The 30-year-old Kendrick Lamar made history when he won the prize for music for 'DAMN.,' his raw and powerful Grammy-winning rap album, described by the Board as 'a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life.'
