Kendrick Lamar Collects 14 More RIAA Certifications, Surpassing 70M Total Units

“This what God feel like.”

Less than a week after every track on his fourth studio album, DAMN., earned RIAA certification, Kendrick Lamar is once again making headlines, this time with a 14-certification-heavy left hook. 

Of note, with these 14 additional Gold and Platinum plaques, Lamar now has over 70 million total units certified across his solo work (albums and singles) and his features.

Lamar’s certifications include tracks from both Good Kid, M.A.A.D City and To Pimp A Butterfly, including a Platinum plaque for the feel-good anthem “i,” which earns the nod nearly four years after its initial release. Better late than never, obviously.
