Kendrick Lamar told Vanity Fair why he kicked a white fan offstage for rapping the N-word “Let me put it to you in its simplest form.
I’ve been on this earth for 30 years, and there’s been so many things a Caucasian person said I couldn’t do. Get good credit.
Buy a house in an urban city… So if I say this is my word, let me have this one word, please let me have that word.” Lamar also expressed his shock over winning a Pulitzer Prize in April “It was one of those things I heard about in school but I never thought I’d be a part of it,” he said.
“I thought, to be recognized in an academic world … whoa, this thing really can take me above and beyond.
It’s one of those things that should have happened with hip hop a long time ago.” It was the first non-jazz or classical work to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music.
