Last week, we posted that Lil Wayne‘s new single ,”Right Above It“, featuring Drake reached #1 on iTunes. This week, we’re glad to say that “Right Above It” has debuted at #6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, not to mention it is #1 on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart. This adds to the list of Weezy songs to reach the top 10, and from the looks of it this song will reach #1 in no time. After the jump you can view a video of T.I. saying that Tunechi is the only person, other than him, that could claim the title of “King of the South“. Be sure to leave your thoughts on Wayne‘s achievement and the video in the comments box.
“It doesn’t bother me at all,” Tip said about his fellow Southern contenders. “Another point I often make is the success of another person, the rise or fall of another individual has no bearing on my title. No matter how much a person does from this day forward, it doesn’t take away from the things I’ve done to this day. I’m gonna have to stop for a long time to let you start for a long time in order for you to catch up, no matter how much you do, and not taking away from anybody, not saying nothing bad about nobody — you gonna have to do what you’re doing right now times two, times three, seven times over in order to be where I am right now…As far as from a standpoint of success, the only person who is in a position to make a claim like that sort would be Lil Wayne, as far as success, from a numbers standpoint. As far as longevity and success, that’s the only person I feel like can say that.”
