17 April 2018

The 30-year-old rapper received the award for his album Damn.

Reuters' first Pulitzer, for breaking news photography, came in 2008 for Adrees Latif's photo of a Japanese videographer fatally wounded during a street demonstration in Myanmar. He described the prize as an "incredible honor" and said he was proud of the work "we all did at The Daily Progress".

You feel they want to support you and want to help you to score goals. I don't care about the rest. "Thirty one years ago since Ian Rush".

The Pulitzer board on Monday hailed "DAMN.", which was released in April 2017, as "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life".

A string of stories in the two newspapers shined light on connections between Russian officials and Mr Trump's 2016 campaign.

Lamar has been praised and lauded for his deep lyrical content, remarkable live performances, and his profound mix of hip-hop, spoken word, jazz, soul, funk, poetry and African sounds.

"The series of investigations from the Philippines demonstrated how police in the president's "drug war" have killed with impunity and consistently been shielded from prosecution", Adler said.

At this time, investigators from multiple agencies are interviewing people and searching areas of the campus around Windham Hall. He was described in the Facebook post "as a light-skinned male wearing dark trousers and a dark, Puma hooded sweatshirt".

Dana Canedy, the Pulitzer administrator, said their work "exposed powerful and wealthy sexual predators, including allegations against one of Hollywood's most influential producers, bringing them to account for long-suppressed claims of coercion, brutality and victim silencing thus spurring a worldwide reckoning about sexual abuse of women".

The stories' impact spread beyond Weinstein to allegations against other powerful men in entertainment, politics and elsewhere, toppling such figures as "Today" show host Matt Lauer, actor Kevin Spacey, newsman Charlie Rose and Sen.

The recognition comes on the heels of growing acceptance of hip-hop from reigning cultural institutions over the past year, including LL Cool J becoming the first hip-hop artist to be acknowledged by the Kennedy Center Honors and Jay-Z the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (as well as giving an in-depth interview to the executive editor of The New York Times).

The winners are being revealed Monday afternoon at Columbia University.
