Music mogul Diddy is pulling for Kendrick Lamar‘s success. The hip-hop icon has saluted K. Dot on his game-changing Pulitzer Prize win for last year’s DAMN. album.

Puff Daddy went to Instagram last night (April 17) and acknowledged Lamar’s historic achievement.

A Pulitzer Prize executive has provided context behind Lamar landing the game-changing award.

“The time was right,” Dana Canedy, the administrator of the prizes, said in an interview after the winners were announced. “We are very proud of this selection. It means that the jury and the board judging system worked as it’s supposed to — the best work was awarded a Pulitzer Prize.” She added: “It shines a light on hip-hop in a completely different way. This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers.” (New York Times)
