Ludacris and Diddy have been having a little fun on Twitter, talking about who would be the first rapper to have six songs reach #1 on The Billboard Hot 100. First, Ludacris tweeted that he was the first rapper to do so. Diddy congratulated him, but called Ludacris to let him know that he already had 5 and so, the challenge to 6 was on.

It was at this point that Ludacris revealed that the two would appear on the same track soon and if that went number 1, then it would be a battle for 7. Diddy agreed, saying that they'd get 6 together and then go for 7, but that he's still number 1 and you must "beat the champ to get the belt."

Obviously, they're just having fun, while also being two proud individuals. So, I thought I'd pull up their respective Hot 100 histories and break them down. Below, check out how they stack up. When the song posted was not simply listed as by Diddy or Ludacris and featuring someone else, I included who the song was credited to, as the primary artist.

In summary, there are different ways to look at this. Ludacris has been more prolific, as far as this one metric is concerned, since he has 10 more titles that have charted. But, the tracks that Diddy has been featured on have peaked 4.9 spots higher on average. And, of course, Diddy has produced or co-produced many of the tracks listed here while Ludacris doesn't produce that often. At the end of the day, they are both highly successful recording artists.
