[NEWS] Tupac Shakur's 'Dear Mama' Entered Into U.S. Library Of Congress For Preservation

A week after the day in which Tupac Shakur would have celebrated his 39th birthday, the news of his song "Dear Mama" being added to the U.S. Library of Congress' National Recording Registry is announced.

Tupac's "Dear Mama" has been considered to be "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."

In it's citation, the NRPB called "Dear Mama" a "moving and eloquent homage to both the murdered rapper's own mother and all mothers struggling to maintain a family in the face of addiction, poverty and societal indifference."

This is such big news I don't even know how to contain myself!

Goes to show that good music with a human connection will transcend beyond the charts long after the creator has passed, and that is a powerful truth...

This isn't the first time one of Tupac's songs were selected because of it's message. Just last year, Pac's song "Changes" was selected by the Vatican for their Myspace playlist.
