DAMN., didn’t see this coming.
Kendrick Lamar adds another accolade to his collection as he wins the Pulitzer Prize for Music thanks to his DAMN. album. This award might sit above the others though just off the simple fact of it being a big win for hip-hop since this is the first time a non-classical or jazz artist didn’t win.
The 2017 album is defined as “a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life” via the Pulitzer committee.
Congrats to the entire TDE team!
