JAY-Z is refusing to sign off on the autobiography he completed with writer Dream Hampton, despite his insistence that he’s covered most of the information in the book through his song lyrics:

“It’s too much. For the book, I was interviewed, people close to me were interviewed, so I was learning a lot of things I didn’t know as a child.

“It’s not anything I haven’t said in the past, in songs. It’s just more detailed… You can say exactly how everything went.”

Despite his refusal to publish the book, the material hasn’t gone completely to waste. The rapper born Shawn Carter says working on the project gave him a fresh perspective on his Dad, who left the family when he was only 11.He tells Rolling Stone magazine:

“It was still wrong… that he left, but he did stick around at a time when it wasn’t cool or popular. He married my mom at a time when guys were just leaving, and you’d never even meet your dad.

“So it (book) made me ease up a little bit in how I felt about him.”
