See, the problem here is that 50 promoted Kanye's album no less effectively than he did his own. And I suspect schadenfreude comes into play as well- for the price of a CD, would you rather buy 50's album, or buy Kanye's album AND do your part to see a celebrity eat his words?
Also 50's album just sucked ass. In 3 months and 3 (4?) singles it failed to spawn one hit. It was also leaked to the internet early. Adding to all of this what he said about Kanye, it was the perfect storm (for his failure, that is).
Ditto on the Barry Bonds. That has to be the worst sh*t Kanye has ever put out. Ever. They couldn't possibly have been sitting around the studio like "yo, that beat is fire right there, kid. Put that on the album!"My fav's are 1. Good Morning, 3. Stronger, 9. Flashing Lights and 13. Big BrotherThe rest are cool. Barry Bonds is garbage.
