Kendrick Lamar becomes the other only Hip-Hop artist to have his album on the Billboard charts for over 300 weeks. He birthed his debut studio album “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” back in 2012. The album now sits at No. 116 on the Billboard 200 list and just passed the mark for its 300th week.

Altogether, there have been 22 albums in other genres that have reached this milestone. The album that leads the race is Pink Floyd’s iconic “The Dark Side of the Mood” (937 weeks) and in second place is Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “Legend: The Best… a.k.a.”

According to Billboard, “Kendrick’s album sits next to Eminem’s’ projects: 2010’s “Recovery” (312 weeks). 2002’s “The Eminem Show” (354 weeks) and 2005’s “Curtain Call: The Hits” (403 weeks).”

Congrats to Kendrick!
