Kendrick Lamar has made history!
The 30-year-old has become the first rapper to ever win the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in music for his latest album DAMN.
This is the first time the prize has been awarded to someone outside of classical or jazz.
In awarding him the prize, the Pulitzer board called DAMN:
“A virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life.”
Stand up, don’t be humble!
Looks like the album’s 5 Grammys now have some more company.
KENDRICK IS THE GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE
