Kendrick Lamar is truly legendary as the rapper took home a Pulitzer Prize for his masterpiece DAMN. This makes him the first non-classical, non-jazz artist to win the prestigious award.

Former Pulitzer recipients in the music category were limited to classical and jazz composers and/or musicians but Kendrick's phenomenal album has broken the tradition. The organization described DAMN. as a "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life".
