Biography On Jay-Z To Be Released Next Year

Only days after the release of Jay-Z and writer Dream Hampton’s Decoded publishing company Penguin Group has announced that they will be releasing a biography of their own on the famed rapper.

XXLMag reports that the biography, which will be titled Empire State Of Mind: How Jay-Z Went From Street Corner To Corner Office, will be released early next year.

Empire State Of Mind will include interviews from Damon Dash, Fred “Fab 5 Freddy” Brathwaite, Questlove, and more; the book was written by Forbes magazine’s Zack O’Malley Greenburg.

It is unclear how much input Jay-Z had in the book, if any. Consisting of a little over 200 pages Empire State Of Mind will chronicle everything from Jay-Z’s days at Marcy Projects to his current success as a businessman and Hip Hop mogul.

Empire State Of Mind is scheduled to be released on March 17, 2011.
