Jay-Z Height has been recorded at 6’2 officially making him one of the tallest rappers in hip hop to date.

With Jay regularly attending basketball games on the court side there has always been much speculation around his height when stood next to the pro athletes since he doesn’t appear too much shorter though not as tall.

Our editorial provides proof of Jay-z’s height through visual imagery as well as his own lyrics.

So how do we know Jay z is 6’2? Back in 2013 he released the track heaven from his studio album Magna Carta Holy Grail.

The Heaven lyrics go as follows, They can’t believe this much skill is in the human body, He’s 6’2″, how the fuck he fit in a new Bugatti?, Aw, fuck it, you got me”

Referring to the car Bugatti not having enough leg room for someone his size and stature at 6’2.

When rappers aren’t bragging about their wealth it’s their physical appearance which height plays a big part of and something jay doesn’t shy away from.



Height in Comparison

The official NBA site states Lebron James height at 6’9! Stood next to Jay Z we can see a clear difference in his height and size and remember Jay-z is one of the tallest rappers.

The average NBA players is 6’6, which towers over the average man which should further put things into perspective, but by no means is jay z short but when stood amongst the athlete the difference is noticeable.


Another example we have is Jay Z stood next to Nipsey prior to his death who was around 6’4. Though taller than jay it isn’t a sizeable difference in comparison to his picture with LeBron.

Does Height Matter in Hip Hop

As long as the fans are sold by the music we don’t care about height!

Yes the taller you are the more room you have for bragging points, however it should be noted that we have countless number of short rappers who are successful with global impact such as Wayne, Eminem and Kendrick.

Jay-z’s height doesn’t influence his music, fans pay attention to talent mostly!
