If [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] is going to do it, he’s going to do it right – and big. Like, international scavenger hunt big.
[lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm]‘s new book, Decoded, will be released in November, but it’s already appearing, page by page, in different areas of New York, Los Angeles, Miami and even London.
Hova fans can check out Bing.com/JayZ and look for clues on the interactive map as to where each page is hiding.
The book itself is filled with stories behind some of [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm]‘s most favorite lines, sort of an autobiography through his art rather than just a retelling of the who-what-where of his life. In this trailer for the book, for instance, [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] lets us in on the inspiration behind the verse for “Most Kingz.”
The book hits stores November 16th.
If hip-hop is modern-day poetry, does that make [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] Poet Laureate?
