Jay-Z Talks Decoded w/ WSJ + Excerpt


You too could cool out poolside at the Delano

The Wall Street Journal posted some excerpts from an interview they had with Jay-Z in his office where he mentions the not-so-coded lyrics to “Big Pimpin'” that were printed at the Decoded party in Miami last night (see pics below.)

WSJ: You’re famous for not writing your lyrics down as you compose them. What changes about them when you see them on the page like this?

Jay-Z: Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not “Big Pimpin.” That’s the exception. It was like, I can’t believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh.

After the jump, check out an excerpt from the book that explains the lyrics to the song “American Dreamin’.”
