Times, New Yorker win Pulitzer for Weinstein scandal

Kendrick Lamar won a Pulitzer for 'DAMN.' and fans are shook

Rapper Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN." has won the 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 Pulitzer board on Monday called the album a work that captures the complexity of African-American life.

DAMN. was nominated for multiple Grammys, and took home the Grammy for Best Rap Album.

A string of stories in The Times and The Washington Post shined a light on Russian interference in the presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign and transition - ties now under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Since the Times and New Yorker articles last October, more than 100 women have publicly accused the producer of misconduct ranging from sexual harassment to rape, sparking the #MeToo movement that has gone global.

This is the 102nd year of the contest, established by newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer.

The winners are being revealed Monday afternoon at Columbia University.

The 2017 Pulitzer Prize for music went to "Angel's Bone", an opera by composer Du Yun. There are 14 categories for reporting, photography, criticism and commentary.
