Lil Wayne Breaks Record For Six No. 1s On Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop Chart

Lil Wayne Breaks Record For Six No 1s On Mainstream R&B Hip Hop Chart

According to Billboard, Lil Wayne broke another record last week by being the first music artist to have six No. 1s on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop Radio Airplay chart in one calender year. This is because of Weezy‘s “She Will” single featuring Drake moving from #3 to #1. The other 5 tracks that went #1 this year with Tune in are: “6 Foot, 7 Foot“, “How To Love“, “I’m On One“, “Look At Me Now” and “Motivation“. The previous record holder for this achievement was Usher with four No. 1s in 2004, so a congratulations to Tunechi is in order!

I am also aware that some of the videos from MTV that I have recently posted on LilWayneHQ can not be viewed by users who are not in the US. Well the homie Kuzz has very kindly ripped these videos from MTV and uploaded them to YouTube. This means that users worldwide can now watch them!

Audio: Bill Clinton Is Excited For Lil Wayne’s Prison Release

Former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, said he is excited for Lil Wayne‘s prison release tomorrow in an interview with Pittsburgh’s 96.1 Kiss Morning Freak Show. Here is what Clinton said:

“I’ll tell you what I think about that,” he said. “I know this is kind of a funny question for you two to ask me. My daughter introduced me to rap and hip-hop music after I said some things that she thought were not very smart. She said dad you need to listen, these people are smart. This guy’s smart and he’s got ability, and he’s got a new chance. And what I hope is that this is not just something to brand him as a cool guy but that it’ll never happen again to him. I think a lot of these people, they don’t get successful, just like any other area of life, by being really dumb, they’re really smart, but a lot of them had tough lives and they think it’s really cool to get in trouble every now and then or they don’t know how to stay out. What I hope will happen is that he has a good life now.”
