Blueprint Album was inducted into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress

Released on September 11, 2011, the same day as the fatal terror attacks in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C., the certified double platinum-selling album is highly regarded as one of the most critically acclaimed hip-hop albums of all time.

Excerpts from a statement from the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress said, “The influence of recorded sound over its nearly 160-year history has been profound and technology has increased its reach and significance exponentially. The Library of Congress and its many collaborators are working to preserve these sounds and moments in time, which reflect our past, present and future.”

“‘The Blueprint’ demonstrates Jay-Z’s range, from battle raps throwing shade on his lyrical adversaries such as Nas and Prodigy of Mob Deep, to triumphant anthems about life at the top, to heartfelt examinations of his personal history,” it added.
