Jay-Z is said to have officially changed his name to er, Jay Z!
The Holy Grail rapper's label Roc Nation reportedly informed Billboard editor Joe Levy that Hov has dropped the hyphen from his name.
Taking to Twitter, Levy wrote: "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."
His followers then suggested that Jigga had made the move a few years ago, to which he replied: "Didn't take, though. The hyphen is strong."
Levy continued: "Didn't take anywhere. NYT, all media, fans. Or the cover of [Blueprint III], for that matter. iTunes credits 'JAY Z'; cover says 'JAY-Z'."
Jigga also hit the headlines this week after visiting the real life Magna Carta following the success of his 12th studio LP, with its title being inspired by the medieval document.
