Kendrick Lamar wins 2018 Pulitzer Prize for music

Since 1917, the first time the Pulitzer was awarded, the category for music has been awarded to a classical or jazz artist.

The Pulitzer board called the 5 x Grammy winning DAMN a "virtuosic song collection" which captures "the modern African American life". The Pulitzer board rarely awards mainstream music, a year ago giving the prize to the experimental opera composer Du Yun. The 30-year-old musician won five Grammy awards in January for the album.

Kendrick Lamar has released at least one album every year since his debut in 2015, including, most recently, the accompanying soundtrack for Marvel's "Black Panther", which he curated.

"But, thankfully for fans, Lamar's fourth studio album.is worth the time it takes to unpack". In the nearly 40 years since the Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight", rap has become an ever more dominant cultural and commercial force, but it has almost always been denied the validation handed out by mainstream gatekeepers.

Speaking after the winners were announced, Pulitzer Prize administrator Dana Canedy told the outlet, "The time was right". Then the Pulitzer board meets in secret to determine the winners.
