Jay-Z’s Book Cover Released

Finally, here’s the image of Jay-Z’s autobiography, Decoded, that is scheduled to be released on November 16th.

“I told my editor that I wanted it to do three important things,” Jay-Z stated. “The first was to make the case that hip-hop lyrics-not just my lyrics, but those of every great MC-are poetry if you look at them closely enough.”

The memoir will include interviews from Jay’s family, friends and the man himself. It’ll also touch on his upbringing in Brooklyn through present day (or at least close to it).

According to Billboard, an image of Andy Warhol’s “Rorschach” on the cover, the fully-illustrated book decodes 36 songs from Jay-Z’s extensive catalog, offering an intimate, first-hand account of the rapper’s most famous raps.

In addition to the hardcover release, Random House will publish “Decoded” as an eBook, as well as an interactive iPhone/iPad application that will include exclusive video and customizable content.
