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!

Birdman Speaks On Giving Lil Wayne $50 Million, Why They Used To Kiss On The Lips & More

Birdman recently sat down with Big Bank, DJ Scream and Baby Jade for an interview on REVOLT’s “Big Facts” series.

During their conversation, Baby discussed everything from Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Future, Drake, Nicki Minaj, not getting enough respect in the music industry, the Hot Boys, Atlanta, past issues with Charlamagne Tha God, missing out on signing Kanye West because he already had Mannie Fresh, and much more.

The #1 Stunna explained that him and Weezy fixed their relationship and problems by going around to his house on New Year’s Eve and giving him $50 million, as well as also mentioning that this situation would be the only thing in his career he wishes he could take back and that it all started when he created the Rich Gang group.

Also in the convo, Birdman revealed why he used to kiss Tunechi on the lips, making a mistake when they were younger to not copyright “Bling Bling”, and why he only believes Tune can battle against himself in a VERZUZ. You can check out the full interview in the video below!
