Jay-Z announced that he will be releasing his first book on Tuesday 16th November.

“A collection of lyrics and their meanings that together tell the story of a culture, an art form, a moment in history, and one of the most provocative and successful artists of our time.”

The book is described as:

“Featuring an image of Andy Warhol’s Rorschach on the cover, the beautifully designed, fully-illustrated book decodes 36 songs from JAY-Z’s extensive catalog. By telling the stories behind some of Jay-Z’s most famous and provocative lyrics, Decoded offers an intimate, first-hand account of an artist, his work, and the culture that so powerfully shaped him.”

I’m a Jay-Z stan who also happens to like hip hop lyrics so you know I will be one of the first people to buy this book.
