He needs a downgrade to 6-1 1/4

@Rob maybe a downgrade to 6’1.25?

Agree with viper. Same with Will smith who’s around that height

Always been 6'1 or 186 cm max. The same height as R.Kelly Click Here Click Here
Ethan184cm said on 26/Aug/22
Rob, could you see 186cm peak 6’1.25 and a weak to decent 185cm nowadays 6’0.75-6’1. I think that would be the most accurate listing for Jay Z as his height fluctuates from looking almost 6’2 to looking barley 6’0.5 in some cases.
viper said on 13/Jun/22
6-1.25 is the absolute most he could be
Rowan182.5cm said on 12/Jun/22

6-1.5 is too much

It's been mentioned a few times over the years in the comments, unknown if he was guessed that tall by the person entering information or not.

Looks 6’0.5-6’0.75 with Beyonce at times. Probably a weak 6’2 in footwear.

That's probably good estimates, as he was listed 6'1 by a mugshot. No his height is over the place

this guy is one of the most fluctuative celebrity in terms of height, really hard to pinpoint cause sometimes he can look much shorter than he usually looks, but i would say with a good sleep +bust a gut, he would likely clear 186 cm around 2-3 pm measurement

Similar to Jonathan Davis. Both claim 6'2" and can look near it at times but also can look 6'0" a lot of the time. And I think they're both 6'1" - 6'1.5" range types who have bad posture.

This guy has a very trickish height tbh, sometimes he looks 5'11-6'0, other times he looks 6'1-6'2. I can't even put a finger on how tall he is, i'ma just leave it the way it is

Lol, uhh he's still at his "peak"

He's a really weird one. I do think he's 6-1 minimum but has relaxed/horrendous posture

Deserves a current and peak listing. He's bare minimum 0.5 inches shorter than Kyrie Irving who is listed 6'1 1/2 here.
1 man united said on 15/Jul/20
Rob, have you considered updating his current height, I agree this was his peak height but in recent photos he's shorter than 185cm Marcus Rashford and is barely taller than 181.5 cm Frank ocean. I believe his current height is 183.4 at best( 6'0.5).
Editor Rob
At 50 would Jay Z lose some height, or could it be a more relaxed posture...I can see how Jay Z in last few years does seem just 6ft 1
Vastlybetter said on 30/Jun/20
Rob, one person I'm missing in the "American Rappers" category is KRS One. Big guy with a bigger personality. Google has him listed at 6'4.

He is not really what you'd call popular at the moment, but there is no doubt he is a legend in the world of rap with a huge influence.
viol said on 20/May/20
Might have been 6'2 in his peak but looking like 6'1 right now. This is Hov standing next to Kyrie Irving who was measured 6'1.75 in his pre-draft.

it either is going to be from the suspected criminal or the estimate of an officer.

Since Jay Z already came out with 6ft 2, it's possibly the latter, though some people always inflate heights the more famous they become.

I think that Obama is under 6'1 as Willem Alexander looked taller.

To tell you guys the truth, not a lot of people are taller than Barack Obama.

Jay Z is an exception. His 6'2" claim is not all silly as he's only rounding up by half an inch.
Sam said on 20/May/17
How anyone says Jay Z is 6ft flat is beyond me. He edges Obama out in every photo who is a legit 6'1. 187 is right for him. Not quite the full 6'2 but he has near an inch on Obama. I think he looks small in other photos because he has bad posture.
growtallerguru said on 8/May/17
how are some of you simpletons saying he is 5'11" or under 6 feet? or drake is 5'10"??? you do not deserve to have your comments on this site.
Jay Z is without a doubt above 6'1"
Drake is above 5'11"

Here is Jay with 188 listed Future in the hat. Jay looks more like a 6ft here to me. Future has poor posture and still looks a good two inches taller than Jay. Obvs there is a footware difference but not massively so. What do you think Rob? Click Here
Editor Rob
I don't know if the Future has any advantage (if the camera guy was closer to Future than Jay Z)...jay can at times look just 6ft 1, but then standing tall can look over it I feel.
Joe said on 1/Jul/16
I really doubt he's even 6'1". If he's really 6'1.5" and look that short next to bill gates then he must be having some really horrible posture.

