Last night at the New York Public Library the MC who became famous for not writing rhymes (even though the late B.I.G was among the first to it) discussed his book of those very verses with Dr. Cornel West. Jay-Z’s book of rhymes, Decoded, is available in stores and online now and the rapper turned CEO sat with one of America’s foremost thinkers to place his words in context.
