Kendrick Lamar Makes History, Wins Pulitzer Prize For Music For "DAMN"

Kendrick Lamar Makes History, Wins Pulitzer Prize For Music For

Kendrick Lamar kicked off the 60th Annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden on Sunday in New York City.

While the organization did not immediately provide a brief explanation for the recording winning the prestigious prize, Kendrick Lamar's album features lyrics from the California crooner attacking President Donald Trump, Fox News, and police brutality.

"A virtuosic song collection", the Pulitzer board writes of DAMN.

The Times also shared the national reporting Pulitzer with rival the Washington Post, in recognition of each newspaper's dedicated coverage of Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.




The 2017 Pulitzer Prize for music went to "Angel's Bone", an opera by composer Du Yun.

It follows the five Grammy awards won by Lamar in January for the same album. The victor receives a $15,000 prize. Late a year ago, Lamar released a "collector's edition" of DAMN. with the original album's tracklist reversed - played back-to-front it revealed even more of the album's shifting, contrasting revelations of self.
