Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly has been getting rave reviews, and now it has set a new record. According to Billboard, Kendrick’s latest set is the first album with “pimp” in its title to be No. 1 on the charts.
Previously, the highest charting album was Pimp C’s Pimpalation, which landed at No. 3 in 2006. Other albums with “pimp” in its name worth mentioning are Too $hort's Shorty the Pimp (No. 6 in 1992), JT Money's Pimpin On Wax (No. 28 in 1999) and Dirty's Keep It Pimp & Gangsta (No. 63 in 2003). It’s safe to say K. Dot is one step closer to having his album title taught in college courses someday.
To Pimp a Butterfly sold 324,000 physical copies with the final number including streams being 363,000. Enjoy this album now because it's going to be awhile until we get another from K. Dot.
