50 Cent vanquishes Kanye in European charts

Surprise away win for the defeated rapper

50 Cent has turned the tables on Kanye West by going straight in at Number One on the European charts with his third album ‘Curtis’.

To add insult to injury, West, who beat 50 Cent in the UK and US charts, lies at only Number Three with his album ‘Graduation’, behind European star Manu Chao’s ‘La Radiolina’.

As previously reported, despite claiming he’d retire if beaten by West in the charts, 50 Cent has since scheduled a UK tour for November, calling at the following venues:

Aberdeen Arena (November 7)

Glasgow SECC (8)

Birmingham NEC (9)

London O2 Arena (10)

Bournemouth BIC (11)

Cardiff CIA (12)

Manchester MEN (14)

Nottingham Arena (16)
