50 Cents Beefed-Up Massacre Cant Top Kanyes Latest

Late Registration spends second week at #1; Rolling Stones debut at #3. 50 Cent has been trying to steal some of Kanye West‘s thunder in recent days.

First, the G-Unit captain credited himself with paving the way for the Louis Vuitton Don’s rise, suggesting in an MTV News interview that The College Dropout benefited from timing. Then, 50 released a beefed-up, redesigned version of his chartbusting LP The Massacre featuring Mobb Deep on an “Outta Control” remix and a bonus DVD with videos for each of the album’s tracks as well as trailers for his upcoming film, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” and video game, “Bulletproof.”

Try as he might, 50’s lunge for Kanye’s Billboard throne failed to get the job done. West’s Late Registration spends a second straight week on top with more than 283,000 scans, pushing the disc over the 1 million mark despite a 67 percent sales drop. 50 Cent scored sales of close to 154,000 with the reissue — quite a feat when you consider that the album has been available for over six months and has already sold over 4 million copies.
