Machine Gun Kelly Says Lil Wayne Is One Of The Greatest Rock Stars Of This Generation [Video]

Machine Gun Kelly Says Lil Wayne Is One Of The Greatest Rock Stars Of This Generation

For Billboard magazine’s March 2022 issue, Machine Gun Kelly graced the front cover and was their main feature for the story to promote his new album, Mainstream Sellout.

In their cover story, the rapper/singer/actor talked about how some of the greatest rock stars of this generation are now actually rappers and the example he used was Lil Wayne.

“That motherf*cker is everything I loved about the rock stars from back then. That’s why it was so cool to watch Wayne. We’re like: ‘who is this martian?'”

MGK then proceeded to play Tune‘s “Ay!” verse and revealed how Weezy went in the booth after a 7AM skateboarding session to lay the verse down in one take. Check it out in the video below from the 5:45 mark!

Lil Wayne Has Now Appeared On Billboard’s “Hot 100” Chart For 18 Consecutive Years

Lil Wayne Has Now Appeared On Billboard Hot 100 Chart For 18 Consecutive Years

Last year, I reported about Lil Wayne charting the Billboard “Hot 100” chart for 17 consecutive years, and now his longevity and accomplishment has reached even greater.

With The Weeknd‘s “I Heard You’re Married” featuring Wayne debuting at No. 62 on the “Hot 100” this month, Weezy earns his first entry of 2022 – meaning he has now appeared on the chart for 18 consecutive years.

It’s a shame Tunechi missed out on entering the Billboard chart in 2003 as that would mean Tune will have charted 23 years in a row. Kanye West is the only rapper who has appeared on the “Hot 100” more than Mr. Carter with one extra year!

Lil Wayne Re-Release Of Sorry 4 The Wait Debuts at No 60 On Top 200 Chart

The official re-release of Lil Wayne‘s Sorry 4 The Wait project has debuted at No. 60 on Billboard’s “Top 200” album chart.

If you have been living under a rock, Weezy re-released his S4TW mixtape on January 14th with four brand new songs after originally dropping it on July 13th, 2011.

Tune‘s next plans with this project are to premiere a music video for “Cameras” featuring his Young Money artist Allan Cubas! Are you still bumping Sorry 4 The Wait on streaming platforms?

Lil Wayne Has Now Appeared On The Billboard Hot 100 Chart For 17 Consecutive Years

DJ Khaled’s “Thankful” song featuring Lil Wayne and Jeremih has just made the Billboard “Hot 100” chart by entering in at the #100 spot.

This marks Tunechi‘s first entry on the chart in 2021, as well as also gives Tune an amazing new achievement, which is that he has now appeared on the “Hot 100” for 17 consecutive years since 2004.

Wayne has actually charted 21 of the last 22 years of his music career, but unfortunately, he missed out on the “Hot 100” chart in the year of 2003.

The only other rapper who has had a longer run than Weezy on this chart is Kanye West, who has entered the “Hot 100” for the last 18 years since 2003!
