Lil Wayne Breaks Elvis's Record For Hot 100 Hits

Lil Wayne is breaking records at least at billboard. He recently broke Elvis Presley’s record for the most Billboard Hot 100 hits. The rapper breaks the record with 109 Hot 100 Billboard hits including his many collaborations. According to Billboard only the cast of “Glee” have more Hot 100 hits with 204.

Wayne has bested Elvis’s 45 years and two months in just 13 years. Presley held the record with 108 Hot 100 hits.

While making approximately two-thirds of his Hot 100 visits in featured roles, Lil Wayne has still enjoyed laudable Hot 100 accolades.
While Billboard swings with both hand to protect the Presley’s accomplishments, this information forces one to wonder what’s next for the implausible rock star.

NEW YORK -- Things are perfectly harmonious onAmerican Idol's new judges' panel.
At least, that was the word on Monday at a news conference featuring returning veteran Randy Jackson and newcomers Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. It was the group's second day of working together; the audition road show next moves to Chicago.
"How can you feud in two days? A feud takes a little longer. It's fun. It's music. It's laughter," said Carey.
The next season of the show premieres in January and enters a landscape cluttered with star-studded talent competitions, most notably Fox's X Factor, with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato front and center, and the A-list mentors and judges on NBC's The Voice.

But They Forgot About Dre: Dr. Dre Tops Forbes List

Dr. Dre

The new Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings 2012 top 20 list has been revealed, with Beats headphone maker Dr. Dre topping the list. He's joined by several other hip hop moguls and rapper entrepreneurs including Diddy, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne at the top of the list. So how did Dre earn the top spot this year, and will he continue to hold it for 2013?

According to Forbes.com, it's those Beats by Dre headphones which have really boosted Dre's income to that next level. Not only is he a massively successful producer and part-time rapper these days, but also has attached his "Beats" brand to multiple products including laptops and headphones. The idea was originally brought to him by Jimmy Iovine, and has been a rousing success to the tune of $110 million in pretax earnings.

Chris Lightly

 

Chris Lighty, a hip-hop mogul who helped the likes of Sean "Diddy" Combs, 50 Cent and Mariah Carey attain not only hit records, but also lucrative careers outside music, was found dead in his New York City apartment Thursday in an apparent suicide. He was 44.

He was found at his home in the Bronx with a gunshot to the head and was pronounced dead there, police said. No note was recovered, but a 9 mm handgun was found and there was no sign of forced entry, said Paul Browne, New York police spokesman. The shooting appears to be self-inflicted, authorities said.
