Lil Wayne Tops Elvis’ Billboard Record


NEW YORK (September 27, 2012)--Lil Wayne has surpassed Elvis Presley as the male with the most entries on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

Lil Wayne now has 109 songs on that chart with Thursday's debut of Game's song "Celebration," in which he’s a guest alongside Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa.

Of his 109 charted songs, only 42 are led by Lil Wayne while 67 are songs in which he is the featured act.

Thursday was the rapper's 30th birthday.

Presley totaled 108 songs on the Hot 100 since it launched in 1958.

Presley's career kicked off before 1958 and several of his songs such as "Heartbreak Hotel" could not be included in his total number.

The "Glee" cast has the most Hot 100 entries with 204.
