Cash Money Records Hit Another Big Milestone, 50 Cent Imitates Lil Wayne From His Deposition

Cash Money Records Birdman & Slim With Their 500 Million Songs Sold Plaque

Cash Money Records have just accomplished another great achievement in their 21 year history by selling over 500 million songs worldwide. Birdman spoke to AllHipHop earlier today about the labels new amazing milestone:

“There is no more dynamic and prolific a label than Cash Money Records and the YMCMB family – point blank. We’re proud of every one of our artists and their contribution to our legacy.”

What’s most humbling is the global reaction to our story. Slim and I built this label from the ground up and seeing our brand connect with people across borders, culture and language makes us appreciate every one of our fans worldwide. We can’t wait to deliver another 500 million bangers.”

“Success is something that Slim and I have always aimed for. It feels great to sell 500 million songs but fans should know, we aren’t going to stop now, and will continue our legacy.”

I wonder how many songs Lil Wayne sold out of the 500 million ❓

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!

Lil Wayne Tha Carter IV Goes Platinum Worldwide First Week x Has 12 Songs On Billboard Hot 100

Even though Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV album sold just under one million copies in the first week, the album did still go platinum worldwide by selling over 1.03 million! The 964,000 copies Billboard counted are just sales from the US. We already know C4 debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, but it has also topped the United World Chart too, which is another great accomplishment for Weezy. This album marks Wayne‘s second highest first week sales behind Tha Carter III that sold 1.05 million in 2008.

Tunechi just keeps on winning though, because now Billboard have reported that Tune has 12 songs simultaneously charting on the Billboard Hot 100! Only The Beatles have topped this achievement, having placed 14 songs on the Hot 100 in 1964.
