Stream Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN, Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize In Music

Yesterday, Kendrick Lamar won the Pulitzer Prize in Music for his 2017 album, DAMN, a "virtuosic song collection," writes the Pulitzer board, "unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life." This is the first time (since its inception in 1943) that the prize has gone, notes NPR, "to an artist outside of the classical or jazz community." Other recipients have included Aaron Copland, Wynton Marsalis, and Ornette Coleman. You can stream DAMN, which comes with a Parental Advisory warning, on Spotify or right below.
