Will 50 Cent Quit Music?

Imagine a world without Fiddy? It may be a possibility.
Fueled by sudden European tour cancellation, there is speculation throughout the music industry that 50 Cent may in fact quit from recording music and lapse into a full-on retirement. The rapper claimed quite publicly that he would quit making music if Kanye West's Graduation beat his release Curtis, titled in homage of his real name Curtis Jackson, on the charts. Both albums were released on September 11.
And now the results are in. West is #1 in UK, and projections are still saying he'll be in the top spot in the U.S. charts, which may force Fiddy to put his $.50 where his mouth is. Jackson's representation is saying that the cancellations are a result of "unforeseen circumstances." We think that's another term for "sour grapes."
