Jay-Z is gearing up to finally release his long-awaited memoir.

According to Rolling Stone, the book will be called Decoded and is due out on November 16 of this year. Hov worked with Dream Hampton to create the 336-page tome, which will be a combination of lyrics, memoir, and interviews with family and friends. The book was completed a few years back, but Jay decided to hold off on releasing it until now.

In related news, Jay is currently getting ready to hit the stage with fellow rap heavyweight Eminem. The two will be coming to Hov's native New York City for two shows and then follow in Em's hometown of Detroit for two more dates in early September. —Adam Fleischer
