Hard work pays off. Kendrick Lamar continues to dominate the charts with his impressive fourth studio album “Damn.” The Bompton emcee can officially add another platinum project to his list of accomplishments.
The project was officially certified platinum by the RIAA Thursday.
Kendrick’s label, Interscope Records, made the announcement on Twitter.
Kendrick recently received praise from fellow platinum-selling artist The Game.
Game took to social media to praise his fellow Bompton emcee, saying Tupac would’ve been proud.
Game confidently told followers K. Dot’s LP is “dope as f**k.”
“If you are a true fan of Hip Hop, then you have it memorized by now!!!” Game said. “If you are a hip hop fan & you do not have @kendricklamar s**t by now… F**K You, that’s on Compton, Bompton and my hood and kids.”
Game, once a pupil and now a teacher of the culture, told followers he studied the album, and is proud.
“K-Dot, you know where we from and what it took for n****s like us to not only make it out the HUB alive but to achieve greatness on the same accord is nothing short of a blessing,” he wrote on IG. “This s**t got me real motivated.. glad real rap still exist… no disrespect to you sucka n****s.. but f**k y’all, you can’t rap, and ya mama know you ain’t s**t.”
Game continued his passionate rant, saying Tupac would’ve been proud.
