Last year, JAY-Z dropped his six-part docuseries, Time: The Kalief Browder Story, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and later broadcasted on the Spike network in March. Hov served as a producer for the series, which chronicles the haunting story of Browder, who was arrested at 16, and spent three years in an adult prison without a conviction. Following his release in 2015, Browder tragically committed suicide. The documentary explores his story and the major issues surrounding the prison industry.  

The docuseries received critical acclaim, and now Jay has another award to add to the many already in his collection. 

According to Ebony, Time: The Kalief Browder Story was one of the nine documentaries selected for a Peabody Award under the Peabody 30

Peabody describes the Browder documentary as a “powerful miniseries illuminating the greatest flaws of our criminal justice system through the tragic events and death of a young African American who spent three years on Rikers Island without being convicted of a crime.”

In fact, Jay and Bey now have His And Hers Peabodys, as the wig-snatching Coachella headliner received the award for Lemonade last year. 

Following Kendrick Lamar's Pulitzer Prize win, hip-hop notables are taking over these esteemed awards.
