Kendrick Lamar is the first rapper to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. He won for his album "DAMN". The 30-year-old songwriter rapped about being black in the USA. His songs became well known after police shootings of black people. Pulitzer said his album was a masterly song collection about "the modern African-American life".

The Pulitzer Prize for music started in 1943. Kendrick Lamar is the best selling musician to win it. Classical musicians usually win. Pulitzer said the prize went to "the best work". They said the album "shines a [new] light on hip-hop." Sky News said Lamar won for his "deep" lyrics and his mix of different musical styles.
