"Hip-hop's renaissance man drops a classic. . . . Heartfelt, passionate and slick."-- Kirkus, starred review

    Review quote
    "Compelling . . . provocative, evocative . . . Part autobiography, part lavishly illustrated commentary on the author's own work, "Decoded" gives the reader a harrowing portrait of the rough worlds Jay-Z navigated in his youth, while at the same time deconstructing his lyrics."--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times" "One of a handful of books that just about any hip hop fan should own."--"The New Yorker" "Elegantly designed, incisively written . . . an impressive leap by a man who has never been known for small steps."--"Los Angeles Times" "A riveting exploration of Jay-Z's journey . . . So thoroughly engrossing, it reads like a good piece of cultural journalism."--"The Boston Globe " "Shawn Carter's most honest airing of the experiences he drew on to create the mythic figure of Jay-Z . . . The scenes he recounts along the way are fascinating."--"Entertainment Weekly " "From the Trade Paperback edition."
