Nearly two decades after its release, Lauryn Hill’s 1998 classic The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill is set to enter the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, which features recordings that boast cultural, artistic, and historical significance.
According to Variety, the rap legend’s solo debut will join the likes of The Righteous Brothers’ 1964 single “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” and Sly And The Family Stone’s Stand! album, as the latest addition to the registry.
The Library of Congress describes The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill as “a work of honesty” that “effortlessly fuses soul, rhythm and blues, rap and reggae.”
Other hip-hop artists, who have had their music added to the National Recording Registry, include Sugar Hill Gang, De La Soul, and Tupac Shakur.
