(TheSource.com)—The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill moved many as a master’s work in the modern music world.  To this day it is still regarded as one of the most honest and raw albums that can be found in the hip hop community.  Seventeen years after its Grammy Award winning release, it has been inducted into the Library of Congress.

Each year, the Library of Congress selects 25 pieces to induct into the archives to be forever preserved and protected.  ”Congress understood the importance of protecting America’s aural patrimony when it passed the National Recording Preservation Act 15 years ago,” said the Library’s curator, James H.
