Ever since it was announced that Jay-Z would be releasing his memoir, Decoded, that would feature explanations for some of the most discussed songs from his decade-plus career, fans have been awaiting to find out which tracks he would choose. Well the speculation has come to a close today as roc4life.com released the selections Hova will be going in-depth about in his upcoming tome. [See below]

As previously reported, Decoded, will hit stores on November 16. One day before he’ll be reading from the 336-page book at the New York Public Library. He currently has a scavenger hunt going on across the globe for fans to find pages from the book, hidden in special locations linked to the rapper’s past.

In addition to Decoded, Jay is currently working on a full-length collaboration album with Kanye West called, Watch the Throne. —Elan Mancini
