Kendrick Lamar is the toast of a Pulitzer Prize event where some of the most influential people in the world are pressing to rub elbows with him.
The pride of Compton was at Pulitzer luncheon Wednesday at Columbia University. He’s being honored in the music category, and Mia Farrow couldn’t wait to get a snapshot with him. Mia’s son, Ronan, is getting Pulitzer’s public service award for blowing the lid off Harvey Weinstein’s history of sexual misconduct.
Kendrick’s arrival was so highly anticipated, the Pulitzer’s administrator welcomed him before he even walked into the building.

Kung Fu Kenny winning the music category was unprecedented. He’s the first non-classical or jazz artist to win the prize since they started awarding them for music in 1943.
So, makes sense everyone wants a piece.
