Hip-Hop Mogul Jay-Z has decided to give fans a preview of his upcoming book Decoded this fall at public library in New York.

According to the Associated Press, Jay-Z will be featured at the Celeste Bartos auditorium at the library’s main branch on 5th Avenue to discuss his memoir on Nov. 15.

Although many have dubbed the book as a memoir or an autobiography, author Dream Hampton decided to clarify things viaTwitter:

“Collaborated with Jay-Z on Decoded, in stores this November. Not an autobio, book about his process, his lyrics, stories behind them.”


As previously reported Hampton collaborated with Jay-Z on the project that according to Rolling Stone, mixes first-person memoirs with detailed discussions of his most famous and provocative lyrics.

The script which includes interviews with Jay, his family and friends, will hoister 336 pages discussing on  Jay-Z’s  early life in Brooklyn’s Marcy Projects, his stint as a drug dealer as well as his Hip-Hop success.

Decoded will also include illustrations and detailed explanations of many of his lyrics.

Decoded is scheduled to hit book stored on November 16.
