@ the JazO comparisons/allegations, never heard that before.

The J and Z trains are the brown line in New York, which go through Marcy Ave.

J/Z = Jay-Z


Changing the name on iTunes is easy, but changing all the features? F-ck that, he's Jay-Z for life.
MArcy Ave stop is so far from Marcy PJs.

so hove just decided to name himself after someone who prolly is his age or within 5 years of his senior/junior?

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
The G used to be bad back in the days. these days great. He could of called himself Shawn G...lol

Doesn't matter or won't matter to be honest. I always thought that jay-z got his name from sounding off close to his mentor jaz-o. I never knew about the J/Z train line to marcy projects.

So dude actually reps his projects with his name thats pretty creative
it is creative but I never believe that was his reason. I wont flame him for it though. Still the top cat in this game.

His name was jay-z because of some sh*t dealing with the 5% nation meaning the last god...J/Jay equals jesus or jehovah and z which is the last letter of the alphabet. The Z is there to symbolize the last prophet.

I dont like the name without the hyphen.. Jay getting all bugois on us.
Bug who?

You mean bourgeois?

Jay-Z is from Jaz-O, any other explanation is an episode of Ancient Aliens aka BS

Actually it was Jazzy. Then he mixed it wit Jaz-O and got Jay-Z. Jigga came a lil later.
the jay z name does seem really random. and he doesn't have a bad name shawn carter I feel like he coulda came with something that was relatable to his original name. and youre def right that jigga came later. i don't get why he would basically take the same name. but regardless u cant hate on him for any of that. jay z is not just a rapper, his name is basically a brand in itself. hes so many things and established so much with that name, hes not my favorite but i def have a lot of respect for him
