From his Cash Money Records signing to the all-time Elvis Presley chart record he beat last year, we’re celebrating the release of Lil Wayne’s tenth studio album, “I Am Not A Human Being II,” with a look at the rapper’s top 10 biggest career moments: http://blbrd.co/14rdJUE
After Diddy (then Puff Daddy) and Faith Evans’ ode to slain rapper the Notorious B.I.G., “I’ll Be Missing You,” led the Billboard Hot 100 for 11 weeks, Biggie himself took over atop the list posthumously. His “Mo Money Mo Problems,” featuring Diddy and Mase, began a two-week reign.
“Lollipop” remains Lil Wayne’s longest-leading No. 1 as a lead act on Billboard’s Rap Songs chart. Four years ago today, the song kept on licking the competition, reigning for its 14th and final frame.
Then-monikered Puff Daddy’s tribute to slain rap star the Notorious B.I.G., “I’ll Be Missing You,” began an 11-week rule on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was made even more poignant by Biggie’s widow, Faith Evans, singing its chorus. Vocal act 112 added harmonies to the reworking of the Police’s 1983 No. 1, “Every Breath You Take.”
