Curtis vs. Kanye: Our 50 cents

How have these two rap titans fared since their famous bet?

March 13, 2014 | 12:00 a.m. CST

The legendary sales bet waged by MCs Kanye West and 50 Cent was a watershed for hip-hop. In 2007, 50 Cent announced he could sell more albums than Kanye, and if he didn’t, he would retire from rap. Kanye won, but 50 Cent hasn’t put the mic down. After the releases of Graduation and Curtis, ’Ye has emphasized production and emotion and has ultimately triumphed over Fiddy’s gangster rap persona. Vox checks in on the two giants to get the lowdown since their infamous feud.
