It's officially Jay Z.
Word comes from Billboard's editor, Joe Levy, who says this news come from the label. However, Hov may have been attempting to drop the hyphen from his name for awhile now, because as people have pointed out, since the Watch The Throne days there has been a lack of a hyphen in Jay's printed name. His Facebook page has been spelled without a hyphen as well. Although it seems like the no-hyphen spelling never took in the past, maybe it will this time. What do you think?
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.— Joe Levy (@RealJoeLevy) July 18, 2013
