THE JAY-Z WORSHIP CONTINUES – NY PUBLIC LIBRARY HOSTS DECODED EVENT

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)

Interesting….

*rolls eyes*

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.

  1. I can’t peep the vid at work, but what is this supposed to be. An autobiography? If so haven’t we heard his story already through his music. I like Jay, but I’m not buying into this. I’m just not. Don’t even get started on Dr. Cornell West and the whole ANALYSIS of this book. You’d think it was the Davinci Code the way they’re carrying on.

  2. I think Jay-z’s ‘newer’ fans,(Middle Class America) those that don’t know what a Marcy is lol but understand a project is where Black folks live, yes them folks, they will enjoy a book like this, they will get an inside look at the man and understand where he is coming from, to be honest, if it wasn’t for him being Darth vaders fav’ Uncle I might even of got a copy me-self, just to see if there are little bits of his history i don’t know or is presented with more clarity (less lies and extra-ness lol) but with Jigga Mon, I have just simply lost interest, like many lol.
