Damn, Kendrick Lamar just won at life! Well, specifically speaking, he just won a Pulitzer Prize for his critically-acclaimed album, DAMN. 

The official Pulitzer website describes DAMN. as being worthy of the award for being "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African American life."

Fans wasted no time congratulating Lamar. They commended the historical win, and noted it came before winning an Album of The Year Grammy.

Beyoncé had Coachella renamed after her, Kendrick Lamar won a Pulitzer Prize, & Black Panther has made more money than Titanic.
