Jay-Z has been working with writer Dream Hampton on an autobiography for over 4 years now. But now there’s a big problem: Hov refuses to release the book because he realized that he disclosed way too much information.

Jay is refusing to sign off on the autobiography because he says he doesn’t want fans to know too much about his personal life and his background. And he feels as though he’s already covered most of the information in the book on record, so he’s afraid of people reading into his past and digging deeper into his personal life.

“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, he told Rolling Stone. “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.”

Hmm, we wonder what information was disclosed in that book. He claims that we’ve heard it on tracks, but if that TRULY was the case, there would be no problem in releasing the book. Right? Don’t be scared now Hovi!
