Drake Breaks Rap Number Ones Record

2014 ESPYS - Show

CRWN Me.

After Drake took the crown in 2012, Usher regained it with 13 #1 Rap/R&B singles. But with “Believe Me” going the distance this week, Drizzy’s back on top with 14. Lil Wayne falls to third with 10. Congrats—again.

Previously: 

Back in October, Drake tied Diddy with the most #1 singles on the Billboard Rap Songs chart. Now with “Make Me Proud” landing at #1 last week, Mr. Graham has surpassed Puff with 11 #1s.

    the fact diddy held the record prior to drake just proves how irrelevant this is. you NEVER heard ppl using diddy holding this record as some proof he’s a great rapper. popularity == quality.

  • http://www.twitter.com/eastpointvet dagooch

    get some bill russell rings with albums and we got something to talk about. the reason its easier for a newer artist to get it now is because they changed the criteria for getting songs charted. back in the day it was mostly radio play. now itunes singles factored into the charting and people buy singles more than albums now so if you got a hot single and people buy it it doesnt necessarily have to be a radio hit these days. not saying its nothing at all but it was harder for diddy to get most of them number 1 singles due to the way they used to chart singles

    dagooch, the fuck u talmbout?

    All of them singles are or have been ALL over radio. Don’t act like it’s just itunes sales.

  • TheTruthIs…

    That’s pretty sweet ain’t it Common? What Common should have done was have some control over his woman and his mouth…Made a track with Drake and maybe one day he could have a couple #1s before his career is over…Nope…Common’s motto should have been shut the fuck up…

Nah im not crazy, i dont think to highly of drake maybe u just dont think highly enough but guess wat drake dont care hes makin million just from being his own amazing talented self, how cool is that?! Thats wat i call livin the life! YOLO<33

  • What y’all sayin

    Drake is on a winning streak right now

  • CecilRhodez

    All these dudes saying fuck Drake, yall are far more stupid than ignorant at this point, annoying seeing gumpy ass niggas misspelling words out of anger/foolishness on every site around. I’m no dick rider and I support beef between rappers but yall gotta give it up to him for bring where hes at. So congrats ole thick brow ass, he’s working and I’m not a fan of Lux Rap, I think its senseless but to see the dude from Room From Improvement blow up, man thats something.

  • Jaymalls

    Congrats Drake…. BUT it’s way easier 2 get a #1 single now-a-days!!! It’s a single-driven industry word 2 FloRida an Pitbull! And we have artist artist like Soulja Boy who he helped change how record labels sign artist and put out music!!!

    It was way harder 2 get a #1 back in the day compared to now… Still congrats my young sweet & low, Canadian, body catching nigga!!!!

  • sumit

    i remember when 50 had this record…salute to drake for taking it

  • Jim

    LOL @ ppl trying to clown Common because Drake sold a bunch of crappy pop songs. I’ll take substance over crappy pop songs like “Make Me Proud” any damn day.

    PDiddy was the last person to hold that record so that should really tell you something. Both SUCK and have done nothing for hip hop.

    im not a fan of drake but i gotta give it to him. He stays true doesnt talk about dealing drugs or whatnot. The dude makes songs for the radio and does it well give him props. I mean the shit he puts out is way better then the shit we heard on the radio a couple years back when hiphop was in its slumps .. talkin o5 n o6

    Let me get out of this post before Drake male groupies start attacking.

  • Guess What

    His prize from Baby & Wayne. Anal pounding. Haha Aubrey is still a gay soft pop rapper.

    @Anon DCPL is that you ZoomZoomDad hating? i mean working your 9 to 5 job…. lol

  • Gary

    Not trying to hate, but this probably has more to do with the internetz increasing access to music. Back in the day you basically couldn’t hear non-singles unless you bought the album. Nowadays the public instantly figures out what is the jam. Everytime I check out an album, I go to itunes to see what non-single is blowing up.

    Shit, back in the 90’s and 80’s you’d have a song stay #1 on the charts for MONTHS. Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” was basically the number one song on the charts for the entire Clinton administration.

