Kendrick Lamar’s 2012 Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is now the longest-charting hip-hop album in U.S. chart history.
The album was Lamar’s second studio album and was released back in fall, 2012. The album has now spent 400 weeks on the Billboard 200 album chart. This makes it the longest-charting hip hop album in U.S. history.
The record features the popular songs “B***h, Don’t Kill My Vibe” and “Backseat Freestyle.”
Since then, Lamar has released two other studio albums, To Pimp a Butterfly (2015) and Damn (2017). In 2018 he was in charge of the Black Panther soundtrack. It has been more than 2 years since we received any new music from the rapper but he is anticipated to return with an announcement soon.
During an Instagram live session, TDE boss Anthony Tiffith said: “Stay patient. King Kendrick will return soon.”
It’s not much to go on but after three years of silence, we are hoping that the buzz from Lamar’s new record will encourage him to share an update on when we can expect his next album.
