You will have never come across a book quite like Decoded ($28), simply because it is a rarity in that it is a book like no other. This is a collection of lyrics and the meanings behind them that have combined to tell the tale of a culture. Hip Hop is an art form, if you will a moment in history, and this is told to us by one o the most successful and provocative performers of our time; Jay-Z. This book and its author are very alike in that they are both many things at the same time. At the core of Decoded is the story of a man born into a housing project in Brooklyn, dealt drugs in Trenton during his teen years and is now a many millions look up to. An extraordinary book you won’t be able to put down.
