Jay-Z Reveals Name of Upcoming Lyrics Book
Many Jay-Z fans were excited to read amongst news headlines last week that the top notch MC might be working out a deal to release a series of books. Well, it looks like his fans can now rejoice because Hova has confirmed the news of his upcoming literary projects.
In an interview with Atlanta radio station V-103, Jay revealed that he plans to release three books with one profiling his lyrics to be published first.
"Well it's not done, the other two books, it hasn't kicked in yet. I haven't signed that deal", he said in regards to the rumored three book deal.
"I've done the deal to do a book and the name of it is called 'Decoded.' It's called Decoded because I'm going to decode all the lyrics from my records. I'm gonna pick the select ones, all the double entendres and things that people may have missed or may have gotten but want confirmation on it. That's what the book is about."
A report surfaced last week in The New York Observer that Jay-Z's literary agent approached the editors at Spiegel & Garu with the concept of doing the three-book cluster that would include a traditional memoir, a business book and one profiling his lyrics, which is what the company decided to go with.
The release of 'Decoded' will be Jay-Z's first published book. In 2003, he teamed up with MTV to pen the 'Black Book' on conjunction with his 'Black' album. The book never hit shelves due to rumored privacy issues.
A release date for 'Decoded' has yet to been announced.
