Maybe not under that name, but there was a Village Voice poll in 1971, the very first one. It was revived in 1974 under the Pazz & Jop title.

Re: DAMN. wins the Pulitzer Prize

Yes, this is a huge deal - not quite as earth-shattering as Dylan being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature a couple of years ago, but considering that nothing even remotely approaching pop music has ever won in this category it's highly significant. (And it's not even for Lamar's best album.)
