Kanye West Launches Line Of Eyewear?
Unfortunately, rapper Kanye West isn’t going into eyewear design anytime soon (that we know of), but the rapper was wearing some very snazzy promotional glasses made of paper as he signed autographs whilst promoting his new album “Graduation” at BBC radio in London.
Meanwhile, the notoriously flashy gangsta rap star, 50 Cent, thinks his new album Curtis will outsell Kanye West’s upcoming disc, so much so that he’s betting his solo career on it. Fiddy (aka Curtis Jackson) stated on Friday that if Kanye’s album outsells his, he will stop releasing solo albums.
And now, country artist Kenny Chesney is getting in on the act. His new album Just Who I Am: Poets And Pirates is due to be released on the same day as those from Fiddy and Kayne. He suspects that he might sneak up on 50 Cent and Kanye West, grabbing the top slot on that week’s Billboard 200. Chesney says, “‘It’s funny how with every record that comes out, we’re aware of the urban [competition], and none of those acts acknowledge that I exist…until I have that No. 1 debut on the Top 200.” Chesney’s last studio album The Road And The Radio did, in fact, enter the charts at the top slot when it was released back in November 2005.
All three artists’ albums are due to hit stores on September 11.
