Jay-Z: Decoded - one of the best books I've ever read. So insightful, surprising and intelligently written. A true eye-opener into the origins of hip-hop, controversial politics and the lifestyle and childhood of Jay Z and so many others like him. So inspirational and a definite must read!
Book: Decoded... A quick read but incisively written personal narrative of Jay-Z's life and his music and the cultural underpinning of hip-hop. It gives a compelling look at the rough world of Jay-Z's youth, his journey from a life in the ghetto to a rapper and entrepreneur. A gem of a collection of his songs and deconstructed lyrics revealing the depth of their meaning. Author: Jay-Z
