Kanye West has produced more No. 1 hip hop songs than any other artist, Hip Hop By The Numbers reports. The Chicago native clenched the record this week after Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s hit “Industry Baby,” which Kanye co-produced with Take A Daytrip, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single has been a mainstay on the chart for weeks, but recently shot up to the top spot, helping Kanye make history.

According to Hip Hop By The Numbers, Diddy previously held the producer record with four No. 1 hip hop songs: “I’ll Be Missing You,” “Mo Money Mo Problems,” “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” and The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize.”

However, with “Industry Baby” reaching No. 1, Kanye has now produced five Billboard hits. According to Billboard, the song is also the first Ye-produced track to top the chart since the rapper’s 2007 song, “Stronger.” Prior to that, he produced chart-toppers “Stand Up” by Ludacris, “Slow Jamz” with Twista and Jamie Foxx and “Gold Digger.”

Back in July, Lil Nas X discussed working with Kanye during an interview with Kerwin Frost. However, the 22-year-old hitmaker refused to give up any specific details about how they met.

“How did that happen? I actually can’t tell you,” Lil Nas said. “I can’t. Not yet at least. It’s just like a thing, you want to protect connections. We talked. He’s a pretty cool guy, super down to earth. He’s super talented. He showed me some stuff. He’s working on some great music.”

“It’s nice to work with somebody who’s done that for so long — so much longevity and still going. And like constantly evolving,” he continued. “Not even just evolving, but completely changing into something else. He’s also doing something different and new. Over and over and over again recreating himself.”

As reported by REVOLT, Kanye recently debuted a new shaved hairdo and legally changed his name to Ye. While the now-permanent nickname was something fans have anticipated for a while, his haircut caught some social media users by surprise — namely Chris Brown, who joked that Ye “got the punishment haircut.”
