Kendrick Lamar is one of the most authentic artist on the scene today. He displays this both through his music, and his consistent love for his fans. With the type of connection he has with his fans, there is no coincidence the DAMN. album has gone double platinum.
Last week Kendrick surprised mega-fan Jennifer Phillips on the Texas stop of the DAMN. Tour. To show his appreciation, he gifted her with an autographed jacket with personalized note, “Duckworth” Mavericks Jersey, and a brand new wheelchair accessible van.
This week he continues to appreciate his fans by attributing his double platinum status to those that have taken his lyrics to heart. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified Kendrick double platinum on July 10th after having sold over 2 million units of his album within 3 months. The DAMN. album is now the highest selling album of 2017 thus far. This success makes K Dot the first, and the only artist to be certified double platinum this year!
“These murals forever belong to my fans. You’ve always taken my words above and beyond. Around the world and back again. With trust. I am forever grateful. 2x,” – From K Dot, to his fans via Instagram.
