This is shaping up to be quite a week for hip-hop as two major singles go gold and another goes platinum. Kendrick Lamar and Lupe Fiasco are each the proud owners of a new gold record as KL’s Drake-assisted “Poetic Justice” and “Battle Scars” featuring Guy Sebastian both pass the 500,000 copies sold mark.
Meanwhile A$AP Rocky gets his very own platinum record with “Fuckin’ Problems,” featuring Drake, 2 Chainz and Kendrick himself, passing the million copies mark. The albums themselves — Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city, Fiasco's Food & Liquor II and Rocky's Long.Live.A$AP — are all out now.
