Lil Wayne Breaks Elvis' Billboard Record-CONGRATS!!!

The tides in the music world are definitely changing.

Rap star Lil’ Wayne has beaten Elvis Presley‘s record by having the most songs ever on Billboard charts throughout his career. The historic move came with his guest appearance on Game’s newest single, “Celebration”. In an interesting nod, Wayne appeared on the song “Revolver” by Madonna, from her greatest hits album, Celebration in 2010.

“This is a true milestone in Lil Wayne’s career and the legacy of YMCMB (Young Money Cash Money Billionaires — yeah, that’s what it stands for)”, says fellow rapper Birdman, who helped Wayne get his start. “Surpassing Elvis Presley is a testament to Wayne’s creativity and innovation in music over the years.”

Uh… I wouldn’t go that far.

Seems like he has one more thing to celebrate today: the feat comes on Wayne’s 30th birthday.
