A primer on the 50-cent, Kanye West album releases

Posted: September 12, 2007 in Music, Not-so-serious

Here’s a very interesting and funny article on the 50-cent – Kanye West album releases set on September 11, 2007. The two have been on some kind of rivalry most likely intended to boost album sales. 50 cent has threatened to retire from making solo albums if West outsells him. The article uses an “election primer format” which would guide voters or in this case record-buyers, in which to choose. What is also interesting are the political angles attributed to both hip-hop artists. West is remembered for his remarks in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”. This comment was opposed by 50 cent in subsequent interviews.
