Kendrick Lamar has officially accepted his Pulitzer Prize for his album, DAMN. The news of Lamar receiving the award was announced back in April and marks the first time a non-jazz or classical project has received the award. The Pulitzer Prize Board expressed that the project is a “virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life.”

The album’s sales have increased over 200% following the announcement and its digital song sales were up 11,000 within the week which ended on April 19. On-demand streams for Lamar’s recent project also jumped from 21.6 to 26.9 million within the same time frame.

Take a look below to see Kung Fu Kenny receive his prestigious award.
