KENDRICK LAMAR WINS PULITZER PRIZE

We already knew how special Kendrick Lamar was. The Compton rapper has just become the first rapper ever to win Pulitzer Prize. The award is as a result of his critically acclaimed album DAMN. The Pulitzer Prize Board described the release as a “virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life.” The album is the first non-jazz or classical album to win the award.
