I’ve been reading Decoded recently, which is a surprisingly good read. The usual self-rationalization etc., but Jay-Z shows some surprisingly insightful moments. In the book, he discusses the track I Can’t Get with That, as one of his first music videos when he was really trying to get out there. Back before labels took him seriously. He describes it as as a showcase for his various flows, and it’s a pretty amazing thing to watch.
