Kendrick Lamar Becomes the First Rapper To Win Pulitzer Prize

Kendrick Lamar makes history with a Pulitzer Prize for his ‘DAMN’ album. More details inside.

Washington, D.C –

Certain music awards just take your breath away as these artists continue to achieve what many deemed impossible. They walk in and out of studios everyday regardless of the weather in their lives and in some parts of work, you can hear the pain. Kendrick Lamar released an album last year that you can feel that pain on. That’s art.

Well, that album has received quite the award  and Kendrick Lamar continues to prove his excellence. The Compton superstar has received a Pulitzer Prize for his album, DAMN.


Congratulations to Kendrick Lamar for becoming the first rapper to win such an honor!
