NEWS: 50 Cent Loses, Blames Def Jam

50 Cent sold roughly 600,000 to Kanye West's 800,000 and claims it's mostly because Def Jam cheated.

"He's never had a fraction of the sales 50 Cent has," the embattled rapper told the mag.

"They could have only one scan and have it count four times. West's entire career hasn't sold half what I sold on my first album."

I'm not saying I agree with 50 Cent, but then the article says something laughably incorrect.

Billboard's chart maven Geoff Mayfield thinks there's little chance West's company could have manipulated sales: "The people who built SoundScan put safeguards in place to track sales that don't look kosher."

That's like letting a member of the Mob tell you there is no crime around while he steals your wallet.