Mike Smith said on 1/Feb/16
Those pictures with Obama are across the room from each other. You can't tell from that angle. Plus Jay Z was wearing Timbs while Obama is in dress shoes with a suit. It's okay. I'll take NFL combine measurements over estimates from pictures from Obama who we don't have an official measurement taken from other than what the white house says. All I know is when it comes to someone barely over 6'2 they always tower him. Geno Smith did the same and he is 6'2 3/8. Doesn't really bother me tho lol. I just stumbled on this site and I saw Jay-Z name and I was like "no way lol"

God bless and have a great day Rob. =) Add Post Malone, Bryson Tiller, partynextdoor. They are blowing up in music atm
Mike Smith said on 28/Jan/16
Nah Jay Z is 6' at the most...Here is him next to Jaelen Strong his roc nation sports client. Jaelen was measured at 6'2 and 3/8 at the NFL combine. He plays for the texans now. I don't know where you got 6'1.5 from

sometimes photos don't reveal the real difference. With the NFL guy he can look short, with With Obama in one shot he can look tall.
Thereel said on 7/Dec/15
jay z is 6 feet tall 183 or 184cm just as he looks in this picture with dwane wade Click Here

yes he can look around his 6'2 claim most of the time because he has good posture which may be giving him a height advantage over other celebrities in pictures who arn't standing as well (ie will smith) who i deffo believe would of been at least 4cm taller with better posture even though jay z was looking taller
Brandon Love and Lauren Mayberry forever said on 6/Dec/15
@5ft10 That's CJ Watson, who used to play for the Nets. He's 6'2" listed, measured 6'0.5" at the pre draft. Jay-Z may have a slight edge on him on that picture, hard to tell from the angle, but he's probably a solid 6'1" barefoot at worst.
Matt the great said on 21/Oct/15
never has look shorter then 6ft to me ever, his build is kind of lanky id say a solid 6ft0.5 -6ft0.75 so if he were to claim 6ft 1 that'd be ok

6'1 Joe said on 25/Apr/15
Why would a supposedly 6'2" man be listed at 6'1" in his mugshot profile?? They usually add up 1 inch. No chance this guy is over 6'1", he wears lifts, simple as that.There can two reasons for his 6'1" listing in mugshot profile- either he has a horrible posture which comes from his skinny fat physique or he wears lift which didn't wear in those days.
Stewart said on 13/Apr/15
Its always been obvious that A-rod is 6'1". I think Jeter is a bit taller.

IMO I think Jay Z wears lifts. Didnt look taller than 5'11" with Geno Smith and also looked under 6'0" with Larry Johnson.

The guy is taller than 6'1" Obama, and is the same height as Will Smith (who was every bit of 187 CM in person). Jay-Z is at least 187 CM.
5ft10guy said on 30/Mar/15
what "lifts" this guy is tall but I think he's closer to 6ft2 unlike some people posted here look at him next to Jermaine Cole(J-Cole) I think J-Cole is 6ft2 1/2 to 6ft3 tops while jay is 6ft1.75 like both of them are wearing boots but are very identical to height don't let J-cole hair fool you.He's also more upright then Jayz:

Joe said on 4/Mar/15
I think he definitely deserves a downgrade. 186 cm is safe enough for him. He is a lift wearer.

Deron Williams is 6'3. My best friend is 6'2 I am 6'0 since he's normally the tallest person around he slouches a lot! In every picture we take we look the same height. and people tell him all the time he dosn't look 6'2 because if his posture then he fixes it stands straight and then immediately you can tell oh ok this guy is 6'2 . Same for me around shorter people i bend a certain way because it's awkward being tall normally you just want to blend in with the seen. Will smith never wore lifts in the fresh prince of bel air. Beyonce is 5'7 she wears high heels a lot! Jay z stills looks way taller then her....

@188 CM Celebheights: You pegged Puffy at 186 cm based on just one pic. If you look at that picture, Diddy is standing closer to the camera.Plus, the camera is lower. Check out for one of the Rob's video on Youtube about Mugshots and camera angles. It can produce a huge difference.

Deron has 0.5 inches on Jay Z, Jay Z should be 6'1.25"(186 cm), that seems to be suitable, he also looks 186 cm with Obama.

I'm confused, there are plenty pics where he looks 6'2(especially with 6'1 measured Obama), then there are equal number of pics where he looks 5'11 range.
Mathew said on 10/Jul/14
MLB listing are always correct.


No, they actually extremely inaccurate sometimes. They're not as consistently too high like NBA listings but they can be as bad or worse at times. A-Rod is shorter than Jeter who might not even be 6'3" himself.

