New Rules. New Name. Jay Z has apparently dropped the connecting hyphen from his name and will no longer be known as “Jay-Z”. The head scratching news came courtesy of Billboard who received word from the label of this new law of the land and to be fair, if you’ve checked Hov’s official Facebook page, it’s also listed as JAY Z. Still, this begs the question, does this mean that he’s no longer reciting the illest shit in the game? You’ll have to buy Magna Carta Holy Grail on iTunes and decide that for yourself.
Breaking: Jay Z has dropped the hyphen from his name, according to his label. I am not kidding. (Wish I was.) Copy editors: take note.
