Jay-Z Now More Successful Than Elvis

Posted By on Wed, Sep 16, 2009 at 12:27 PM

Our own Ben Sutton wondered, in his review of The Blueprint 3, just what the hell will be left for Jay-Z to rap about when it comes time to release The Blueprint 4 or I Get To Have Sex With Beyonce and You Don't or whatever his next album will be called. But now that The Blueprint 3 moved 476,000 copies in its first week, debuting at the top of the Billboard Albums chart, Jay has officially passed Elvis Presley as the solo artist with the most Number One albums ever. I think it's safe to assume we can count on at least a dozen lines about this. Most of them will be awesome and racially driven, some will definitely rhyme "Elvis" with "pelvis," and at least one will refer to the Marcy Projects as a Heartbreak Hotel.
