Birdman

Lil Wayne Is In

Elvis' League

Lil Wayne is in the same league as ELVIS PRESLEY -- so says the man who co-founded Young Money Cash Money Billionaires with the rapper.

In case you didn't know, Lil Wayne surpassed the King of Rock and Roll on Billboard's Hot 100 chart today -- a record that's stood uncontested since 1958.

Now Bryan "Birdman" Williams tells TMZ, "This is a true milestone in Lil Wayne's career and the legacy of YMCMB. Surpassing Elvis Presley is a testament to Wayne's creativity and innovation in music over the years."

Elvis originally set the record with 108 songs on the list -- including the legendary "Surrender," "Burning Love," "Stuck on You," and "A Big Hunk o' Love." He shaped modern music.

But with Lil Wayne’s appearance as a featured artist on the Game’s new song “Celebration” ... Weezy now has 109 ... on his 30th birthday no less.

It just goes to show how stupid people are today. The guy has little talent. What he does have is a following from a bunch of tards that know nothing about real music. Now all you have to do is talk about killing cops or how big your dick is to sell some records. Pathetic.

It is so much easier now days for anyone to be up in those ranks because of several reasons. One, with the internet and new ways of putting music out, you can sell millions of cd's even if the music is crap. Two, there are millions more people today than when Elvis was alive. Three, the rehashed music of today is what the kids think is new and inovative has already been done. Many more reasons, but what is happening with him is what poster #2 ANDY said. Simply stepping in and saying yo and uh on someone elses music put him in the Elvis category. Elvis did his own thing and made it through HIS music and movies and touring and his stints in Vegas. Not to mention his carisma and good looks. Say what you want, but it is so much easier to put out crap today than it was back then. Fifty years ago, Lil Wayne would have been laughed off the stage.

This is a joke, right???? He's not even on the same PLANET as Elvis Presley. Elvis could actually SING. All Lil Wayne does is talk to music. Talk about ego, geesh louise.

Both losers in my book. Druggies. Also, didn't Elvis date minors when he was an adult? Hmmm.... Neither are role models.

Comparing Elvis Presley to a loud-mouthed, degenerate like Lil' Wayne is a complete insult to The King.
