JAY-Z adds Hyphen Back to his Name & it’s All in Caps

Rapper JAY-Z has added back the hyphen to his name and he has also formatted the name to be all caps.

Way back in 2013, the music legend dropped the  hyphen in his name and officially became known as “Jay Z”.

The proud dad of three has added the hyphen back in a move he made in the announcement of his upcoming visual album.

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.

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