Music by rapper Jay-Z are among the latest recordings to be added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, to be preserved for future generations.
“The Blueprint” is only the 10th hip-hop recording chosen for the registry, and the first ever inducted from this century.
Jay-Z made history when his classic album The Blueprint was inducted into the National Recording Registry this week: It’s the first recording released in the 21st century to receive that honor. The album was released in 2001.
