Posted By on July 10, 2009

    Jay-Z is reportedly close to signing his first official book deal through Random House publishing which should consist of three releases. The first book in the deal is reported to consist of Jay-Z commenting on and telling stories behind his lyrics while the other two will a traditional memoir and the third will be some kind of business book.

    In related news, Jay-Z was set to release "The Black Book" after his "Black Album" back in 2003 but the book never hit stores. He reportedly signed a deal with MTV Books to publish his autobiography, to be co-written by hip-hop journalist Dream Hampton, but once the book was finished, Jigga reportedly didn't want to release it and it was shelved.
