Rapper Kendrick Lamar takes home Pulitzer Prize for music

Pulitzer Prize

The winners of the Pulitzer Prizes in journalism and the arts were announced Monday at New York's Columbia University.

Not only is it an achievement for Lamar to have won the Pulitzer in music but also for having done so outside the traditional hallowed categories of the award.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN." has won the Pulitzer Prize for music.

The Pulitzer board rarely awards mainstream music, past year giving the prize to the experimental opera composer Du Yun. "This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers", said Dana Canedy, the administrator of the prizes.

Lamar won five Grammy awards for Damn in January - but lost the coveted album of the year prize to Bruno Mars.

"DAMN.", which reached number one on the United States albums chart, moves forward the conversation about race that Lamar started on his previous album, "To Pimp a Butterfly", which infused jazz and spoken word and gave voice to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Washington Post also won the investigative reporting prize for revealing decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct against Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.

The New York Times and The New Yorker shared the prestigious Public Service award for their "explosive and impactful" investigations into the actions of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Andie Dominick of The Des Moines Register for editorials on damaging consequences of the state's privatization of Medicaid.

Finalists for the Pulitzer Prize in music were Michael Gilbertson's "Quartet", which debuted last February at Carnegie Hall, and Ted Hearne's "Sound from the Bench", a 35-minute cantata released last March.

The Pulitzer board called the album a work that captures the complexity of African-American life.
