A few years back, Jay-Z sat down and co-wrote his autobiography. But he didn't release it. That means Decoded ($19) is about as close as you're going to get. This annotated lyric book finds Shawn Carter highlighting the poetry of his rhymes while explaining the meanings behind them, and in the process allowing just a little bit of his story to leak out. Plus, the cover features a Rorschach print by Andy Warhol, which makes it a coffee table all-star.
