Kanye vs 50 Cent: Kanye Wins

Its official, according to Nielsen SoundScan, Graduation came in at #1 with 957K copies while Curtis debuted at #2 with 691K copies, while Kenny Chesney debuted at #3 with a paltry 387K copies. The last highest debut was Fiddy's own Massacre which sold 1.1 Million. Personally, I'm curious as to how the two will compare over the next few weeks. Which will drop faster? Overall, hip hop wins as do the big shots at the labels. Plus fresh off the presses are two leaked tracks from 50 and friends.
As much as I was pulling for both albums, I wish 50 would take more chances like he did with Smile. He has it in him but thinks he has to stay painted into the corner, thinking that will sell him the most albums. One more album, Fif. Take some chances, you have nothing to lose.
