I made the Carter III so that whatever song is on it, it will stick with you forever

NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 24, 2008

Tha Carter III, Lil Wayne's multi-platinum album continues to skyrocket with "Mrs. Officer" holding the #1 position on Mediabase Urban charts — the album's fourth #1 and ninth hit single.

Lil Wayne's growing list of accomplishments includes a shelf full of newly acquired trophies to add to his collection. Most recently, he won the highly coveted Artists Choice Award at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards, selected by hundreds of acts from around the world. Kelly Rowland presented Wayne with the award on Nov. 6 in Liverpool, England. Out of a dozen nominations, Lil Wayne took home 7 BET Hip -Hop Awards at the October ceremony. The accolades include Lyricist of the Year, Alltel Wireless People's Champ and Track of the Year for "A Mill." His track, "I'm So Hood" with DJ Khaled was awarded Best Collaboration. Lil Wayne also won Ringtone of the Year for "Lollipop."

Most recently the iconic superstar received a People's Choice Award nomination for Favorite Hip-Hop Song for "Lollipop" and Artist Of The Year, Favorite Male Artist (Hip-Hop/Rap Music) and Favorite Album (Hip-Hop/Rap Music) for 2008 American Music Awards.

"I made the Carter III so that whatever song is on it, it will stick with you forever," Lil Wayne in a declaration now proven fact. Lil Wayne scored Universal Motown's biggest first week ever, selling over one million units in one week of Tha Carter III in June. "Lollipop" shattered records holding steady for 12 weeks at #1 – the longest run for any #1 song in this decade. It's no wonder that Blender crowned him the "Greatest Rock Star Alive."
