This week's hip-hop five chart from the Amoeba Hollywood store proves that the big names (Weezy, Kanye, & Jay-Z) are holding their own with both Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV and Jay-Z & Kanye West's Watch The Throne both still holding down top slots in not just the regular CD versions but also the Deluxe versions of each release.
Speaking of Lil Wayne, the artist who was recently incarcerated at Rikers for 8 months, does not seem to have lost any momentum at all in his ever rising career. The latest achievement for Weezy is being placed in the 2012 Guinness Book Of World Records for having the most US Hot 100 hits. Over the past decade the artist has had an astounding 60+ tracks that entered the Hot 100 chart. This will not be the rapper's first time in the Guinness Book Of World Records. He previously got inducted for having the most “likes” on Facebook in one 24 hour period. Also charting on the Top Five this week at the Los Angeles store is Blu & Exile's sleeper hit Below The Heavens.
