Kendrick Lamar has received the Pulitzer Prize for music.

The 30-year-old rapper's album 'DAMN' earned him recognition at the ceremony as he was given the prestigious honour at Columbia University in New York City on Wednesday.

The 'HUMBLE' rapper's win makes him the first non-classical or jazz artist to scoop the prize.

Although he didn't make a speech, the star accepted the prize on a Facebook Live stream of the event, and briefly said: "It's an honour.

"I've been writing my whole life, so to get this type of recognition... it's beautiful."
