He should've won it for Youngest Head Nigga in Charge.
He should've won it for Don't Wanna Know by Maroon 5 ft. Kendrick Lamar.
i think it's pretty cool that the pulitzer went to something completely outside of what it normally does, that's really important

people on sputnikmusic are very cynical
This guys life is far superior to mine
Even though someone said it, this is an award for TPAB or maybe even GKMC because DAMN. ain't that great and is easily his worst album. I feel like if any musician should've won a Pulitzer it should be Father John Misty for Pure Comedy because that album is a great examination and satirical look on the world, even though I'm not a massive fan of the album. Just my two cents.
Definitely a political move. TPAB is his only work eligible (so far).
Pitchfork's article on this explained how the judges ended up choosing Damn. Pretty fucking hilarious lol. But I guess if any artist currently working in popular music deserves it, it's kendrick. Not gonna hate, good for him
" I don’t know specifically what the piece was, but in this case they were considering a piece of music they felt had hip-hop influences and said, “Well if we’re considering a piece of music that has hip-hop influences, why aren’t we considering hip-hop?” And someone said, “That’s exactly what we should do.” And then someone said, “We should be considering Kendrick Lamar” and the group said “absolutely.” So then, right then, they decided to listen to the entire album and decided “This is it.” "
I don't know how anyone can take this award seriously anymore.
What a joke bahah
