Kendrick Lamar won a Pulitzer Prize

Some incredible news broke yesterday - Kendrick Lamar has become the first non-classical, non-jazz artist and FIRST HIP HOP artist to win the Pulitzer Prize for music for his 2017 album DAMN.

As stated by the prize listing, Kendrick's DAMN won because of “a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life.”
