Another accolade for Hovito.
In recognition of his sixth studio album, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter’s The Blueprint has been added to the National Recording Registry.
To school you to the importance of the commemoration, according to the National Recording Registry, songs and records are archived that are “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States.”
Other Hip Hop songs that have been registered include Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five’s “The Message”, 2Pac’s “Dear Mama” and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect.”
Records by Nina Simone and Curtis Mayfield were also recognized alongside The Blueprint.