    Eleven #1’s is still an amazing accomplishment though.

    8 of 11 are big time features, best i ever had was #1 basically cause the remix, but the spin count goes to the original, wayne takes the credit on 3 ,ross 2, nicki 2,

    5 0f them are his album track but the better ones are the ones with features, headlines was wack til t.i. & jeezy killed it.

    Uhhhh so are we going to act like all those songs are his? Only 6 songs are his. Open your eyes. That’s just like wayne for being on so many charted songs…. FEATURES

    • Los

      Those songs would not went number 1 if drake was not involved stop hating and give credit where it’s due

    So all those songs are Drake’s? Nope only 6

  • j/y h/h

    I don’t begrudge Drake his success, and I’m not complaining about the type of music he makes. But these days in terms of the music industry and peoples attention spans, it’s no surprise that he can have so many number 1’s.
    I do have a problem with him when now all of sudden he’s trying to come off like he’s some kind of straight up G. Dude ain’t built like that. It’s easy to talk tough when you can hire goons. He always talking about how his crew will do something, or his crew will “catch a body.” He needs to stay in his lane and stop pretending.
    Also, I find it interesting that people try to clown Common for playing a slave on TV. It’s not like he’s playing a gay dude or something. He’s playing something that is a part of all black people’s heritage. And, it’s not like he’s on there going “yes massah, I be good slave, please don’t whip me massah.” Dude is militant, busting guns and fighting the system. Kind of in line with his rhymes.

  • j/y h/h

    On another note, in that picture Diddy looks like he’s trying to sweet talk Drake into letting him get the draws. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  • dmc

    haha only 2 of those songs don’t have features

  • Awesome

    5 of them aren’t his songs and some of the aren’t even rap. Pop/ R&B at best

  • screppin864

    Damn diddy held that record wtf and not drake got it shocking but big ups drizzy just shows how much of a popularity contest it is and good music not saying drake makes bad music but he shouldn’t hold that record

  • yogottinotboi

    Congrats to him but half these songs he’s featured on and if that’s the case he’s not #1 just saying

  • MHarstad

    Its a popularity contest and right now the bitches love this guy..he’s still sweet..Common >>>>Hoe Ass Nigga

  • Cmon Son

    its simple only teenage girls call and request music on radio and this is what they like, soft bubble gum shit. nobody who listens to rap listens to drake except canadians, and well look at their last big artist from Canada, I got to think all the way back to Snow Informer – or Jim Carrey parody on in living color ended his career, i dont think we will be having to deal with this guy much longer. He will get tired of being number to Lil wayne try to separate himself from them then re-invent his image and fail miserably . 2 more years or less and we can forget this dude just like T-pain and any other guy who is collab hook singing slut.

    I will take Quality over Quantity in every scenario including this one, 8 of 11 tracks have features from big time artists, Em,Wayne, Jay,Ross,Timbo, if you cant make hits with these guys you need to quit

  • A LIL HIP HOP PLZ

    THIS IS WHAT HIP HOP HAS COME TO SAD. HES A GOOD WRITER BUT FAR FROM THE BEST…HES NOT A SINGER NOR MC HES A POP ARTIST..HERE FOR ENTERTAINMENT..MAKING HITS THIS GENERATION IS STRIP CLUB BEAT CATCHY HOOK BIG NAME COSIGNS EQUAL TODAYS MUSIC SUCCESS.

  • A LIL HIP HOP PLZ

    Drakes sound and the cash money Rick Ross mmg groups connect to the younger generation which says a lot when most of the younger generation ditch school are drug attics and chase ass and money for peer popularity.

    • It’s Just Music

      coming from the dumb fuck who can’t spell addicts!

  • A LIL HIP HOP PLZ

    Music of substance and mind elevation is done. Dumb down music is fine to maintain a balance but we’re swamped with it….let’s pray J Cole and Kendrick and Lupe can keep the authenticity of the hip hop culture alive to save the few who understand.

