50 Cent has cancelled his European tour after being outsold by rival Kanye West. After pledging to retire from the music industry if Kanye's album 'Graduation' out sold his own 'Curtis', 50 has seemingly taken the first step by axing all his dates. He has cancelled performances at tomorrow night's Vodafone Live Music Awards and MOBO Awards (19.09.07) after Kanye won the UK leg of their chart battle on Sunday (16.09.07). A spokesman for the rapper said: "50 Cent is very sad to confirm that due to a last-minute, unforeseen and unanticipated change in his schedule, he will have to postpone his European promotional trip scheduled to take place from September 18 to 25." 50, real name Curtis Jackson, said before both albums were released: "If Kanye West sells more records than me, I'll no longer write music. I'll work with my other artists, but I won't put out anymore solo albums." 50's MOBOs cancellation has left organisers struggling to replace him with another big name. If a last-minute replacement isn't found, Craig David's duet with Kano is expected to take centre stage at the ceremony taking place at London's O2 arena.
