Kendrick Lamar's latest album "DAMN." which was released on April has been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. K Dot took to Instagram to make the announcement.
The sales milestone marks the first time the TDE rapper has achieved the feat in his career; he's the first and only artist to be certified double platinum in 2017.
These murals forever belong to my fans. You've always taken my words above and beyond. Around the world and back again. With trust. I am forever grateful. 2x" the Compton rapper wrote to his supporters.
DAMN. was released on April 14 and sold 603,000 units in its first week, marking the highest first-week sales of 2017. It sold another 239,000 units in its second week, and sold 170,000 in its third week.

    This nigga over here in a prison pose for a certification picture. Black people, I swear.

    Man, if y'all would've told me 7 years ago K Dot would be the highest selling artist of the year, I would've dropped you where you stand. Congrats to the Duck.

    Sidebar: I just learned that battle rapper B Dot was on them songs with him back in the day. Now he's coming up. Gotta love it.

    I dont listen to Kendrick cause I just cant get into his style but I do know dude got bars and makes deep records with depth and substance and I cant help but be happy about someone with real bars going double platinum so props to Kendrick for real.

    Congrats....
    I can recall the days, juvenile crime pays

    my loot get recouped razors in my suit
    incase they try to troop me to the island
    I known to start whylin back in New York, my soldiers got the cash pilin
    peep this on some nose and teef shit
    so much drama, who the fuck knows who we got beef wit

    Can niggas stop crying about the state of hip hop. This nigga Kendrick was literally outselling every mumble rapper on that mumble rappers debut week and Damn had been out for weeks or month. Jay just went plat. Cole put an average album out and went plat. Big Sean stepped his game up and sold fairly well

    Same thing with venues. These mumble rappers are opening up shows or performing in clubs. Meanwhile Cole, Kendrick, and Jay all have arena tours doing well selling out most major cities. Sure the golden era is over but the best music typically is selling the most and bringing the largest crowds.

    These dudes will go platinum no matter what because they have a large white hipster fanbase that will buy it. Same with Eminem.

    This isn't 15 years ago where new artists could go plat of a hit single. You have to actually have a large fan base and be established.

    Eminem, jay, Kendrick and Cole will go plat even if the album is trash.

    I can't see Marshall having a bad album especially after MMLP2 (which I thought was dope definitely his best since TES) and people being more accepting of older MCs rapping about more mature topics.

    I remember when Big Sean, Wale, Cole and Kendrick were coming up and trying to hone a fan base and niggas were dissing them for not selling big. I ain't gon lie if you pull up the threads I might have been one of them dudes dissing on them. It really worked out for Big Sean, Cole, Kendrick and even Drake. KRIT could be there too but he has to stop giving his music away for free.
