Kanye vs. 50 Cent vs. Kenny G?

Seriously!

Kanye and 50 Cent recently went head-to-head, both releasing new albums with a big media splash in September. With about a million albums sold so far, Kanye seems to have won the crown as king of hip hop. But wait, there may be another dark horse contender… Kenny G!

Kanye vs. 50 Cent vs. Kenny G

According to our database, in the last month Kenny G’s Silhouette track was the 4th most popular converted ringtone on our site, behind Kanye West & Britney Spears, but before 50 Cent, who came in at number 11. Seems like our users have some interesting taste!

Our new Make My Ringone feature has quickly become one of the most popular items on the site. Since its launch last month, thousands of people have used it to personalize their phones with some pretty cool stuff (minus the Kenny G track, sorry). Check out what is ringing on your peers’ phones…