And he looks 6'0" tops in the Jordan pick.

i agree with this listing! 6'1.5 (1,87 m) on the nose for him is a good estimate for Jay-Z. He always looked taller than Obama, who's a legit 6'1.
Joe said on 11/Jun/14
Seahawksfan 187- 188: Dude, you're a complete idiot, if Jay z is coming up to Michael Jordan's eye level, he's easily 4 inches shorter.
Jay Z ain't more than 6'0, end of the story.
Brad said on 10/Jun/14
Must be without his Timbs with #23....I got Jordan by an inch and Jay Z by me didn't look that much shorter than a couple in Timbs. He been caught height sleepin' and #23 is leaning in.
Joe said on 9/Jun/14
@Seahawksfan: Jay z is looking 4-5 inches shorter than Michael Jordan in that pic.

Jay Z is about 5'11" or less we are about the same height. Saw him backstage awhile back.

@Seahaeksfan: Jay z is a lift wearer simple as that, harry's pic below is more informative as you can see their shoes there, plus that guy in the pic is not larry johnson, larry johnson never had that tanned skin
Harry said on 20/May/14
Here is the pic of jay z with Larry Johnson,you can even see their shoes, jay z isn't more than 6 feet.

Harry said on 16/May/14
Jay is 5'11-6' flat, he's a lift wearer, Geno brutally destroys and even if jay z would be in a god posture, he could not have pulled anything over 5'11.5, plus he's also shorter than Larry Johnson, he doesn't tower Bill gates, who's a very weak 5'9 now.
Rankin boy said on 15/May/14
He probably over 6'2 with his thick super heels on, without them he's only 6 feet or even 5'11, he's a lift wearer just like Puff daddy.
strong said on 22/Apr/14
Jay is 6' flat, all those pics are with lifts.
twade25 said on 14/Apr/14
I saw Jay Z at the 40/40 last summer. Im Barefoot 6'3/4 and a little over 6'1 with shoes on and I had on loafers and me and Jay were standing right next to eachother. He had an advantage with shell toe Adidas on and he still was a little shorter than me. so I would give him about 5'11.5 to 6'1 depending on footwear and posture. I dont think he is barefoot 6'1
strong said on 10/Apr/14
Let me know y'all one thing, Kobe Bryant is surprisingly equal to 6'3.5 Game, jay z is 184 max.

Height can be deceiving
Cuz I matched with a guy who said he was 6'2 but I didn't believe him my height is somewhere between 5'9-5'10 he looked like a 6'0 or 6'1

@Seahawksfan identical? He clearly looks an inch taller if not more than him in that pic.

@Mr. Sheridan are you kidding me??? You said that playing actually makes you taller? You are bit confused...
Star said on 12/Nov/13
I saw him in person. he is not taller than 5'11". Really unless you saw him in person you can't be arguing so passionately that he's taller against those of us who have seen him.
Mr. Sheridan said on 17/Oct/13
Actually, sportsmen appear to or three inches taller than they are cuz while playing their spine decompresses, and at times they appear taller, that is why you see Geno Smith far taller than Jay Z.It happened with me in summer vacations, I was 5'8 and my bully brother said you look 6', seriously.
5ft10 guy said on 15/Oct/13
yeah I heard that song but sometimes people can think your shorter then what you are by your body type or posture.You dont know how the 5ft7 claim came to be.You dont know if he was asked and he said "ehh 5ft7" or if it was assumed.People who are husky with a build like kanye look shorter but look at pharrell with Jayz look at the big difference in height does he really look only two inches taller then a 5ft9 man in dress shoes?

Matt, how can he be 6'0-'6'1 when 6'0.4 measured Larry Johnson clearly as 1-2 inches on him.
Mathew said on 11/Oct/13
@5ft10 guy - I can agree with Nas somewhere around 5'8" but Kanye is 5'7". I'm not positive on Leo's height myself, I think 5'11.5" is pretty generous but it could be right. I just think that he's not over 5'11". I don't claim to know any of these heights for a fact, but I definitely do not believe Kanye is 5'8" if he's got 5'7" mentioned in his music.
5ft10 guy said on 10/Oct/13
@matthew if Leo is 5ft10.5 why does Rob have him at 5ft11.5 and kanye at 5ft8 along with Nas.So either you're wrong or Rob has been been messing up alot.Jayz cant be 6ft-5ft11 as that isnt a tall height.I think you should make a choice 4) which is jay is a 6ft2-6ft1.75 guy who slouches and doesnt stand as tall as he can.
Mathew said on 3/Oct/13
@5ft10 guy -- I've always thought Leo Dicaprio is more 5'10.5" - 5'11" anyways. Jay Z could be between 6'0" and 6'1". But Geno Smith towered him. Oh and Kanye is 5'7" btw, just as stated in that song "American Boy". You really think a guy with Kanye's ego would downgrade himself an inch? He's 5'7" tops.

