Jay-Z to Give Talk at New York Public Library

Jay-Z has never been one to drop a music project without the proper promotion. Now, he’s proving that the same will be true for his memoir.

Hov will be giving a talk at the New York Public Library on November 15 to discuss his forthcoming memoir, Decoded. As previously reported, the Brooklyn native will be releasing a 336-page book which combines lyrics, interviews with loved ones, and memoir. Although it has been in the works for some time, the tome will not come out until November 16, the day after Jay gives his talk.

In related news Jigga Man will be heading to Australia and New Zealand for concert dates alongside U2 just weeks after the release of Decoded. —Adam Fleischer

          What blows my mind is that I can see the IP address of the people posting on here, and there are some that have the same address but not that many, meaning that yes there are a LOT of people posting like that on here and responding to each other legit. Amazing I know. Back to lurking I go….

  • cbilly

    ’3 3 6′ page book. thats so mason’ish’ of you, hov

  • Sha

    Makes sense to me. Although instead of gracing the library with your presence to discuss your book, how about BUILDING a few libraries and give your book away for free to everyone from Marcy!

    • ahS

      faggot nigga hahahaha :]

    • Malik

      There are already plenty of libraries across New York, what NYL need is more people in them checking out books. I know there are couple out here in Queens that may be shutting down because there isn’t enough visitation to “justify” keeping the library open.

  • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

    HATE, HATE & MORE HATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IT’S SO EASY TO HATE ON SOME ONE WHOSE ACCOMPOLISHING BIG THINGS. THAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH US IN THE BLACK/AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY. WHY DON’T YOU HATER’S GET OFF YOUR LAZY ASSES & GO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE INSTEAD OF TAKING THE EASY WAY OUT & TAKING SHOTS AT SOMEONE WHOSE PUT IN SOME WORK TO DO GREAT THINGS. I’M SO SICK OF THE NEWEST HATER’S LAME EXCUSE THAT EVERY BLACK PERSON THAT’S SUCCESSFUL IS PART OF THE ILLUMINATI. IF THAT’S TRUE THEN I GUESS THERE’S NO NEED FOR THE REST OF US WHO ARE AT WORK TRYING TO BE SUCCESSFUL TO WORK HARD BECAUSE IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN UNLESS WE JOIN UP WITH THE SECRET SOCIETY. GIVE ME A BREAK, JUST ADMIT YOU’D RATHER SIT ON YOUR ASS AT A COMPUTER & HATE ON PEOPLE WHO ARE ENJOYING THEIR ACHEIVEMENT’S FROM THE WORK THEY PUT IN.

    PEACE & GET MONEY!!!
    MOGUL $$$ GAME ’10!!

    You guys are mad because he wrote a book?

  • Lil Bit

    I’m with those of you that commented on the haters……..Why? I really don’t understand why so much anger over Jay Z writing a book.

    • Moving Sideways

      They’re mad because they’re barely literate. If shit gets longer than a 140-character tweet or a 200-word blog post they get confused, forgot how it began and then think it was an Illuminati plot to brainwash them.

    • DJ Khaled

    • I can see the level of ignorance

      Maybe you should go to the library.read,learn, grow a brain.all this nonsense about “this shit ain’t hood”. read your fucking black history you retarded shit…..

      before we came to this country
      We were kings and queens, never porch monkeys
      There was empires in Africa called Kush
      Timbuktu, where every race came to get books
      To learn from black teachers who taught Greeks and Romans
      Asian, Arabs………….NAS

    Real talk…

    I’m actually with the “haters” on this one.

    It better not be THE library on 42nd & 5th Avenue.

    Hold court on the handball court on Nostrand Ave and Myrtle, in Marcy PJ’s.

    Or do it at the broken down library on Bushwick Ave & DeKalb Avenue, in Brooklyn. Where the heads are REALLY at.

    • king a da trill

      go away.
