At this point, Kendrick Lamar’s second studio album ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’ should be regarded as a classic. This was his sophomore album which was released in October of 2012. This arrived a year after Lamar’s debut album, ‘Section.80.’ good kid, m.A.A.d city was the breakout album for Lamar in addition to being his major label debut with Aftermath and Interscope Records. The biggest singles highlighted on this project were ‘Swimming Pools,’ ‘B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,’ and ‘Poetic Justice‘ featuring Drake.
good kid, m.A.A.d city is certified 3x platinum by the RIAA and has now reached another huge milestone. According to Chart Data, it has now surpassed Eminem’s ‘The Eminem Show’ as the longest charting hip-hop studio album in Billboard 200 history. The Eminem Show was at 357 weeks while good kid, m.A.A.d city has eclipsed 358.
good kid, m.A.A.d city also has a great argument for being the best west coast album since 2Pac’s ‘All Eyez On Me.’ Hip-hop fans in this era should be glad they got to witness the release of this album and its success. Congratulations to Kendrick Lamar on another accomplishment that adds on to his resume of being one of the best artists of all-time.
