Kendrick Lamar Explains How Word Of Mouth Helped With His Sales
Kendrick Lamar explains about his album sales, an album with J. Cole and Shyne comments. Artists have been defending Kendrick Lamar from Shyne’s remarks about his debut album, “good kid, m.A.A.d city.”
In a recent interview with Bootleg Kev of Power 98.3, K.Dot just revealed that he had yet to speak of the rapper and even referred to Shyne as being a “good dude.”
“Shout out to Shyne man. He’s a good dude man. He’s a real good dude,” said Kendrick Lamar.
He even spoke about his album selling tens of thousands more copies than expected in its first week. Kendrick Lamar’s album then started to increase thanks to the word of mouth about the album.
“Probably like 210 thousand,” said Kendrick when asked how many copies he expected his album to sell in its first week. “Somewhere around there, but you know. What happened was the album dropped and then the same thing that’s been happening with my career since day one, just word of mouth. You start seeing little small reviews and people start talking about it and telling the next person to go get it. With that being said that trickles down to another few thousands and the next day another few thousands and the next day.”
