It seems the world has gone ‘bananas’ over Jay-Z’s recently released book Decoded, including the folk over at the New York Public Library.
Jay-Z appeared at the NY Public Library last night (I’m guessing it was his first time actually stepping foot in to the library) for an analyses of his book Decoded, along side Dr. Cornel West and Paul Holdengräber.
Check out the footage below. (Spotted @ Punchbowl Blog)
The NY Public Library organises a night dedicated to this book and intellectuals Dr. Cornel West and Paul Holdengräber sit an “analyse” Jay’s “life story” for two hours in front of attendees which included the legendary Harry Belafonte.
I had no idea that Jay’s rise from being a Marcy Projects waste man to millionaire rapper/business man would spark so much jaw dropping interest. Decoded must be an absolute masterpiece!
As I type it’s probably on track to outsell the Bible.
I think I’ll run out and purchase ten copies as Christmas presents to myself.
