Today is the day that the final first week for the Kanye vs 50 album sales as it was the biggest in hip-hop history. The marketing that went behind these two guys was displayed as David vs. Goliath and the battle generated so much on the respective label, everyone was quite speechless.
Soundscan had reported (and declared) that Kanye won the battle, earning and selling near a million copies with 957k copies in its first week. It goes without saying but this was great for the music business and what people didn’t realize that both artist might have been on separate labels but their parent company, Universal, owns both Def Jam and Interscope.
If you remember this battle fell free to SHARE with others.
