- By Bossip Staff

Legendary emcee and Roc Nation mogul Jay-Z recently decided to pay a second visit to veteran journalist Charlie Rose to discuss his book Decoded, as well as discuss his past, present and future in Hip-Hop.

During the interview, Jay-Z touched on why he decided to rewrite Decoded and why the original version was too much to read.

“I am normally a private person,” Jay said in the interview. “So when I first sat down to do the book, it was very personal and hard for me to read because it was very personal.
