The approach to each of these albums couldn't be more different.
Get Rich or Die Trying carries a nostalgic/sentimental value, and is a classic album for sure. He got 3-5 radio hits from it, and had every possible outlet on smash. I still bump it to this day. Many Men is my favorite cut.
With that said Good Kid Maad City doesn't stand a chance as Kendrick Lamar is not necessarily a commercially viable artist built off beef with the whole macho rap superstar angle. That shit sells to the fans outside of hip hop. Anyways, Kendrick made a great album that only gets discounted by those simple minded fools, and they're gonna have ammo, because it might not touch Platinum for a loooong time. Bet Kendrick respect amongst peers, and fans last longer than 50 when it comes to emceeing though.
Kendrick still hasn't dropped shit w/ Dre production, the lady gaga feature, track w/ eminem, or anything major neither.
