Major! Jay-Z’s ‘The Blueprint’ To Be Archived In US Library Of Congress

Published: Wednesday 20th Mar 2019 by Sam

Jay-Z is easily one of modern music’s most revered names and that status is set to be garnished with another layer of legendary.

For, the US Library Of Congress has announced that it’ll be archiving one of the rapper’s most celebrated albums.

Details below…

The mogul’s 2001 LP ‘The Blueprint’ leads the list of projects set to formally preserved by the National Recording Registry; the honor sees such releases officially bestowed with recognition of being of cultural significance.

Also receiving the esteemed status – which is billed  as “reflect(ing) our past, present, and future” – is Nina Simone’s ‘Mississippi Goddam,’ Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Superfly,’ Cyndi Lauper’s ‘She’s So Unusual,’ and Earth, Wind & Fire’s ‘September.’

One of the most notable entries in the contemporary climate is Lauryn Hill‘s ‘Miseducation’ – which was inducted in 2015.

Suffice to say, Jay is in great company!

The news comes on the heels of GLAAD’s announcement that Jay and wife Beyonce will be recognised for their LGBTQ advocacy. It also comes in the wake of confirmation that the Roc Nation maestro will be performing at the historic Woodstock 50.

      Nicki stays on your mind huh. Its a wonder you get any sleep at night since you’re so bothered & pressed over her, bringing her up in a post that has nothing to do with her at all. Sounds like a low key fan to me lol.

        You triggeredT, did? Lizzo, I mean Nicki’s pinkprint thought it was going to be like Jays Blueprint. I guess Lizzo, I mean Nicki’s Pinkprint and Gaga’s Artpop go down as the most ego deflating albums of all time ???? they thought they’d have so much impact ????

      @Jazzy u really looking like soneone who is really pressed by Nicki or a real undercover Barbz. Wtf does Nicki have to with this. How sad for you.

    another undeserved accolade for Jay.
    I’m not understanding why the industry and associated entities are always so far up his ugly a*s. WHY??

    • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 20, 2019

      Just for the simple fact this album includes “the takeover” (one of the biggest rap battle records in history), it deserves this award. This album is THE BLUEPRINT. A hip hop bible.

    • Whoops ??‍♀️??? March 20, 2019

      Chile, huh? It’s one thing to dislike someone, but it’s another to play dumb. Jay Z is a hip hop legend who helped define an entire genre and The Blueprint is one of the most influential hip hop albums ever and you will deal.

        Whoops girrrl that’s just Miss Brentasia Christophina, she always hates on pretty much everyone. She’s not capable of giving much more than a back handed compliment.
