Lauryn Hill’s “The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill” To Be Added To Library Of Congress

Lauryn Hill’s “The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill” dubbed “a work of honesty” by the Library of Congress.

Nearly two decades after its release, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill will soon be entered into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. The registry features recordings that boast cultural, artistic, and historical significance.

According to Variety.comLauryn Hill’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 a new addition to the registry.

XXLMag.com reports that the Library of Congress described The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill as “a work of honesty” that “effortlessly fuses soul, rhythm and blues, rap and reggae,” in its explanation of why the album was selected.

“Lauryn Hill’s debut solo record, following the breakup of the Fugees, is a work of honesty in which Hill explores her feelings on topics that included the deep wonder of pregnancy, the pitfalls of modern relationships and the experience of the sacred,” the explanation read, according to XXLMag.com. “The album effortlessly fuses soul, rhythm and blues, rap and reggae. Hill’s vocal range, smooth clear highs and vibrato are stunning. The rapping is rhythmically compelling while always retaining, and frequently exploiting, the natural cadences of conversational speech. Standout guest performances include Carlos Santana’s soulful acoustic guitar solo on ‘Zion,’ and duets with Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo on ‘I Used to Love Him’ and ‘Nothing Even Matters,’ respectively.”

Other Hip Hop artists who have had their music added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry include Sugar Hill GangDe La Soul, and Tupac Shakur.
