(AllHipHop News) Only three rappers have an album spend a minimum of 300 weeks on the Billboard 200. Two of those artists achieved that impressive feat in 2018.
Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city (319) crossed that milestone in August. Last week, Drake's Take Care (301) also spent its 300th week on the album chart.
The two Hip Hop juggernauts joined Eminem in the exclusive 300-week club. Eminem's Recovery (320), The Eminem Show (356) and Curtain Call: The Hits (422) are also among the 23 albums to be listed on the Billboard 200 at least 300 times.
The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd holds the all-time record with 938 weeks. The iconic Rock band is followed by Bob Marley and the Wailers' Legend (551), Journey's Journey's Greatest Hits (541), and Metallica's Metallica (512). Bruno Mars recently became the 9th act to mark 400 weeks on the chart with Doo-Wops & Hooligans.
Take Care was released November 15, 2011. The LP hosts the singles "Marvins Room," "Headlines," "Make Me Proud" featuring Nicki Minaj, and "The Motto" featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga. Drake's sophomore studio set won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album in 2013.
