Rebranding? JAY-Z adds Hyphen Back to his Name & Formats it to All Caps



Jay Z

Way back in 2013, music legend JAY-Z dropped the hyphen in his name and officially became known as “Jay Z” but, in a move made noticeably by the announcement of his soon-to-be-released visual album, the proud dad of three has added the hyphen back.

He has also formatted the name to be all caps.

According to a short statement made available by his publicist to Entertainment Weekly:

“Jay Z” is now a relic of the past, consigned to the dustbin of history. In its place stands JAY-Z, now with the hyphen back in its place and the whole name in all-caps.

Long live JAY-Z.

So far the 47-year-old rapper’s Wikipedia page has been updated and international media outlets have switched to the new name.

    Hova had to capitalize his name to remind Bey and her hives who wears ‘draws’ in his mug. Lol
