It’s been just one week since Jay-Z released his memoir/lyrical breakdown ‘Decoded,’ and it looks like another piece of Jay will hit bookshelves in 2011. Publishing house Penguin Group has announced that they’ll be releasing a Jay-Z bio in March. The biography, aptly titled ‘Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went From Street Corner to Corner Office’ will feature interviews from past collaborators and business partners Damon Dash, DJ Clark Kent and Questlove, to name a few.

As described in the title, ‘Empire State of Mind,’ which was penned by Forbes magazine staffer Zack O’Malley Greenburg, will focus on Jay-Z’s rise to fame as a rapper from the Marcy housing projects in Brooklyn to a mainstay on the majority of Forbes’ top earners lists. In recent news, the hip-hop mogul’s four-night stint with Eminem at Comerica Park on Sept. 2 and 3 and Sept. 13 and 14 at Yankee Stadium was listed among the highest grossing tours of 2010, bringing in close to $7 million.

‘Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went From Street Corner to Corner Office’ is due in stores and online on March 17, 2011. ‘Decoded’ is available now.
