Kendrick Lamar has officially secured the ninth RIAA certification of his career for Section.80 single "A.D.H.D.," which, as of Monday, May 8, was certified Gold for sales exceeding 500,000 units.

The Sounwave-produced "A.D.H.D" is the first track from Lamar's recently Gold-certified breakthrough project, released on July 2, 2011, to earn a certification of any kind. 

Earlier this month, Kendrick's newly-released album DAMN. was certified Platinum, which, in addition to being the fastest certification of his career, marked his fourth certification of 2017, including To Pimp a Butterfly single "Alright."
