We all remember the “debate” that 50 was calling for. That idea was “stupid” accordin to Kanye, instead it’ll be a real showdown on Sept. 11 on the set of BET’s “106 & Park: Top 10 Live” when 50 Cent and Kanye West square off in what’s being billed the “lyrical Superbowl of the century.”
The two confident MCs will face-off on “106” with hosts Terrence and Rocsi on the day their albums drop.
Both will take to the stage to perform songs from each of their albums. Taking the heavyweight match theme to the max, ESPN host Stuart Scott will be on hand to deliver statistical breakdowns of both men.
“Just make sure Kanye West shows up,” 50 said.
Not one to back away from a challenge, Kanye said, “How could I not come to ‘106 & Park’ on the day my album comes out? I’m definitely coming.”
Stephen Hill, SVP of BET’s music programming and talent, thinks in the end, both men will come out on top.
“I don’t think it’s a battle, I think it’s a lot of fun. I think Kanye will tell you he moved his date to 50’s date to draw this type of attention, to create this marketing opportunity,” he said. “We’re gonna have fun on Sept. 11, the only place they are going to be together.”