    • It’s Just Music

      Drake raps/sings and writes what his life is about. That is real and hip hop is about being real.
      Kendrick raps and writes about his life. His life is obviously different than Drake’s. He’s real too and what hip hop is about.

      Lupe’s music has too much substance where its not even relatable.
      People don’t want substance, they want a song that they can relate to or get them through life.

      Whether they are having problems with a woman ‘Marvin’s Room’ ing
      lOr feeling like they are trapped in a chaotic life style listening to ‘Sing About Me’.

      Not everyone has the same problems or lifestyle or wants to hear the hardships of life every-time they play a hip hop song you know.

  • It’s Just Music

    How did rap let a Canadian take over the Rap Game?
    Can’t be mad at Drake dumb fucks!
    While 50 was beefing with everybody
    TI making reality shows
    Common worrying about Serena
    Camron wearing suspect capes
    and the whole rap game doing dumb shit

    Drake was the only one making music lmao
    Stop being bitter haters. Your favorite rapper could have done this but they were being lazy!

    too busy worrying about parties and fashion, that’s why your favorite rapper is missing in action!

    call me a stan or whatever but Drake is the best period. whether you want to bring up album sells, records, tours, or money, the rap game let Drake take it all without even trying! lmao

    • Truestory

      did you see the names you just mentioned those rappers already accomplished what they needed to do.. rap year wise, listen [year wise] drake is a junior going into senior year thats why there busy on other ventures making them more money then the rap game your commenting as a fan not understanding

      • It’s Just Music

        My post comes from the stand point of music only.
        The rap game has long been about so much pointless shit other than music.
        It has always been about beef, money, cars, fashion, hoes and not about music.
        Then a guy like Drake comes along and focuses strictly on music, completely takes over the rap game, and then fans get mad saying how he isn’t hip hop lol

        It is scary how some people are still living in the MC era still preaching the 4 elements (emcee, dj, b boy, & graffiti) of hip hop.

        That shit was cool in that time period but time to move on guys sheesh. And if you miss it why go on rapradar instead of listening to all those decade old albums?

    • drakeisdope

      TRUEE!!! yall gotta peep the ATL banger http://www.soundcloud.com/love_at_first_sound/madeofgold SOUNDS LIKE A MIX WITH FUTURE AND DRAKE

    • Bar-Skizzle

      Drake is the best… my life. he’s weak. People like Kendrick Lamar and Jon Connor decimate this guy, beat for beat, lyric for lyric. It not even about how many number ones you have or how many records you sell, its which emcee has the best ability and lyrics. Tech n9ne for instance, amazing flow and his lyrics are raw, drake.. he rapping about ponies, car, money, weezy and himself. He’s weak.

      • It’s Just Music

        Let Kendrick prove to the world he still has many Good Kid Mad Cities in him before you give him the verdict.
        Kendrick is dope as hell and I have no doubt he has crazy shit to come. But legends do the same thing TWICE and consistently.
        Drake has been consistent since day 1.

        Tech N9ne can’t write songs. He is a gimmick rapper like Hopsin. No one cares about flow or lyrics. They want a good and relatable song.

  • jaja420

    you guys do realize he’s only been in the game 5 years that’s 2 number 1’s every year, cut down on the hate

    • http://www.PhillztheMC.com Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

  • GetReal

    coming from a huge kdot fan hating on drake is pointless the nigga still gon win regardless smh and i try to not like him but he’s just better than 98% of the game right and you would have to be bitter fucking retard not to realize this, its literally no reason to say anything bad about him cuz it changes nothin he’s still doing better than your favorite rapper, he still has more hits for the car, iPod, and club, he still will garner the most attention and i think I’ve finally come to realization with this anyone hating on drake is obviously just a lame ass old nigga who doesn’t get out much

  • http://www.primocreative.com PrimoCrtv

    Lol yall are sooo mad. Keep killin’ em Drizzy!

  • M.A.T.

    He’s been out for 5 years and has 71 singles. Then you have an artist like George Strait who has 94 singles that span over a period of 32 years. Now tell me today’s music isn’t over saturated.
