Late last week, 50 Cent took hold of his 140-character destiny, lighting up his two million follower strong Twitter after years of dormancy.
His first tweet? "I can't belive my grandmother's making me take out the garbage. I'm rich. F*** this! I'm going home."
For the next few hours, 50 was on fire, weighing in on Fat Joe, Soulja Boy, and even the failure of his last LP, Before I Self Destruct.
Of course, the currently undisputed hip-hop Twitterverse heavyweight is Kanye West, whose accelerated from zero 870,000 followers by the absurdity, profundity, hilarity and sheer volume of activity -- to say nothing of his G.O.O.D. Friday releases.
So how do the two stack up? Hit the jump to see...
