5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfekt 3. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle-Edition mit Audio/Video|Verifizierter Kauf
Bling-Bling, Frauen, Geld, Gangster-Image. Hip-Hip ist doch nur hohles und sinnloses Gepose. Oder auch nicht: Wer wirklich ein tiefgründiges und fast schon philosophisches Buch sucht, der ist bei Decoded richtig. Jay-Z erklärt seinen Lebenswandel anhand seiner Texte und - als ob das nicht schon spannend und innovativ genug wäre - anhand seiner Lebensumstände. Wenn man sich darauf einlässt, dann kann man sehr gut verstehen, was in einem Menschen vorgeht, der nicht mit der Sahne der Eltern gepudert wurde. Er beschreibt eine Gesellschaftsschicht, die nichts hat - aber alles will. Dabei verliert er nie seine Ideale sondern sucht sich mit seinem außergewöhnlichen Talent einen Weg durch die Unterhaltungsindustrie - und das mit Schwierigkeiten. Zeitgenössisches Buch mit einigen Lebensweisheiten, die auch einem Nicht-Hip-Hop-Fan zum nachdenken anregen werden.

3.0 von 5 Sternen decoded hype 22. Dezember 2011
Von wp
Format:Taschenbuch
Sicher ein Zeitdokument. Aber eher Hausmusik als bewegende Botschaft.

Vielleicht waren meine Erwartungen zu hoch, wg hoher Medienpräsenz, hatte mehr von den Texten erwartet. Manche Fussnoten (Erklärungen von Wortspielen, Hintergrundinfo) schon fast trivial. Die Texte akustisch nicht ganz zu verstehen, bzw nicht analytisch zu betrachten, empfinde ich im Nachhinein als Vorteil.

Der Autor erhebt selbst (wenigstens indirekt) mehrfach den Anspruch Literatur/Poesie zu schaffen. Basquiat taucht auf und erinnert mich daran dass Decoded keine Grenzen sprengt.

Projections into the future - das Angebot an gebrauchten Exemplaren wird's zeigen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Opened my mind 4. Februar 2011
Von Lauren Hidden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I happened to catch an episode of Oprah a few weeks ago when she was in Australia and Jay-Z was a guest on her show. They talked about his book, Decoded, and how it changed the way she thought about Jay-Z and rap in general. A Jay-Z fan, I was intrigued and purchased Decoded for my Kindle.

Decoded was the perfect title and conveys multiple meanings. Jay-Z has the lyrics to many of his songs "decoded". The lyrics are seen in corresponding chapters with an extensive footnote section where he explains why he wrote some of the more cryptic lines. But more than just decoding his song lyrics, Jay-Z decoded many more issues for me: his early life, the drug culture, his business dealings, his philosophies on the music biz, politics, and why rap is so misunderstood by so many.

I came away from this book with a new appreciation for Jay-Z...his frankness and lack of apologies for his thug past, the affect of his father's abandonment, the intricacies of his lyrics, his business-savvy attitude and his apparent understanding of the world around him. But perhaps the biggest thing I came away with is a respect for Jay-Z the man. He's intelligent, articulate, and talented as well as paranoid (self described) and private. Rather than writing raps, he would speak them and transcribe them. In 6th grade, he was reading at a 12th grade level. He has a photographic memory. And whether it was by dealing drugs or having a rap career, Jay-Z strove to be the best at his game.

For people expecting a tell-all memoir, you will be disappointed in the book. Beyonce's name doesn't even appear. There are also many, many pages of song lyrics throughout the book that probably appeal to the most diehard fans but I skipped a lot of them. Decoded is a great read, and a book I expect will expand some people's minds (at least a little).

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'm a hustler's hope, I'm not his pipe dream" 8. Januar 2011
Von Ronak - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Although, I am a Jay-Z fan, I firmly believe that this book, much like the man's music, rings with universal truth in every word that anyone around the world can relate to on many different levels. It can mean a million different things to a million different readers. Doesn't matter whether you are a fan of hip hop or not, you will appreciate his child-like sense of wonder that he approaches his life with. Whether you appreciate his music already or not, you won't be able to see him in the same light. This is a book about life, spirituality, self-discovery, music, poetry, business, craftsmanship, and society.

This well crafted auto-biography in many ways runs parallel to his music in the aspect that it is inspired stream of conscious, contains vivid imagery, and layered metaphors. He speaks about his life, his upbringing, his struggles, his paradigm-shifts, and his music but also dissects dozens of his songs. In this book Jay Z picks his own brain by analyzing his music. Below are excerpts from the book on some of the topics he touched on. I left out the parts where he really goes in and dissects his lyrical content so you can pick up the book and enjoy the journey yourself.

LIFE-

"I love metaphors, and for me hustling is the ultimate metaphor for the basic human struggles: the struggle to survive and resist, the struggle to win and make sense of it all."

"When you step out of school and have to teach yourself about life, you develop a different relationship to information."

Spirituality-

"I don't spend a lot of time on records talking about spiritual ideas in an explicit way, although I think a lot of my music sneaks in those big questions-of good and evil, fate and destiny, suffering and inequality...at the heart of a lot these competing ideas of the afterlife and heaven and hell and thug angels and all that is the idea that if the universe is just, things have to even out eventually, somehow. And sometimes that's a scary thought."

