In rap milestone, Kendrick Lamar wins Pulitzer for music

Pulitzer Prize for Public Service honors excellence in sexual harassment reporting. Here are resources for other journalists covering this story.

Lamar has already received many accolades for the 2017 album, including a Grammy for Best Rap Album.

"A virtuosic song collection", the Pulitzer board writes of DAMN.

The Washington Post also won the investigative reporting prize for revealing decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct against Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama - a series of articles that also included the revelation of how staff members uncovered an attempt by Project Veritas to discredit the newspaper's reporting on the Senate race.

But Lamar's win signals a shift in the Pulitzer Prize Board's purview to extend beyond classical music-and is much-deserved recognition for an iconic album.

Finalists for the Pulitzer Prize in music were Michael Gilbertson's Quartet, which debuted in 2017 at Carnegie Hall, and Ted Hearne's Sound from the Bench, a 35-minute cantata.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar's "Damn." won the Pulitzer Prize for music. On Monday, Billboard spoke with Pulitzer Prize administrator Dana Canedy, a former senior editor for the New York Times and fellow victor, to discuss the process which led to Kendrick's unexpected victory.

Public Service: jointly awarded to The New York Times, for reporting led by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, and The New Yorker, for reporting by Ronan Farrow.

California limits National Guard's border mission, risking clash with Trump
Apparently, to avoid outright rejection of Trump's authority, Brown sought to finesse California's response. Brown defiantly declared his troops "will not be used to enforce federal immigration laws".

At the 2018 Grammy Awards earlier in January, DAMN had picked up an award for Best Rap Album, while his track 'HUMBLE.' won the awards for Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance and Best Music Video.

Pulitzers are the most prestigious honour in American journalism.

The Pulitzer Prize, awarded for achievements in newspaper, magazine, online journalism, literature and musical composition in the United States was established in 1917 by provisions in the will of American Joseph Pulitzer who had made his fortune as a newspaper published.

At time of writing, Lamar has not addressed his victory on social media.

The administrator of the prizes said "The time was right".

The Arizona Republic and the USA Today Network took the explanatory reporting prize for their reporting on U.S. President Donald Trump's proposed border wall.

Which is a roundabout way of saying it's a bloody work of art.
