Lil Wayne’s long awaited, highly anticipated mammoth of an album entitled, The Carter V, continues to not only break records, but set records, and reinstates Wayne’s reign in hip-hop. Wayne’s return to the top comes with all 22 songs from the album on the Billboard Hot 100. The only other artist to accomplish this feat, is Mr. Carter’s very own Young Money record label signee Drake with Scorpion. The New Orleans native rapper continued to smash all competition by having 4 songs in the top 10 and 2 songs in the top 5. In doing this, Wayne once again solidified his legacy and made history as the first artist to have two songs in the top 5. “Mona Lisa” is an epic story told with the help of Kendrick Lamar debuting at No. 2, while the song “Don’t Cry” with recently deceased rapper XXXtentacion came in at No.5. Meanwhile, “Uproar” a Swizz Beatz production took the No.7 spot and “Let It Fly” clocked in at No. 10. These latest Billboard entries brings Wayne’s total top tens to 24, surpassing Hov (with 21), and right behind Drizzy with 31. Weezy’s total Hot 100 entry count now stands at 160, making him No.3 for having the most Hot 100 entries.
LONG LIVE YOUNG MONEY