Self-Discovery-

"Competition pushes you to become your best self, and in the end it tells you where you stand. Jordan said the same thing about Larry Bird and Magic"

"I've discovered that there really is such thing as win-win situation. And sometimes, I'm only competing with myself, to be a better artists and businessman. To be a better person with a broader vision"

Music-

"The flow isn't like time, its like life. Its like a heartbeat or the way you breath, it can jump, speed up, slow down, stop, or pound right through like a machine. If the beat is time, flow is what we do with that time, how we live through it. The beat is everywhere, but every life has to find its own flow."

"Knowing how to complicate a simple song without losing its basic appeal is one of the keys to good songwriting"

Poetry-

"This is another place where the art of rap and the art of the hustler meet. Poets and hustlers play with language, because for them simple clarity can mean failure. They bend language, improvise, and invent new ways of speaking truth."

"A poet's mission is to make the words do more work than they normally do, to make them work on more than one level. For instance, a poet makes words work sonically-as sounds, as music....the point of those bar is to bang out a rhythmic idea, not to impress you with the literal meaning of the words"

Business-

"He knew that great product was the ultimate advantage in competition, not how big your office building is or how deep your pockets are or who you know. In the end it came down to having a great product and the hustle to move it, which is something I learned working the block"

"But in business, like they say, you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate. So I mind my business and I don't apologize for it.

Craftsmanship-

"The thing that distinguishes Jordan wasn't just his talent, but his discipline, his laser-like commitment to excellence. That's something I always respect, especially in people who have great natural talents already."

"when we take the most familiar subject in the history of rap-why I'm dope'-and frame it within the sixteen-bar structure of a rap verse, synced to the specific rhythm and feel of the track, more than anything it's a test of creativity and wit"

Society-

"To tell the story of the kid with the gun without telling the story of why he has it is to tell a kind of lie"

"Its like listening to Maya Angelou and ignoring everything until you heard her drop a line about drinking or sleeping with someone's husband and dismissing her as an alcoholic adulterer"

In summation this book should come with a warning label because anyone who picks this book up with an open mind is sure to put it down a different person. You'll also never be able to listen to his music the way you used to as well. This book is an auto biography, a book of poetry, bible, a text book, a reference manual, a blueprint, but most importantly.... A roadmap on becoming `Dope'. And no one like Mr. Carter can say "I'm dope" with as much poetic eloquence.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A read that forces you to "Decode" to really get it 7. September 2011
Von Army O3Guy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I approached Decoded from a "businessman's" perspective to get insight on how and why Jay does what he does. Like his rhymes, his writing takes a moment to digest, and re-read (often over and over again) as I believe he operates strategically to the "tee." I say this that because during his developmental years (from his early teens into his mid to late 20's) he spent his life in an environment where first level thinking would get you killed, or in jail. Someone of Jay's caliber has to think and process multiple levels down as he took on a leadership role even during his time working in capacities that weren't productive to American society. Instead of staying in Brooklyn to sell drugs, he chose to take a pioneers route and explore new territory (which is the fastest way to get killed, or arrested - Jay reflects on this within his writing as well). Thinking about that perspective, you will see how and why he was successful, and many times within the book if you actually take time to read (I'm not saying that you didn't take the time to read, I'm just rambling a bit here) what he's writing, he even repeatedly notes it himself. Someone who chooses to title his book "Decoded" is not an average thinker, nor will a reader totally digest all he has to say in one reading. In a way, I believe Jay wants you to dig deeper into what he's always saying whether written or "spoken" word. Think about it....

He sold drugs, yes, but, from what I took from his writing was that he was always looking at a larger goal. He fully embraced rapping from age 9, so I'm sure he always had a goal of transitioning and using his "past" life to fuel his future. He personified his "hustler" status from day one, and from his many successes and failures (there are more than any would like to think) but it was Jay being real with Jay. Why no one knows much about his personal life? My opinion is that as anyone who is extremely successful, they keep their circles tight which likely keeps them successful. If you pick up any "how to be successful in business, or life" book, they all speak about having "think tanks" (think generalities with this term), thus meaning they keep their circles small.

All said, I am enjoying the book, and Jay offers many, many "gems" which show why and how he is where he is today. Additionally, if anyone is foolish to think this will be Jay's only book, I'll place all bets and say that within 5 years he will write a "business" book for all to gobble up, and likely delve deeper into his thinking during his drug dealing years, and how it ties into his latter thinking, and even influences his decisions today.

Jay - Z's book will force you to look at him how he views himself, as a hustler, artist, business, business-man, and HUMAN. He manages to weave personal trials and tribulations and turn them into meaninful songs which people from all backgrounds can relate to. His world is not exclusive, and if you've read any other books on "How to Be Successful" you will see how Jay, from a young age, even to this day fully embodies these characteristics which ensure continued success. I went on to purchase "The Seat of the Soul" by Gary Zukav. I know, the two don't seem to pair well together unless you've read "Decoded" yourself. So, happy reading with some great tributes, fantastic images, and a compelling story.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Noise 29. Mai 2014
Von Jack D - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This book was interesting at times, but it was like a picture book. I read it on my kindle. I have to say, if this is Jay's attempt at writing, I'm not impressed. The only interesting thing was how he dealt crack and some of the instances of his father and their relationship. I feel that Jay can do a better job in telling his story, without being this lazy. If you're a huge fan of his music, you will enjoy this--I did. But I felt that he could have done better. Some interesting stuff in there, though.

Loved it. He is brilliant. He has indeed pulled himself up by his own bootstraps. I respect him more. After reading this I look at him as a different person

Having a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other is the most common thing in the world. The real bullshit is when you act like you dont have contradictions inside you, that youre so dull and unimaginative that your mind never changes or wanders into strange, unexpected places. &quote;
