Jay-Z Prepares To Release New Book “Decoded”

By  |  3 Comments

Jay-Z has finally revealed the cover to his anticipated book, ‘Decoded.’ The image used for the cover is part of Andy Warhol’s 1984 “Rorschach” paintings. Within the book, you’ll find amazing illustrations along with 36 of Jay-Z’s hit songs decoded. The book will hit stores on November 16th. The publishing company Random House will also release the book to be eBook, and iPhone/iPad application friendly.

Excerpt from “Decoded:”

“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. Jay-Z”

    One other issue issue is that video games are usually serious naturally with the major focus on learning rather than leisure. Although, there’s an entertainment aspect to keep the kids engaged, each one game is normally designed to develop a specific expertise or course, such as math or research. Thanks for your posting.
