Jay-Z’s ‘Decoded’ book treasure hunt reaches halfway stage

Rapper has been hiding pages from his forthcoming book around New York

Jay-Z‘s interactive game based around his forthcoming book Decoded is reaching its halfway point.

The rapper’s book is set for release on November 16, and to promote it he’s launched a game in which players hunt down pages from the book hidden daily around New York City.

The treasure hunt at Bing.decodejay-z.com has so far seen 134 of “over 300” pages from the book released. The game is set to end on November 20.

Since October 18 fans have been solving clues on the site to find the location of the pages, which can be located physically or online. Those who find them are entered into draws to win signed pages and get gig tickets.

See Bing.decodejay-z.com for more information.

Rather than being a traditional autobiography, Decoded has seen Jay-Z examine his own songs in an attempt to help the public “decode” them.

Those featured in the book include ’99 Problems’, ‘Big Pimpin” and ‘My President Is Black’.
