Another win for Kendrick Lamar! Just today, the TDE rapper was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his fourth studio album, DAMN. This marks the first non-classical or jazz artist to receive this honor. During the announcement today, the Pulitzer board called the 2017 project “a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African American life.”
DAMN. has not only reached double-Platinum status, but it was also nominated for Album of the Year and won Best Rap Album at the Grammy’s this year. Congrats, K Dot! Well-deserved.
