Kanye West Vs. 50 Cent: Rivalry?

Let the games begin.
Several wagers in TV appearances by 50 Cent calling Kanye West out. From a televised debate to 50 going so far as to proclaim that if West outsells him, he will no longer write music.
I mean really, both are totally different artists. Real talk, Kanye is definitely doing something wonderful, but it's not all THAT different. In addition, we should all come to the realization that both are mainstream artists, and are therefore sales driven. Now I would be of the notion that healthy competition is very existent within today's society without having to damage another person's career. But this has seriously gone too far.
I personally plan to buy both albums, cause I'm one who shows no bias between 50 nor Kanye. At the same time, the true decision is gonna come down to the consumer who goes out on 9/11 to purchase either one of these albums, and in the end it's all a matter of personal preference. Better opinion? DJ Muggs & Sick Jacken is coming out on 9/11 as well. Again, I'm buying all three. But to all those who choose to follow the hype, a word of advice from me. Don't make it more serious than it is. There are people dying in far worse situations for us to worry about a simple beef between two successful artists.
