On March 1, 2007, New York rapper MIMS reigned the Billboard 100 chart through the song "This Is Why I'm Hot" that jumped 31 places from #32 straight ahead to #1. The leap was recorded as the third biggest in the chart's history and the first #1 single for its label, the Capitol Records. The song was suddenly a high demand in various radio stations with a total spin up to 1000 per week and a growing 59 million listeners.
The exact following week, the single still ruled the chart by maintaining the #1 post. Making a one-night change of fate, he and his music had saved the rap image that had been going mild at that time. He went on saying, "I represent New York. N**** say that we lost it, so I'm-a bring it back."
