This review is from: Decoded (Paperback)
The book was truly excellent; while it seemed like an autobiography, it wasn't. The book offers small stories that occured during Jay-Z's lifetime and how this is reflected onto lyrical content of his songs. It has been thoroughly interesting because he truly 'decodes' his lyrics and revealing the into depth meaning.
I am a Jay-Z fan, but after reading this, it has left me wanting to know more about him. I love how open and honest this book is and would recommend it to anyone, especially to those who have the perception of dismissing rap altogether.
I definitely will be reading it over again, just to ensure I have most of his songs on my iPod in which I can follow the lyrics through!
