Jay-Z (Kind Of) Undergoes Name Change
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.But don't feel guilty if you have been misspelling Jay Z's name wrong all these years. As Levy points out, even the rapper's own label, Roc Nation, is confused. They've listed the rapper as Jay-Z on the album cover of 2009's The Blueprint 3, but no where else on the record.

As least fans can take solace at the fact that didn't change his name to a mere symbol.
