Kendrick Lamar Wins Pulitzer Prize For DAMN

Published

on

The Grammys snubbed Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN for Album of The Year. But Kendrick just got the last laugh.

K. Dot has become the first rap artist ever to win a Pulitzer Prize in music for his most recent album DAMN.

Even more impressive, DAMN is the first album in Pulitzer history to take home the prize that wasn’t a piece of classical music or jazz. According to the Associated Press, “The Pulitzer board on Monday called the album a work that captures the complexity of African-American life.”

“LeBron James or the little boy around the corner, we come from the same struggles, and it comes out of my mouth for them to relate to,” Lamar told Dave Chappelle of the album inInterview Magazine last summer. “I don’t want anybody to classify my music. I want them to say, ‘This is somebody who’s recognizing his true feelings … and views on the world, all on one record.’ I want people to recognize that and to take it and apply it to their own lives.”

DAMN. debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated May 6, 2017, and spent four nonconsecutive weeks atop the list. Lamar’s third album was also racked up over 3 million units sold for the Compton artist.
