2pac song goes to Library of Congress; Google plots music service
By Ally Schweitzer
- Tupac Shakur is one of the American musicians whose work will be preserved in the Library of Congress. The rapper's 1994 song "Dear Mama," about a mother struggling with poverty and addiction, was selected for the 2009 National Recording Registry for its cultural significance, alongside works by Willie Nelson, Little Richard, Patti Smith and R.E.M.. Tupac is the third rapper to be included, following Grandmaster Flash and Public Enemy.
- Because Google didn't already play an outsize role in your life: The web company is plotting a music service that will give iTunes a run for its money. What's next, Google? Google Food? Google Oxygen?
