Kendrick Lamar Wins Pulitzer Prize for Music

quote [ Kendrick Lamar has won the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his album, DAMN., becoming the first non-classical or jazz artist to receive the honor. The Pulitzer board announced the selection on Monday, calling the 2017 LP "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African American life." ]

I did not see this coming.

A lot of this guy's material is over my head/beyond my experience, but I sure like the way he delivers it.

Hmm. I'm old enough/out of touch enough, that I have heard the guy's name, but I wouldn't recognize his face or his music. I'm guessing that the google can play it for me. Doing so is probably my civid duty.

I do know that Drake is the guy with the painted on beard, though. Perhaps I should listen to some of his music, too.
