New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Kendrick Lamar will no doubt go down in rap history for being one of the greatest of the 2010s - and it looks like his chart dominance is making history, too.
On Monday, Chart Data tweeted that K. Dot's good kid, m.A.A.d city album has tied Eminem's The Eminem Show as the only hip-hop studio albums to appear on the Billboard 200 chart for 350 weeks.

Besides their Dr. Dre connection and mainstream numbers, Eminem and Kendrick are connected by the admiration Dot has for Eminem. The Pulitzer Prize winner dubbed Eminem the "best wordsmith ever" during a 2018 interview with Vanity Fair. He also went on record stating that observing Eminem's studio behavior inspired GKMC's "Backseat Freestyle."
"When I have that aggression in the record like that [on "Backseat Freestyle"], that's tricks that I learned being in that studio and dedicating myself; being a student," Kendrick told Vibe. "Eminem was definitely a sought-out player that I always respected and looked up to."

Now the student is in a position to surpass the teacher. GKMC currently sits at No. 152, a decent position to overtake the record.
