Kendrick Lamar Finally Tops the Billboard Charts With To Pimp a Butterfly

TIME

Despite being widely regarded as the best rapper around—even by those who defeat him at the Grammys—Kendrick Lamar hadn’t yet topped the charts with an album. That changed Friday when To Pimp a Butterfly debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated April 4.

The rapper had previously made it to No. 2 on the charts with Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City in 2012.

Fun fact: To Pimp a Butterfly also now holds the record for being the first No. 1 album with the word “pimp” in the title. The closest any other record with the word “pimp” has ever come is Pimp C’s Pimpalation, which made it to No. 3 in 2006.
