Lil Wayne Surpasses Elvis Presley For Most Billboard Entries
Rap king Lil Wayne just continues to add history-making accolades to his ever-growing rap legacy.
In his latest feat, Weezy now holds the record as the the top male artist, in any genre, with the most entries on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart—surpassing past record-holder Elvis Presley.
The AP reports that Wayne has 109 song entries after today’s debut of Game’s “Celebration,” also featuring Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa.
For all you technical people out there, Presley’s career kicked off before The Hot 100 charts were established in 1958, so several of his songs (like 1956’s “Heartbreak Hotel”) couldn’t be included in his tally of hits. Another interesting fact is, only 42 of Weezy’s entries are actually led by him. The other 67 songs charted as features for other artists.
It looks like jumping on everyone’s songs actually paid off for Weezy. Congratulations boss!
