Watch It Here: Jay-Z Talks 'Decoded' With Cornel West

Jay-Z's hotly anticipated new book, Decoded, comes out Tuesday, and along with an interactive treasure hunt and a swank party in Miami, he's also promoting the book in a somewhat more highbrow way tonight: a talk at the New York Public Library hosted by noted author/professor Cornel West and the library's Paul Holdengräber.
