All we have to say about that is DAMN.

On Monday, Kendrick Lamar was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for music for his most recent album, DAMN. The album is the first-ever hip-hop album to win the prize. He's also the first musician to win the prize that is not a jazz or classical artist.

"It shines a light on hip-hop in a completely different way," said Dana Canedy, the administrator of the Prizes, about DAMN. "This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers."

Farrow said on Twitter that he was "grateful" for everyone that helped him break his stories.
