As we draw near to a close on a decade there will be many who make their lists for the best Hip-Hop albums in the timespan. Without a doubt Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city will deserve a slot. The classic is still bringing records and just tied a record that is held by Eminem’s The Eminem Show.
The project is arguably Lamar’s best work and now is the second Hip-Hop studio album to spend 350 weeks in the Billboard 200 charts.
