I just read an article on Hiphopdx(that came from Yo Raps) that says Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3 and 50 Cent’s Before I Self-Destruct are both dropping on the eighth anniversary of September 11th. For the second time, 50 has purposely released his album on the same day as another hip hop heavy weight. Last time, 50 and Kanye went head to head and Kanye not only smashed him in record sales, he put out a better album. This time around, 50 is going against, arguably the GOAT, Jay-Z. If this was 2001, I would say 50 had no chance but in light of Jay-Z turning from GOAT to OOAT, I think 50 is gonna MERK Jay and put out a better album. I think Jay will sell more copies thatn 50 just because Jay will have Kanye, Drake AND Lil Wayne on his album because he can’t hold his own any longer. Regardless, I think this will officially be Jay’s last attempt to keep his legacy alive and a DECENT moment in hip hop. I like how 50 continues to go up against the biggest names in hip hop. He seems to be one of the last with that competitive spirit. I might even drop Love Potion that day and take em BOTH down. Stay tuned for all the press and publicity the “showdown” will receive. Big ups to 50 for challenging the OOAT when everyone else is just scurrrred. The GAME too. Good shit GAME. Peep the article.
