Rapper Kendrick Lamar wins Pulitzer music prize for 'DAMN.'

Kendrick Lamar has won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Music

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 previous most recent victor: Mary Chind for photography in 2010.

The Grammy-winner doubled down on politics on "LUST", recounting the feeling of watching the news in the hopes that Donald Trump had not won the election. The project used virtual reality, aerial video, 360-degree video, documentary video, photos, podcasts and interactive maps - as well as more than a dozen stories - to examine and explain President Trump's complicated border wall proposal that spans 2,000 miles. There are 14 categories for reporting, photography, criticism and commentary.

The breaking news photography award went to Ryan Kelly of The Daily Progress of Charlottesville, Virginia, who captured the moment a auto plowed into counter-protesters demonstrating against a white nationalist rally in the Virginia college town.

The USA TODAY NETWORK won three Pulitzer prizes Monday for in-depth coverage of the border wall between the US and Mexico, the heroin epidemic and editorial writing in health care. The auto killed one of the counter-demonstrators, Heather Heyer.
