How tall is Jay-Z? Jay-Z stands 6 feet, 2 inches tall, a height befitting of a man of his stature. A towering presence both figuratively and literally, the hip-hop mogul born Sean Carter is nearly five inches taller than the average American male, who statistics tell us stands just over 5 feet, 9 inches tall. Put Hova in a pair of Tims, and he’s even taller, though these days, the rapper, entrepreneur and Brooklyn Nets co-owner probably sticks to fine Italian leather dress shoes.
Jay-Z’s height makes him taller than most other rap superstars, among them Eminem (5 feet, 8 inches), Lil Wayne (a mere 5 feet, 5.5 inches) and T.I. and Kanye West (both 5 feet, 9 inches). He’s a couple of inches shorter than Snoop Dogg, whose lanky 6-foot, 4-inch frame makes him one of the taller MCs in the game, but if the two were to mix it up on the court—perhaps at the Barclays Center, home of the Nets—we’re picking the bulkier Jay to dominate in the paint.
The real question is how Jay-Z measures up to his superstar wife, Beyonce, the star of the 2013 Super Bowl and the biggest superstar in pop. Beyonce is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, though if she slaps on stilettos like she wore at the Super Bowl, she’ll have little trouble seeing eye-to-eye with her man.
