Jay-Z’s ‘Blueprint’ Album Added To The National Registry

Jay-Z made history with his career defining album, Blueprint.

Hov’s 2001 album has been added to the National Registry. The National Recording Registry is a library of recordings deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States,” and was created in 2000 by the National Recording Preservation Act. 

Jay-Z, Cyndi Lauper and a Robert F. Kennedy speech are among 25 recordings being inducted to the National Recording Registry.

The registry is adding Kennedy’s recorded speech after Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1968 assassination — two months before Kennedy was killed.

Curtis Mayfield’s “Superfly,” Lauper’s “She’s So Unusual” and Jay-Z’s “Blueprint” album are being added.
