Lil Wayne Stole Elvis’ Billboard Hot 100 Record!
It’s a sad day in legendary music. Yes, Lil Wayne is an acclaimed rapper BUT that is sooo not the point.
The rapper’s appearance on Game’s “Celebration,” which just hit the chart, gives Lil Wayne a staggering 109 Billboard hits, passing Presley’s 108 entries.
There are a couple of caveats, though.
While Presley was credited as the lead artist on all 108 of his Billboard hits, Lil Wayne has been the lead on just 42 of his — he appears as a “featured act” on the other 67 singles.
Meanwhile, several of Presley’s biggest hits came before Billboard debuted its signature Hot 100 list in 1958.
