Jay-Z Rocks The Nerdy Librarian Look At Book Signing (PHOTOS)

Fans who may have missed Jay-Z’s two hour reading at the New York Public Library yesterday, got to wait in line on Manhattan’s 5th Avenue for a chance to get the “Empire State Of Mind” rapper’s John Hancock on a copy of his new 336-page book Decoded. For the meet and greet, the Roc Nation co-founder donned similar bespecticled look seen earlier this year by Justin Bieber while in Los Angeles for the signing of his memoir. Perhaps it’s the easiest way to say, “I’m a music giant, but I’m also a writer.” Check out Hova’s scholarly look for his book store appearance.
