The first book by Jay-Z

Jay-Z Decoded

The first book by Jay-Z aka Shawn Carter sets the scene from his childhood & what it was like growing up on the streets of New York. Jay breaks down the history & meaning of his songs.

Giving meaning to an otherwise perceived face value lyrics, the reader gets taken on a journey of the history of hip hop and how the lyrics came about.

The thought & work that goes into composing many of his songs is like poetry as Jay offers insights & reveals his life work as an artist & business man.

"I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man."
