Kanye West, 50 Cent albums to go head-to-head again

This time their new releases come out just a week apart

Kanye West and 50 Cent are set to repeat their album showdown of 2007, but this time will release their new records one week apart.

The pair went head-to-head last year with the release of West‘s ‘Graduation’ and 50‘s ‘Curtis’, with Kanye ultimately securing the top spot in the first week of release.

Now both artists will release albums in December, with 50‘s dropping on December 9 and West‘s on December 16.

Last year’s chart battle was highly publicised, with 50 vowing to quit music if he did not sell more records in the first week of release than Kanye West.
