Jay-Z Discusses ‘Decoded’ with The Wall Street Journal


The Wall Street Journal posted a few excerpts from an interview they had with Jay-Z in which he spoke on the not-so-coded lyrics to ‘Big Pimpin’ that were featured at the Decoded party in Miami and will appear in his memoir when it hits stores November 16th:

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. Peep the full interview here: Just Asking: Decoding Jay-Z
