On Monday, the prestigious Pulitzer Prize was awarded to rapper Kendrick Lamar for his studio album DAMN.
It’s the first time the music category has recognized a body of work that is not from the jazz or classical genre.
And some people pointed out that Lamar’s Pulitzer win comes before a Grammy win for Album of the Year.
People reacted emotionally and immediately, saying it’s single-handedly raised the limits for dreaming and ambitions.
CONGRATS, PULITZER PRIZE WINNER KUNG FU KENNY.
