As reported by CBS News, the Hip-Hop icon, along with Cyndi Lauper, Cab Calloway, and more will have his The Blueprint album added to the Library of Congress. With the body of work “have been recognized as vital to our nation’s audio legacy,” this for sure would come as a huge honor for any artist. With The Blueprint album being nearly 18 years old, the album continues to connect with listeners all these years later.
