Kendrick Lamar’s “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City” becomes the longest charting traditional Hip-hop album on the Billboard 200 Albums chart.
Everytime Kendrick raps, the charts shudder because they know he always comes to stay. He’s almost never passing through. The popular Hip-hop star has recorded a lot of success with his music over the years, and his early material still stand strong as much as the recent ones.
The “I” rapper last dropped an album when he curated the Black Panther soundtrack which became a huge success. That was over two years ago. He also last released a solo album after he dropped “DAMN” over three years back to massive acclaim.
Since then, fans have longed for more new music from him but he’s been silent. It’s only fair that they go back to his previously released music. According to new reports, Kendrick’s breakout project “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City” has become the longest charting traditional Hip-hop album after lodging 400 frames on the chart.
The album is currently at no.100 on the Billboard 200 chart this week. However, Eminem’s “Curtain Call: The Hits” beats the album in that category as it edges closer to 500. But, Em’s album is a greatest hits compilation while Kendrick’s is full of “new material” which doesn’t really compare to a traditional album.
