A lot of uneducated guesses in here about how he got his name Jay-Z initially



In his neighborhood, Carter was known as "Jazzy", a nickname that eventually developed into his showbiz/stage name, "Jay-Z". The moniker is also an homage to his musical mentor, Jaz-O, as well as to the J/Z subway lines that have a stop at Marcy Avenue in Brooklyn.

jay used to be referred to as jazzy
That too, there's multiple meanings to it but I grew up hearing the J/Z train story the most.

The JazO reference is new to me though.

It would only take a few seconds.

Search for "Jay-Z"
Ctrl+A, right click, properties
Artist Name "Jay Z"

Typing those steps took longer than it would've took
you know how many albums he made? i dont think its a big deal thats all

changing that - aint going effect the songs he done.

what about the features he done over his rap career? would you change that too?

Hove says it comes from the 2 trains that are close to Marcy projects J/Z line Flushing Ave stop. I dont believe it because that is at least a 5-6 block walk. The G train is right across the street from Marcy projects

iTunes been selling his sh*t under the name JAY Z instead of Jay-Z since WTT dropped. I thought it was something with him leaving Rocafella and going to Roc Nation and not being able to take his name with him, idk.

To be fair the G is mad struggle. Sh*t never runs.

If it was like that when he was coming up then he might've been doing them 6 blocks instead of waiting in the station
