Jay-Z Sued Over "Decoded" Book (DETAILS)

Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter has been slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit over his hit 2010 book "Decoded."

Patrick White, a writer, is suing the hip-hop mogul for allegedly stealing portions of his own book and using them in "Decoded," according to Allhiphop.com.

"In 2009, my personal computer was compromised, resulting in my personal work to be used in Jay-Z's book Decoded which was released in 2010," White claims in his complaint.

"The book contains various expressions/colors/phrases, which correlates to my work," White claims. "After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author, I got no reply."

White claims that he was writing his own book on his personal laptop, which was stolen the year before Jay-Z released his own book "Decoded."

"Decoded" is described as being a collection of lyrics along with the story behind their meanings.
