“No, I’m not retiring,” Fitty told me, in the wake of his Kanye West feud. You will recall he pledged to bow out if his album “Curtis” didn’t outsell West’s “Graduation,” which opened nationally at No. 1.
“[My album] was No. 1 internationally the week it came out,” he said at Philippe. “It was the No. 1 European album!”
Indeed, while West trumped Fitty stateside, “Curtis” scored both the top album and single on the Billboard European Hot 100.
Says Fiddy: “It’s all about the numbers at the end of the day”.
