Kendrick Wins Bigger Than Big

Kendrick Lamar has done it again! “It” meaning blowing our minds with his musical greatness. The 30 year-old Compton native will no longer be known as just a lyrical genius but a Pulitzer prize winning-lyrical genius. That’s right, Kendrick is the first ever rapper to win a Pulitzer Prize. Yes! THE FIRST EVER RAPPER TO WIN A PULITZER! The rapper was awarded for his recent album “DAMN.” that came out this time last year.

Because of his emotional and politically charged lyrics, many other music experts and hip-hop enthusiasts have been praising Kendrick for his “self-expression.” Humbly, Kendrick has mentioned many times before that he never wants people to classify his music.
He stated, “I want them to say, ‘This is somebody who’s recognizing his true feelings, his true emotions, ideas, thoughts, opinions, and views on the world, all on one record.’ I want people to recognize that and to take it and apply it to their own lives.”
This is why he is so deserving of his recent 7 Grammy wins and Pulitzer Prize. The rapper’s win on Monday makes him the first non-classical or jazz artist to win the award. Be on the lookout as Kendrick continues to break records on tour this summer with the rest of his extremely talented music label, “TDE”. We are sure to be in for a treat.
