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.

Meek had been fighting for his release while appealing a two- to four-year sentence for a probation violation.

To celebrate his release from prison, Meek Mill was flown out by helicopter to the Game 5 Sixers vs Heat game.

Said Mill on Twitter:

On Facebook, Jay-Z said of Meek Mill: “He was incarcerated unjustly and caught in a probation trap for years by a broken system. Now we can celebrate his release. We thank every individual that has supported and fought alongside Meek every step of the way.”

J. Cole has shared his new music video for “Kevin’s Heart.”  Cole and Kevin have been friends for years so it was surprising when the track made his KOD album. A bigger surprise is that Kevin is starring in the video about the aftermath of his scandal.

While at least two women attempt to lure him with her beauty, another man encourages the 38-year-old to learn from his mistakes. When Hart finally makes it home without succumbing to temptation, the clouds form the phrase “Choose Wisely” in the sky.

Hart himself also tweeted about the video.
