Jay-Z’s literary venture, Decoded, is set to hit book stores November 16th. The cover, (which also doubles as Hov’s profile pic on Twitter) is an image Andy Warhol’s 1984 “Rorschach” paintings. Inside, the book will feature illustrations and decode 36 of Jigga’s songs. Accompanying the hardcover edition, Random House plans to release Decoded as an eBook and iPhone/iPad application. Below is an excerpt from Jay on the project.

“When I first started working on this book, I told my editor that I wanted it to do three important things. The first was to make the case that hip-hop lyrics—not just my lyrics, but those of every great MC—are poetry if you look at them closely enough. The second was I wanted the book to tell a little bit of the story of my generation, to show the context for the choices we made at a violent and chaotic crossroads in recent history. And the third piece was that I wanted the book to show how hip-hop created a way to take a very specific and powerful experience and turn it into a story that everyone in the world could feel and relate to.”

i dont need a book to understand shawns' rhymes

music speak for itself


nice choice of cover art tho

if he's tryna compare his music to a Warhol Rorschach painting he must be trying to say


there is no right or wrong interpretation to his lyrics...


so again wtf we need a book Jay??

The cover is so ARTISTIC! There must be some kind of artistic view that only those who have that Artistic vision will see!


Yeah, it sucks.

So technically, when the book is the normal way up, it looks like an angel is falling.

Thats bulls**t! Its like no matter what this man does... you always see people run and try to cover it up like it was nuthin. f**k that... I never been a heater or nothin... but when u see wrong... its wrong, period! People act like Jay-z can do no wrong at all. This man does not pay bills in your house or put money in your pockets. I see something wrong with this... smh.
I'm not gonna entertain the thoughts and conversation of something THAT EVIL on my books, etc. just because people keep talkin about it. If I'm a man of God... I dont care how much people may talk... I want anything satanic-like as far away from me as possible.
