Yo, drop the hyphen!
MANILA, Philippines - It's Jay Z. Not Jay-Z.
The rapper from New York no longer goes by a hyphen, reports tech site "The Verge."
Jay Z's label confirmed the tweaking of his name, as tweeted by Billboard editor Joe Levy. But the 43-year-old rapper who was born Shawn Corey Carter has been going without the hyphen for some time.
Jay Z's dropping the hyphen follows on the heels of other artists in the sphere of rap and R&B who have also revised their aliases. - Rappler.com
