True hip-hop fans have been listening to, watching, and reading about Shawn ďJay-ZĒ Carter for what seems like forever. Even though he many not know a majority of his fans and followers, it feels as though Hov is a guy we all know well.

Jay-Z has revealed so much about himself through his music, that it is almost impossible not to feel some sort of connection with him. He may not be as explicit about his personal life as an artist like Eminem, but he does reveal interesting facts himself from time to time.

Regardless of how many Hov tracks you have memorized, there are tons of facts about your favorite rapper you may not be aware of! Weíve done a little research and compiled a series of things you would have never known about Jay-Z! Enjoy!

20. Reasonable Doubt was originally titled Heir to the Throneimage

19. Sir Paul McCartney knighted him "Sir Hova of Brooklyn" (with a sword) in an unofficial ceremony.

18. It was Jason Kidd who first suggested Jay-Z's ownership position with the New Jersey Nets.
