Who wants a Grammy whenever you’ve bought a Pulitzer? That’s actually how Kendrick Lamar needs to be feeling proper about now. In a 12 months through which he was snubbed as soon as once more by the Grammy’s within the Album Of The Yr class, at the moment it was revealed that Ok. Dot has turn into the primary rap artist ever to win a Pulitzer Prize in music for his most up-to-date album DAMN.
Much more spectacular, DAMN is the primary album in Pulitzer historical past to take residence the prize that wasn’t a chunk of classical music or jazz. In line with the Related Press, “The Pulitzer board on Monday referred to as the album a piece that captures the complexity of African-American life.”
Kendrick has already racked up an entire trophy room’s value of achievements all through his comparatively transient profession, although he’s been missed by a few of the most esteemed award-bestowing organizations on the planet. The Grammy’s have repeatedly taken warmth for the methods through which they’ve missed Ok Dot by the years, first by giving Macklemore the highest rap prize over his album Good Child, M.A.A.D. Metropolis just a few years again, after which once more in 2018 by bestowing the highest honors of the night time to Bruno Mars’ 24Ok Magic. With the Pulitzer win, Lamar has one of the best argument but for the elevated irrelevance of that individual group.
