Lil Wayne recently dissed Jay-Z on his Carter IV track “It’s Good”, since the tracks release everybody wondered how/if Jay-Z would respond. Today MTV released a video from Jay-Z’s recent charity carnival in which Jay-Z discusses the diss and say it’s just hip hop.
Jay-Z’s best selling book ‘Decoded’ will be re-released November first with new chapters, illustrations and decoded songs. Details are scarce about the re-release, but that’s what we know for now. Check out an excerpt of Jay-Z’s new afterword below.
What still excites me about rap is that it’s an open thread, a cipher that listeners find their own meanings in. The point of this book is not to settle arguments or transform rap songs into neat stories with a beginning, middle, and end. Rather, I’m trying to point readers to some ideas and information, get them to see deeper into the music than they saw before and learn more about worlds different from their own (or find new ways of looking at the worlds they already know)—to find their own meanings and connect them back to their own lives. I want readers to see the craft and learn the context—and I want them to still be able to feel the magic, and enjoy the show. —JAY-Z
Update: The official cover for the re-release has been revealed. Check it out after the break.

When it comes to celebrity sex tapes, rule number one is to check TMZ to see if they’ve seen it. Why? Because if they seen it then it really exists. All other outlets you simply can’t believe unless they are showcasing proof. Well, looks like we can expect to see a super-rare sex tape hitting the scene soon featuring one of your favorite rappers.
TMZ is reporting that they have saw a Tupac Shakur sex tape, featuring him recieving felatio from a female.

Hey, I might not be interested in seeing Tupac’s penis, but can we get that unreleased music featured in the video asap? Ha. TMZ’s description of the Tupac sex tape after the jump.
