The same week it celebrates its first birthday, Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. has just won a Pulitzer Prize. It is the first piece of popular music to receive the music award since it was introduced in 1943. The movie producer's attorneys have said he denies any non-consensual sexual contact with anyone. According to The Associated Press, "The Pulitzer board said Monday the album is a "virtuosic song collection" and said it captures 'the modern African American life'".

Lamar has been lauded for his deep lyrical content, politically charged live performances, and his profound mix of hip-hop, spoken word, jazz, soul, funk, poetry and African sounds.

In the arts, prizes are awarded in seven categories, including fiction, drama and music.

The rapper, born in Compton, California, was hand-picked by "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler to curate an album to accompany the ubiquitously successful film, giving Lamar yet again another No. 1 effort and highly praised project.
