I wasn't referring to commercial success, though if I did mis-say that, it's my mistake. I meant that while I find a few of Kanye or 50 Cent's songs appealing, I think that the rap of the 80's and 90's is more original and captivating. I don't see much in the rap that plays on the hip-hop or mainstream/pop radio.

So what did you mean by commercial? Their ad campaign?

Personally, I feel that 50 cent is a little bit one-dimensional. I think his success is due to the fact that his fan-base is one-dimensional too.

I don't really care for either of them, but Kanye is certainly better in terms of...everything except record sales.

I do enjoy Kanye much more than 50 Cent. His latest album was odd at first but then it grew on me.

I've never been a big fan of 50 Cent. Like someone has said he's a bit one-dimensional. Plus the fact that he blatantly lies to make himself look cooler.

The King of New York lives in Connecticut, clearly this makes sense. <_<

Kayne West, 50 cent had some good stuff, but after listening to it for a while it gets...old. While Kanye West you could listen over and over and it's still good. Plus Kanye's newer songs are better than 50's.

Stronger is one of my favorites.

50 cent is a teen idol, kanye is a recording artist. It depends on what you want. If you want to live the gangsta dream, listen to 50 and pretend to know what hes talking about. Kanye is the full package musically, but hes a bit of an *******.

I prefer Kanye because his lyrics are less violent than 50 Cent’s.
