Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut, good kid, m.A.A.d city, did just as well commercially as it did critically. As Billboard reports, the Compton rapper’s album sold 241,000 copies in its first week of release, giving him the best sales week for a male artist since Drake’s Thank Me Later moved 447,000 copies in June 2012.

Lamar also had the second best sales week of any rapper in 2012, topping stalwarts like Rick Ross, Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music, and Nas. Only Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded sold more copies (253,000).

Let’s all celebrate by giving this great album another spin.
