Now eight weeks deep, HipHopDX is giving you you the 10 most popular singles on the site from the past week. After every week our staff will give you the ranked list since the past Monday, based on visits. These numbers are reflective from the time of posting.

Lil Wayne Takes Over The Charts

Lil Wayne is back in a major way. With Tha Carter IV coming fast, the Cash Money Records veteran emcee unloaded Sorry 4 The Wait, the mixtape with a bulk of new material. The HipHopDX readers ate it up like ziti. Wayne had a record-breaking five songs on the Top 10 this week, with one of those being in the form of a featured role for his Young Money artist Jae Millz.

Wale’s Ramp-Up

Now signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, Wale is on fire again. The 2008 HipHopDX “Rookie of the Year” winner teamed up with then-runner-up B.o.B. and Big Sean for “First Class,” as well as another peer collaboration of sorts, with J. Cole.
