Yesterday (5/30) in NYC TDE’s prolific MC Kendrick Lamar attended a luncheon at Columbia University to accept his Pulitzer Prize. The day before Pulitzer Kenny put on an amazing show at a sold-out Madison Square Garden as a part of TDE’s “The Championship” tour. While the event honored the winners of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize, Lamar was the clear star of the day, as many attendees stopped to take selfies and congratulate the Grammy Award-winning artist. “It’s an honor,” said Lamar, who kept his acceptance speech short. “Been writing my whole life, so to get this type of recognition is beautiful.”

The Pulitzer board announced Kendrick Lamar as a winner of the the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Music for last year’s stellar album DAMN.  The board previously called the project a “virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African American life.”
