Why Lil Uzi Vert is Now Indisputably One of the Kings of Rap

Rapper Lil Uzi Vert has just joined a very exclusive club alongside two other legendary MCs, after absolutely dominating the latest Billboard Hot 100.

Lil Uzi now has an insane 22 songs on the chart, nearly a quarter of all the music on the chart, thanks to the release of his new album Eternal Atake’s deluxe edition, which came out only a week after the record’s original version was unveiled.

All 14 of his new tracks on the deluxe edition made the Hot 100, bringing his total count to 22.

In the 61 years Billboard has been tracking the Hot 100 only two other artists have had at least that many songs chart simultaneously.

Lil Wayne also had 22 entries at once in 2018, while Drake holds the record after notching 27 songs after he released his album Scorpion that same year.
