Editorial Reviews

"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
