Lil Wayne Ties Elvis Presley’s Billboard Hot 100 Record
Not only is Lil Wayne the king of rap, he’s also a king on the Billboard charts, as well. The rapper has tied with Elvis Presley for the most appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his appearance on Juicy J’s strip club anthem ‘Bandz a Make Her Dance.’
The Young Money honcho and the King of rock ‘n’ roll have both entered the tally 108 times among the male artists. The duo trails only behind the ‘Glee‘ cast, who have 204 appearances to their credit.
The Young Money honcho joins a distinguished list of male artists who have racked up double digits on the Hot 100 chart. Among them are James Brown (91 entries), Ray Charles (74 entries) and Elton John (67 entries). While Presley’s 108 entries on the chart are leads only, Wayne’s numbers consists of 42 leads and 66 featured songs.
In the meantime, Weezy’s newest lead-only single, ‘No Worries (Featuring Detail), climbed 38 notches from No. 96 to No. 58 on the chart this week. Lil Wayne’s next album ‘I Am Not a Human Being 2′ is expected to hit stores before the year’s end.
