This petition is to help ensure that Kanye West outsells 50 Cent in the first week of release, when both issue a new album on Sept. 11th, 2007. 50 Cent has said publicly that he will stop releasing solo albums if Kanye should top him in first week sales. No more stupid 50 Cent songs Hooray! It\'s time for 50 Cent to put up or shut up. 50 has called Kanye a \"worker bee,\" maintaining that he (50 Cent) is a \"boss.\" The New York-based rapper continued by saying, \"Look at how you\'re talking to me, like Kanye West is my equal right now. That\'s like me putting myself against Michael Jackson\'s [album-release] date and then acting like, \'Woah, it\'s a battle between 50 Cent and Michael Jackson!\', when Thriller sold 30 million records and 50 Cent\'s biggest album sold 12 [million], you feel what I\'m saying\" No. Not really. 50 emphasized the importance of album sales, saying that West outselling him would mean that \"he did a better job than me on his album.\" So this is where you come in. Better job or not, Kanye West MUST respond to 50\'s ignorant claims by staking a claim of his own; the top spot on the Billboard Chart! To help support Kanye West, Chicago and to do right by hip-hop, we\'re asking for your pledge to purchase Kanye\'s new album \"Graduation,\" within the first 7 days of its\' release. We\'ve also been alerted to the fact that 50 Cent has tried to retract his promise. He must\'ve seen the pre-order numbers. Backing out of that guarantee Ain\'t gonna happen. Let\'s not let him take that back. Seriously, take some solace in knowing that our passion for clever, well-written and forward-thinking music by an enthusiastic, talented and young entertainer will force 50 to take his ball and go home. As Curtis Jackson. Keep the change. Support Kanye West!
