  • Shawn”Jay-Z” Carter has transcended from corner hustler to entertainment industry mogul, amassing a fortune of $450 million, according to Forbes. He has become a household name even Oprah–once a staunch critic–now respects.  In fact, he recently credited the talk show host with inspiring his latest venture, Decoded (Spiegel & Grau, $35), a book which was released today. The 300-page read highlights his experiences, from Marcy Projects to the White House, and dissects metaphors and symbolism in his lyrics.
