I am Hov'

from Jay Z – U Don't Know Lyrics on Rap Genius


There has been different opinions as to what the nickname Hov' stands for. Most people agree that it is short for Jay-Hova, a stylized version of Jehovah—the name which God used to reveal himself to the Hebrews. Another, very unlikely, suggestion is that H.O.V stands for “hustler of Virginia” because Jay has previously talked about selling/buying drugs in Virginia
