Kanye West - Graduation

Graduation is Kanye's tightest, slickest album to date. It may not be as hook-heavy as Late Registration, but that only means his tracks take a little longer to get to know and love. It's worth investing the effort - they improve with every listen. Kanye might like to throw tantrums and say shocking things (hello VMAs), but as long as he keeps churning out tunes like this, all is forgiven.

Kanye West - Graduation Fun Facts
  • All of Kanye's albums have an education theme - The College Dropout, Late Registration and now Graduation.
  • Graduation sold 400,000 albums the first day it hit shelves. As of September 14, 2007 Graduation sold more than 781,000 copies in the US.
  • Kanye West is still managed to his mom, Dr. Donda West.

    50 Cent - Curtis

    After all the posturing and trash talking, it's hard to review Curtis without drawing comparisons to Graduation. While Kanye is always changing up his style, 50 Cent's new album is full of the same old 50 Cent we know from Get Rich or Die Tryin' and The Massacre. The real standout moments on this album come from 50's guests (Justin Timberlake, Mary J. Blige, Akon etc.) rather than his own performances.

    50 Cent - Curtis Fun Facts

  • The album got its name from 50's real name - Curtis James Jackson III.
  • Both Curtis and Graduation credit Timbaland as a producer.
  • As of September 14, 2007, Curtis had sold about 603,000 copies in the US (looks like 50 better get a comfy chair for retirement).
