California rapper Kendrick Lamar on Monday became the first rapper to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. It's one of the most prestigious arts awards in the United States. 30 year old Lamar won the Pulitzer for his 2017 album “DAMN.” He was also the first music winner in the 100-year history of the Pulitzers to come from outside of the world of classical or jazz. Rap officially surpassed rock in 2017 as the biggest music genre in the United States. Lamar’s fusion of jazz, poetry and blues with social themes and love songs has made him one of the most innovative rappers of his generation.