Jay Z usually looks anywhere from 5'11" to 6'2" in photos, which either means 1) he's a 5'11" range guy who wears lifts and tries to look extra tall 2) he's around 6'0" - 6'1" tops or 3) he's a 6'1" - 6'2" guy who has a huge slouch. To me I think #2 is most likely.
5ft10 guy said on 27/Sep/13
Why are you getting upset so much?Seems like you have something against the man.The geno smith picture isnt very good.So what Robinson Cano is 5ft9 hmph Ive been to yankee stadium and have seen Cano upclose and hes tallish.Jayz is also farther away from the camera.I really do think hes about 6ft2-6ft1.75.Alot of guys Rob puts at 6ft2 Jay looks taller then them.For example Graham McTavish doesnt look as tall as Jayz did next to Kanye West or say Nas both 5ft8 guys like Rob .When you say Jayz is 5ft10 thats just stupid.Jayz has been next to diddy (5ft10) females 5ft9(Skylar Diggins) and is still taller then him and her in monster heels!Here is Jayz with Leonardo Dicaprio Who's close to 6ft.Ofcourse Jayz is taller by how much I'll let you decide. Looks 6ft2 he just is.

I'm 6'4.5, I've met Jay Z, he does'nt even look 6'1, top of his head was levelling my eyes, he would be 6' max. and 5'10 min. He's a ****ing liar, he was looking ****ed when he stood with Geno Smith.
Sawyer03 said on 24/Sep/13
Always found interesting reading people say that 1.87 isnt tall, especially when you take into account that the average male is 1.75
KROC said on 19/Sep/13
Jay is nowhere near 6'2. I use to see him at Rucker Park in 2003 around the time of the NYC blackout. He looked closer to 6'1.
DP said on 13/Sep/13
I expected Will Smith to be much taller than me also.
DP said on 13/Sep/13
i expected him to be taller. Jay said on his new album he's 6'2. He's at least 6 foot easily. He Always looked tall to me but not too tall.
I'm usually around 186 cm but i think Jay looks much taller than me on pictures. But i was also totally suprised when i heard a classmate say hes 185 cm cause to me he looked very tall. i thought i was much shorter.
can it be true that somebody of your own height looks taller to you in your own eyes when you look at them from a distance somehow?
Viper said on 7/Sep/13
His height goes up and down like crazy. Just like LL Cool J.

Hes at MOST 5'11, imo. The pic with Larry Johnson is very good because hes wearing what looks to be pretty flat shoes.
Mathew said on 28/Aug/13
vtec says on 27/Aug/13
jayz needs a serious downgrade


Maybe an inch? I wouldn't downgrade him by 3" based on that one pic, as he's looked much taller often enough. But 184 cm might be more plausible for Jay Z.
Viper said on 28/Aug/13
Sly stallone would be envious of his lifts.
Viper said on 28/Aug/13
Johnson is in another pic where he looks about 2 inches taller. How can a supposed 6'1.5 guy look 5'10. The answer is he wears lifts.
Viper said on 27/Aug/13
He cant be taller than 5'10.5 thats for sure. 6'2 Geno destroys him. He must be a lift wearer.
vtec said on 27/Aug/13

Joe joe said on 26/Aug/13
im going to be honest I don't think Jayz is 6'2 either but in the pic with Larry Johnson, Johnson I think is wearing lifted boots. I've seen other pics with him and Jayz where he comes up shorter than jay. I will post them if you ask nicley
Mathew said on 25/Aug/13
Viper says on 24/Aug/13
He looks 5'10 with Geno Smith. I see 4 inches. He also looked under 6'0 with Larry Johnson as well.

Jay is 5'10. And remember the Geno measurement is in the morning too.


Jay Z at 5'10" isn't possible. 5'10" - 5'11" is arguable in that one pic, but look at him next to 6'4.75" Kobe Bryant, he's suddenly a good 6'2": Click Here
I don't know if lifts come in to play at all, but he CAN look his listed height or taller on occasion. That said, looking at other pics of him with Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, and Kanye West (who is 5'7", not 5'8" as listed here) I think 6'1.5" is VERY debatable for Jay Z. He can look 6'1" in one pic, and then be struggling mightily with 6'0" in the next.
Viper said on 25/Aug/13
Cano isnt 6'0. Hes 5'10. Geno was measured at 6'2 3/8 exactly in the morning.

Mathew said on 21/Aug/13
Geno Smith measured 6'2 3/8" to be exact, which is 189 cm. Jay Z looks about 181 cm in that photo. If we assume that the difference in height is even half of what it appears to be in that photo Jay Z still only comes out at 185 cm. He could be 187 cm but I'd be leaning towards a 185 - 186 cm listing.

