Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city Debuts at #2 on Billboard

blame it on Shake October 30, 2012

Going up against Taylor Swift (who sold 1.2 million copies of her new album RED this week) is a pretty hefty task for anyone to take on, so the #2 spot is pretty much a victory all around for our generation’s Nas (says one A$AP Rocky). In the first week on the shelves, the Compton kid’s Interscope debut sold an impressive 242k copies (according to HDD*). And to help celebrate, Kendrick dropped off a new song produced by J. Cole today, check it out right here.

If you haven’t already, be sure to let us know your thoughts on the album in our official review post of GKMC as well.

*Final numbers are in tomorrow morning and we’ll update post with it.
