Hola! If you love J (yes I call him “J”..lol) as much as I do then you will definitely want to pick up his new book DECODED. He sold out Brooklyn Museum where he had an interview with Charlie Rose to discuss exactly what the book is about. Well, what is it about you may ask?? Growing up BK style, lyrics, philanthropy and more…but that is what I think so far as I read snippets here and there. But don’t take just take my word for it, here is an excerpt of what he had to say about his book:
“Decoded is first and foremost, a book of rhymes, which is ironic because I don’t actually write my rhymes–they come to me in my head and I record them. The book is packed with the stories from my life that are the foundation of my lyrics–stories about coming up in the streets of Brooklyn in the 80’s and 90’s, stories about becoming an artist and entrepreneur and discovering worlds that I never dreamed existed when I was a kid. But it always comes back to the rhymes. There’s poetry in hip-hop lyrics–not just mine, but in the work of all the great hip-hop artists, from KRS-One and Rakim to Biggie and Pac to a hundred emcees on a hundred corners all over the world that you’ve never heard of.”
