Kendrick Lamar Gets Pulitzer Prize (pics)


Kendrick Lamar PulitzerKUDOS to Kendrick Lamar, a true artist and a credit to the hip hop music industry indeed. This much deserved Pulitzer Prize-winning award is groundbreaking. He is the first rap artist/musician outside of the usual Classical and Jazz genres to be recognized by the world renown organization. To that end, it’s not like they said let’s just pick ANYBODY from the rap community to help with our brand, they really did make the best choice. Columbia President Lee Bollinger described Lamar’s fourth LP ‘DAMN’ as a “virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African American life.” and he’s right. The organization was started in 1917 and is also known for awarding outstanding journalists, authors, photographers, world leaders and more.
