The Compton emcee’s 2011 project Section.80 has finally received Gold certification from the RIAA. It’s taken the fan favorite six years to achieve a gold status with Section.80. While it has taken several years for the now-classic project to receive the respect it truly deserves in regard to sales, let us not forget that Kendrick has two platinum albums under his belt. Kendrick Lamar also earned his first platinum plaque for a single a couple months ago, so 2017 is being really good to Kendrick. When DAMN. officially goes gold within the coming weeks, Kendrick will have two new gold plaques to hang up this summer.
