Kendrick Lamar wins Pulitzer Prize for his album ‘Damn’


Kendrick Lamar is an American rapper and songwriter. Many of us know his music from the movie ‘The Black Panther’.

Last week he won the Pulitzer Prize for his fourth album, ‘Damn’.  He received the award during a ceremony at Columbia University in New York City. The Pulitzer Prize is one of the most sought-after prizes in journalism, writing, poetry, and music.

Lamar’s win is important because he is the first rapper in history to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music. The prize is usually awarded to more classical forms of music such as symphonies or operas.

His music is a mix of hip-hop, jazz, poetry and African sounds. The lyrics in his songs have deep meaning and cover subjects like African American lives, street life, police brutality, perseverance, survival and self-worth.

In a Facebook video, he says, “It’s an honor. Been writing my whole life, so to get this type of recognition, it’s beautiful.”
