Almost 10 months to the day, Kendrick Lamar's debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city has officially sold one million copies.
Released on October 22, 2012, the album sold 242K in its first week and has continued to stay afloat the Billboard 200 chart throughout 2013. The album sold 9K this week, a 22% increase from last week's results, to break the milestone. Clearly, his verse on Big Sean's "Control" had a direct effect in the boost of sales.
While the Compton rapper already received a platinum plaque in June for albums shipped —he was sitting at 938,389 at the time— this is a more official tally to go by. Congrats to Kendrick Lamar and the whole Top Dawg Entertainment camp.
