Kendrick Lamar‘s 2012 album, good kid, m.A.A.d. City has now spent 350 weeks on the Billboard 200It’s a milestone for the project, as it currently ties with Eminem‘s The Eminem Show as the only hip-hop studio album to do so.

In a 2014 profile on Kendrick for the New York Times, Eminem is quoted as saying, “He raps to be the best rapper in the world. He competitive-raps. That’s one of the things that’s going to drive his career. He’s going to be around for a long time.”

Eminem‘s 2017 album Revival officially debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the rapper’s eighth consecutive number one debut. Em is the first act in history to achieve the feat.
