Billboard has reported that following Kendrick Lamar’s Pulitzer Prize win for his album, DAMN., the album saw a 236 percent spike on the charts. According to Rap-Up, the week after the Pulitzer announcement, DAMN. sold 11,000 copies. The week prior, K-Dot sold 1,000 units. The album has sold 1.1 million copies since its release last April.  That is amazing.


The nominations for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards are here and as expected, the artists whose music dominates the radio airwaves are the ones who lead with the most nominations—meaning Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Cardi B.are in the lead. Earlier, the nominees for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards were announced by Khalid and Bebe Rexha live on NBC’s Today. […]

For his third studio album, Kendrick Lamar is focusing on a higher calling.

The Grammy Awards, and pretty much any other “mainstream” (read white dominated) music awards show, tends to give black artists ghettoized accolades--“urban” “R&B” and “hip-hop” awards but never the “pop” awards – “Video of the Year” “Song of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” etc.

As the time has come again for us to honor those whose work in the fields of television, music, literature, film and social justice shone so brightly via the 48th Annual NAACP Image Awards, we’d like to take a moment to express our gratitude for those who made a tough year so much easier to survive.
