Kendrick Lamar Wins a Pulitzer Prize for "Damn"

Kendrick Lamar's album "DAMN" just won a prestigious Pulitzer Prize.

The Pulitzer committee made the Monday saying Kendrick's album was "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life."

With the win, Kendrick becomes the first non-classical or jazz artist to win a Pulitzer since they started awarding them for music in 1943.
