourself.

It’s not really a surprise that ye out sold fif, ye has a much bigger fan base, releases much better albums, and his fans will actually buy his disc rather than illegally dl it. ‘get rich’ was fif’s only good album, and his singles have all sucked. ‘i get money’ is straight garbage and prob has the most annoying chorus and beat.

  • Who Dat ?

    Truth be told the image of a gansta rapper is what white suburban folk have perceived and unfortunately there have been people like 50 who have brought this perception to life. I cannot imagine any black male in urban America who believes that 50 is a gansta or who believed that Ja rule was thugged out (murder ? huh). Yet real ganstas like Kenneth Supreme Griffin are not even known to some of these folks.

    Kanye is a an artist period. For the white folk AND for the black. Unfortunately some black folk disagree with this and call Kanyes gay ( or some shit like that ) when the truth is that they ( the blacks who take on this thug image as perceived by the folk ) are the ones getting played. To the “lil nigga” who thinks I am talking trash , just wait, when you are 30 plus years and all you have is your high school diploma and mouths to feed then you are going to want to be gansta for real.

    At that time 50 will have a billion dollars…I guess you could approach him then and ask for some change or the money you spent on his cds. In the time being when fisty scent is talking about getting money you oughta say shut the fuck up- wait till I get my money right

  • Screwhead

    50 Cent had the better album overall. I heard both when they leaked and I truly was amazed at the album 50 put together. I went out and bought his! 50 gon win overall, this just the first week!

  • LightsOut

    Everyone keeps talking about how DefJam had to cheat to beat 50. But do you realize the 50 sold just over half of what his last album did on the first week. 1.1 million for Massacre and only 600k and change for Curtis. That right there should be a testiment that he’s fell off. Regardless of what Kanye sold, 50 was no where near what he’s used to selling.

  • Trackflow

    I’m not surprised that Kanye sold more than 50. Graduation was a really good album and it was worth getting. 50′s album Curtis wasn’t good at all. I kept skipping tracks and it sounded just like his last album The Massacre. 50 to me doesn’t not know how to grow with his music. In all reality, I feel that nobody relates to his music anymore. Kids from 13-25 are all not in the streets busting guns, so they don’t really feel that. Kanye you feel more because you could relate on what he’s talking about and plus it’s coming straight from his heart. He loves this music and cares about the quality of music he puts out. What people love is being real and truthful to the public. That’s all really they want.

    After waiting for months for 50′s album to be released (I didn’t appreciate having to wait extra time for a stupid PR stunt either), I anxiously went to the record store on the morning of the 11th. I didn’t buy Kanye’s album in order to help my boy 50… but I might as well have bought Michael Jackson’s album instead of 50′s. It would have likely been more gangsta. It’s official – 50 has lost his way, his roots, and definitely his grit and grime… singing love songs and jingy club tunes – and he sucks at both. And I’ve lost my favorite rapper. I hope somebody with some balls and talent will step up soon to take his place. It’s been real, 50.

    This is great for hip-hop… with so many rap cds going #1! Check…Fab, T.I, Common, Nas and Talib. Hip-Hop wins!! Plus who care any more about who’s buying the cds? Get offthat bullshit!! If it a good cd,or artist you like… BUY IT!!!

  • phatsam

    if it wasn’t for the hate for 50 success’s kanye would have never sold that with sales being the way they have been recently .i think its good for hiphop but lets be real 50 would have still done the same numbers or even more with out this beef because nobody has an agenda with ye so the people that purchased 50 album would have bought it with out the competition at the end of the we all no who will be number one one the forbes list next year and big brother cant even change that

  • Cuban Link

    this is a good look, fuck Kanye and 50, at least that cracker Kenny got down at number 3!

    and at Phat Sam, no shit Fiddy will be #1, he could have sole 10 copies but will still be number one for that vitamin water money.

    BULLSHIT. IN A LONG RUN, 50 GON OUTSELL HIM SINCE HE TRULY HAS A BETTER ALBUM. WE WILL SEE, HATERS.

    P.S) THIS IS THE POWER OF WHITE PPL. AND WHITE PPL LOVE KANYE. KANYE = JEW DICK SUCKER.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Who do you think bought most of 50′s albums, dumb ass? EVERY rapper has to make people like their music from Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre to Talib Kweli and Mos Def, and that includes white people. Most rap records are bought in the suburbs, so check your facts and quit your racial bias, ignoramus.

    Oh yeah, Kanye’s album is much better than 50′s. I’m a 50 fan, but this album blew. He’s too formulaic. Kanye drastically changed from his first two records, and while Graduation wasn’t as good as his first two records (IMO), it was still real good with tight music and lyrics. 50 couldn’t deliver this time. To all the G Unit stans: Shut up and get over 50 losing the first week sales competition.

  • maximuspop

    KANYE DONT WRITE SHIT HIS GHOST WRITERS ARE RYHMEFEST AND LUPE LETS NOT FORGET THAT HE WON A GRAMMY FOR A SONG HE DIDNT WRITE AND YALL LET THAT SHIT SLIDE THATS FUCKED UP HE MAKES GOOD BEATS BUT THATS IT HE IS MORE R@B THAN RAP

  • REESE

    LOL…..DIDN’T I TELL YOU PEOPLE!

    AND ANOTHER THING……..WHY DOES IT MATTER IF SOME ONE BUYING THE ALBUM IS WHITE OR BLACK?!?!?!?!!?

    SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THAT TO ME!!!!

    IF YOU CAN THEN YOU ARE TRUELY RACIST!!!

  • Tha Sauce

    I guess G.O.O.D. conquered GGGGG-VIL (lmao)

  • RAZ

    RE to Reese:
    Well, it’s just that rap has been started by black people and we have been doing it for years, and 4 out the top 5 are black (can’t hate on Em).
    Bout Kanye he just doesn’t do nothing for me, he is not hip hop, he’s not a lyricist, and he’s not hard. I f with 50 cause he’s hard

  • 40 north

    “BREBRE” you are a jew hater huh? why are you a racist piece of shit? you should find a rope,a tree and hang yourself cuz the world dont need waste’s of flesh like you…..just die please thanx

    I wonder how kanye got so much stronger than 50 cent to become champion. Looks like kanye will be livin the good life from now on. So when I bump graduation u can’t tell me nothing. This sounds like bittersweet poetry to my ears hearing 50 lost. Kanyes name will be in flashing lights because graduation is another hit barry bonds. I’ll be at homecoming picking up on drunk and hot girls while kanye is playing in the backround. Kanye did this for the glory so good morning mr. Cent from him and his big brother and good night.
