Kanye West brings end to chart battle with 50 Cent

West changes the release date of '808's & Heartbreak'

Kanye West and 50 Cent won’t be fighting for the Number One spot in December – because West has brought forward the release date of his forthcoming album, ‘808’s & Heartbreak’’.

The album, which was originally set for release a week after 50 Cent’s forthcoming effort ‘Before I Self Destruct’ on December 16, will now be on sale in November.

Writing on the Kanye West blog the rapper wrote: “I changed my album to November something ’cause I finished the album and I felt like it. I want y’all to hear it as soon as possible.”
