American rapper, Kendrick Lamar has achieved a new feat as he has tied Eminmen’s Billboard record.
On Monday, Chart Data tweeted that Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D City album has tied Eminem’s The Eminem Show as the only hip-hop studio albums to appear on the Billboard 200 chart for 350 weeks.
Apart from the mainstream numbers and Dr. Dre connection between the two greats, both rappers have respect for each other. Kendrick revealed also that he learned a lot from Eminem and he inspired him in one of his tracks in GKMC “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 told Vibe. “Eminem was definitely a sought-out player that I always respected and looked up to.”
Now the Student is on the verge of surpassing his teacher.
GKMC currently sits at No. 152, a decent position to overtake the record.
