There’s nothing Kung-Fu Kenny isn’t capable of of, as he slices up the competition again this week!
According to Interscope Records, Kendrick Lamar‘s DAMN. reached platinum status on Thursday (May 5th).
Interscope broke the news via their Twitter yesterday, while the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) declared Kendrick’s fourth effort as certified platinum less than a month (!!!) since its April 14th release. Lamar’s hot streak is still red-hot with astoundingly consecutive accomplishments.

Let’s recap all of Kendrick’s most recent accolades:
- DAMN. is the first album of 2017 to go platinum
- All 14 tracks appeared on the Billboard Hot 100
- DAMN. sold more than 600,000 units the first week, beating Drake’s More Life opening weeks sales by 100,000 units
The videos for “Humble” and “DNA.” are carving out more success for Kendrick too.
K. Dot torched the Coachella festival as a headliner this year— so something tells me we have yet to get the best of him as he prepares for The DAMN. Tour. The tour will feature D.R.A.M. and Travis Scott. Check out the dates below. Tickets can be purchased here.