I saw Jay Z at 40/40 next to a 5'11" tall model at an event. He was wearing boots, she was wearing flats, and they were the same height. He can not be more than 6'0" or even 5'11".

He shape-shifts, so his height can swing a fair bit.

Based on his pic with Geno Smith, he needs a serious downgrade. Smith is 6'2 and it was verified during NFL combine. There is a solid 3 inch difference between them. Tells you that Jay Z wears lifts.

Seems a legit 6'2 due to the obama pics. Obama is 6'1.5. Will seemed taller than Jay Z in the photos shown. He was leaning back more than Jay Z and was still taller. He had boots on though while the shoes Jay Z had didn't add much to his height.
Jed said on 2/May/13
Again, hardly taller than DiCaprio at the Gatsby premier.
penguinboy25 said on 26/Apr/13
I believe 6'0.75 or 185 cm max is closer. I'd say there is more evidence that shows this rather than him being 6'1.5 or 6'2. 6'2 is ridiculous.

He's under 6'1. The Deron Williams video proves that.

He's not 6'0.5 thats too low.That picture with 50 you dont know what their standing on and the picture below it shows Jayz and Dr.Dre.And in that pic Jayz is much taller looking 6'3 in that pic so you cant go on headshot pics at least this one with Heavy D(6ft2.5)their legs are visible anyways. Jayz looks 6ft2 with Heavy D same height with Heavy being taller by a slim.Jayz posture have to be put into account too.Jay-z is 6ft2 Heavy D is 6ft2 but Rob put 6ft2.5 for D.
Jayz is never really towered by 6ft4 guys ever.A rapper like 2chainz(needs to be added) who's like 6ft4.5(this guy's height is recorded since he played basketball) range did'nt towers Jayz in their pic together. I think Rob should upgrade him 6ft2 is his real height...Legendary Rapper Legendary Height.

Besides them not looking identical in height in that picture (Jeter is clearly taller), you do know that baseball height listings are just as often exaggerated as any other American sport, right? There are a not insigificant amount of little 5'7" and 5'8" guys running around on the field listed anywhere from 5'9" to 5'11".


Yes Jeter is at least an inch taller than Jay Z in that picture and Jeter probably isn't even a legit 6'3". Look at the fan who caught his 3000th hit (this guy claims 6'3") next to Jeter:

@MD Jeter has about 1inch-1.5 tops!Jayz isnt alot shorter then him at all. And you assumption that all athletes have their height boosted up is totally not true and silly.I dont think you notice Jayz neck isnt erect.Jeter's hair also increases his height.I look at the top of his hairline.

jayz isnt just 6'1 max the pictures Ive seen with him and williams hes never towered and their pratically the same. the time williams looks taller jayz isnt standing straight and 2. the floor hes standing on has to play a part as well. In my opinion same height .Jayz 6'1.75-6'2 range.Deron 6'1.75-6'2

I agree with Dsmooth. In pictures taken with 6'1.75 measured point guard Deron Williams, Jay-z looks at least .5 of an inch shorter.

Actually, I've changed my mind on Jay-Z and Obama... Obama was measured at 6'1'' according to the medical document, but we do not know what time of day he was measured.... he could be 6'0'' if he was measured at 6'1'' in the morning.

Jay-Z has the frame of an average man, which makes him look not tall at all. He looks 5'9'' when standing on his own because of his small frame. Does not give a tall impression in the slightest.

50 cent is not even 5'11 but we don't see their feet and the ground could be uneven. i think 6'1.5 is accurate for jay z and i never liked him.

Can someone explain this to me?

Jay-Z with 6'0 listed 50 Cent. 50 and Jay are looking the exact same height, with Jay maybe .5 taller

Click Here

but yet on this picture, Jay is looking 2 inches taller than 50, how could that be?

Click Here

I think Jay-Z probably wears lifts on some occassions. He literally wants to be a larger than life rapper. I think his real height is 6'0.5 but I guess he wants to be 6'2 for some reason so wears thick footwear. I don't care if you Jay groupies wanna bash me for this one but the first 50 cent picture says it all.
The Exorcist said on 7/Sep/12
@cobra: Jay-Z's listing is correct. Will Smith is about 6'1" or maybe just a tad under.

Either Jay-Z or Will Smith are lying about their height. Look at the difference in footwear here:

Jay-Z is probably 6-2 or a little under while Will Smith is 6-1 or a little under
