Kendrick Lamar‘s good kid m.A.A.d city has been declared by many hip hop fans to already be a classic album. Although the project was released back in 2012, it has proven to stand the test of time.
According to Chart Data, Kendrick Lamar’s album has officially spent 350 total weeks on the Billboard 200. This is a historic feat, considering it joins The Eminem Show as the only other hip-hop album to ever hit that mark. Meaning, the longer Lamar continues to dominates the charts the faster he will surpass Eminem.

Both rappers have the Dr. Dre connection and continue to put out big numbers when they release albums, so it’s great to see Lamar reaching what Em previously achieved. Lamar has previously shown love for the Detroit rapper, even calling him the “best wordsmith ever” and saying how he inspired “Backseat Freestyle.”
“When I have that aggression in the record like that [on “Backseat Freestyle“], that’s tricks that I learned being in that studio and dedicating myself; being a student,” Kendrick previously told Vibe. “Eminem was definitely a sought-out player that I always respected and looked up to.”
