Jay Z Gets Rid of the Hyphen in His Name

We Bid a Fond Farewell to Jay Z's Hyphen

Big news in the world of punctuation today — Jay Z has officially dropped the hyphen from his name, Spin reports. The change was made public Wednesday night when Billboard editor Joe Levy tweeted the news, saying, "Jay Z has dropped the hyphen from his name, according to his label. I am not kidding. Copy editors: take note."

Jay Z has yet to confirm the change, but it's worth noting that he was credited as "JAY Z" on his 2011 collaboration with Kanye West, Watch the Throne. It's also how the rapper's name is shown on his most recent album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. We have to admit, we're a little sad to see Hova's hyphen go, but we trust his creative decision.
