Lil Wayne Becomes First Artist To Debut Two Songs In The Top 5 Of The Hot 100

The Young Money boss also moves into a tie with Drake for a chart record.

(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar fell one slot short of opening at #1 on the Hot 100 chart. However, their "Mona Lisa" collaboration debuted at #2, and Wayne's "Don't Cry" featuring XXXTentacion landed at #5.

That makes the New Orleans-bred emcee the first artist in history to have two songs premiere in the Top 5 on the Hot 100 at the same time. Wayne also saw "Uproar" start at #7 and "Let It Fly" featuring Travis Scott open at #10.

Weezy passed Jay-Z for second place on the all-time list of rappers with the most Top 10 entries (24). Plus, he tied his Young Money apprentice Drake with 22 songs from Tha Carter V appearing on the Hot 100 chart simultaneously.

Maroon 5 and Cardi B's "Girls Like You" remained at #1 for the third week. "Lucid Dreams" by Juice WRLD and "Better Now" by Post Malone each dropped one spot to #3 and #4 respectively.

Lil Wayne is a good rapper I would say right now like a good freestyle storyteller. I see rap today it's not about the content of the music. Tupac and Biggie made GREAT rap music. It's all about sounding like you mumbling now???????

They think this is Great music??? We had Outkast who had culture content and created a whole new world for Atlanta music. Now people think Kendrick Lamar rhymes are spectacular or something?

I mean this was just a good song they put out but not great for a top 100????????????
