Tupac Shakur's Song "Dear Mama" Honored By Library of Congress

July 9, 2010 2:02 PM | Rap | Comments (0)

Rapper Tupac Shakur continues to live with us with his music years after he passed away. One of his works entitled “Dear Mama” was honored by the Library of Congress and was labeled as “culturally significant”.

Tupac Shakur’s Song joins Bill Cosby's second comedy album and rare battle sounds from World War II are among 25 recordings the Library of Congress recognized.

Tupac Shakur killed in Las Vegas in 1996 and during a feud with rival rappers that really should not have happened at all. He was a major music figure.

Shakur's music has reached this high status should be a sign to urban economic development officials that investing in the people who create music in a city can not only help them but make the city incredibly visible.

For cities like Oakland, California, that’s certainly true. It has a rich rap music culture, but this space knows that the Oakland Redevelopment Agency pays no attention to an industry, the music industry, in Oakland that many of its residents are already involved in, one way or another.
