the meaning behind Jay-Z is that he used to go by Jazzy in the 80'simage
but he then later changed it to match his mentors (Jaz-O)image

Travis Scott's meaning behind his name is that he got it from the guy who got abducted by aliens mr. Travis Scott /Movie :- Fire in the sky image

Those are two just to name a few

50 Cent was named after the O.G 50 Cent from fort greene!

Snoop Dogggy Dog got his name from his uncle who used to call him Snoopy from charlie brown!
