I have a great deal of respect for Jay-Z and his music. I also like the concept of this book, in which he "decodes" his lyrics, unpacking otherwise obscure references and explaining his choice of certain terms. In the final analysis, though, what comes through most strongly is his obvious pride in his own success. But I guess that's hip hop. Still, this is a lot of frontin' that left me wantin'.
