Kendrick Lamar might find it harder to be humble — his “DAMN” album just won a prestigious Pulitzer Prize.
The Pulitzer committee made the unprecedented announcement Monday … hailing Kendrick’s album 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.”
Translation: That s**t is dope.
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.
A lot of people feel Kendrick was snubbed at the Grammys for Album of the Year (Bruno Mars took that statue), but with the Pulitzer peeps … game recognize game!
