Contest: Predict the sales of Graduation

    Well, we can’t have an album sales contest for 50 Cent and not have one for Kanye. We’re tempted to also have one for Kenny Chesney, but he’s not exactly Prefix’s demographic. Kanye has probably made the headlines more than any other rapper since his last album Late Registration came out, but will he outsell 50?
    Take a guess at where Kanye West’s latest effort Graduation will end up on the charts along with the number of albums he will sell (the latter will be the tie-breaker). Winner gets the $20 gift certificate to Amazon. [more:]
