Last week I picked up Jay-Z's book Decoded from my school's bookstore. I started reading it yesterday, and I must say this book is pretty amazing so far. I have always been a fan of Jay-Z and reading his book puts a lot of things into perspective on how he came to create the lyrics to his songs and what he was feeling at the time. I always felt he was much deeper than what's on the radio, and this book proves it. Not only does this book describes the reasons behind Jay-Z's lyrics but it also gives a first hand account of his life experiences. I thought his story was very entertaining. I can truly say this book was worth picking up!
