What Happened? When Jay released his memoir Decoded late last year, the cover depicted a replica of Andy Warhol’s famous Rorschach painting from 1984.

Complex says: Upon the release of Decoded people marveled at its aesthetics, many of whom probably didn’t even recognize the cover’s famous work. The book served as an extension of Jay’s gritty past juxtaposed with his current appreciation of the beauty of the art world.
