Hip-Hop Rumors: Jay Changed His Name, If You Didn’t Know!

I was alerted to something: Jay-Z has changed his name. The artist formally known as Jay-Z is now to be referred to as Jay Z.

Remove the dash and you have his new name for your pleasure. Now, I was thinking, in my own twisted mind that Jay removed the dash from his name as a sneak diss to Dame Dash! OK, I know its crazy and even foolish, but I’ve come to realize that Jay has a super slick way of dissing people. Recently Dame commented on Jay, where he said:

“In the barber shop listening to jays new album….I can’t front… I still like hearing him pop shit cause I know he’s telling the truth…proud to be be a part of that..#bittersweet.”

And then Jay-Z told Hot 97:

“No matter what, no time or space. No matter how many years I ain’t seen him, the love is still there because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history. We created something that’s going to go down forever. I can only have love for Damon.”

AND THEN HE DROPPED THE DASH LIKE 2 WEEKS LATER! GET IT!?! OHHHH…That Jay is slicker than a can of grease!


In related news, it doesn’t look like Jay “No Dash” Z is boycotting anything. I know people at AHH were calling and trying to verify this so-called massive boycott and nobody was able to do so. Looks like Stevie Wonder and Mary Mary are all alone in their protest. It doesn’t appear that anybody on that so-called massive list was really boycotting Florida.

In fact, it looks like this so-called royal baby has blocked out all the Trayvon coverage. Between that and Zimmerman’s BS saving somebody from their car, its looking like people have their hands full.

Moms ain’t smiling though. And neither is Dame! Lets link back up! Bring Dame back into the fray!!!!

I was kidding about him dissing Dame, for you WACK JOBS that think I was for real.

I’m out.

They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry! -illseed.

Illseed, Out.

    • eddieknucks

      Bandwagon? Really? Showing support to a family that lost a son? They didn’t say anything about race or injustice. Just showing support.

    that picture was some bullshit…a photo-op. damn, aint nothin personal or sacred nowadays! maybe thats why mom is not smiln? but she could have said no…

    • True, but if anything, YOU ( In the pic* ) are thinking about exploiting it & the celeb.
      (IE: I have a famous cousin (*Played WR Dallas Cowboys) & str8 up, I was like “Yo! Pose for this pic…so I can flash it to the B’ishes, etc.”

      He laughed & we flicked it up, but GOD doesn’t like ugly, and after he left, I was fuggin with the camera, and deleted all them ‘chets by accident.

      SMDH @ Self

      I never expected him to want a copy of the pic, let alone flash it so he can get some cooch!

      >> “Look, that’s me with the 1 & only, Mr. International himself, EDOGZ818!”…Said No One, ever!

    from what im hearing artists HAVE NOT cancelled any tours in florida and they keeping it business as usual… i said it before in the previous post and ill say it again, WE NEED TO TAKE THIS THING INTERNATIONAL! the 14th and 15th amendments don’t even signify we are citizens! now how can that be you ask? simple. because we are still “classified” as property! not to mention if we were nationalized citizens our voting rights would stay the same no matter what! congress has to approve our voting rights! not us! ya’ll notice how the native americans got their reservations? simple. they used terms like “cherokee nation”, “seminole nation”, “creek nation” and showed the U.N what the U.S government did to them and got their land. they have their own laws,police even property! we aren’t nationalized we have no flag to represent us we have nothing we can use to specifically identify ourselves to the rest of the world we need a new term to call ourselves but we need to stop refering to ourselves as “african american” because the U.N won’t recognize us as a legitmate group!… we could get a dual citizenship and transfer our funds along with other resources to another african country of our origin and develop our new nation there! the people who want to coon shuck and jive and kiss whitey’s ass can stay and get their scalps split meanwhile we can go build up a new nation and create some kind of utopia for ourselves instead of being killed for no reason! the enemy has declared war on us with that damn verdict and i can promise you all this… trayvon will not be the last one to get killed for NOTHING…the international community is recognizing our struggle hell iran had released an article the other day saying the u.s should be investigated for human rights violations towards american blacks! there are protests all over the world this thing is HUGE! talking won’t change shit, marching and singing “we shall overcome” aint going to do shit, and fussing and arguing with these coons,bedwenches,and house ni**ers aint going to change nothing… we have to take advantage of this situation while we got the platform otherwise we’re going to be victims of MASS GENOCIDE! don’t believe me? fine. but don’t go bitching or marching in the streets if another black youth get’s murdered by another race talking about THAT SHIT IS WRONG! HE SHOULD GO TO JAIL! and the verdict comes in and BAM! killer goes free… wake up black america….wake up.

    Ain’t no hip hop artists gonna boycott Florida right now. Too much music coming outta Miami. All the folks relocating there right now. The maybach movement. Wishful thinking.
