Updated with 3 new songs, this is the intimate, first-person chronicle of the life and work of Jay-Z, born Shawn Carter in Brooklyn's notorious Marcy Projects, now known to many as the greatest rapper alive.
Told through lyrics, images and personal narrative, Decoded shares the story of Jay-Z's life through the 10 codes that define him, giving an unparalleled insight into his background, influences and the artistic process that shapes his work. Each chapter features a highly personal narrative section followed by a visually captivating selection of his most famous and provocative lyrics underlining the chapter's themes, along with Jay-Z's own 'decoding' of each lyric, uncovering the wordplay and stories behind the song.
This is a brilliant insight into the art and poetry of hip-hop, as well as the life of one of the genre's greatest artists.
This man is surely the greatest rapper alive!!
where's the new material??
This is a brilliant book but have to rate one star as its the original which I already have and not the enhanced version as advertised and it's cost me a tenner to find that out
A must read for anyone who enjoys hip hop, I couldn't put it down. Wish there was a second!!
