Jay Zed, AKA Jay Zee, AKA Jigga Man had the top of his head, including his eyes, removed in January 1999 in an attempt t appear more hip-hop (y'all niggaz can't see me). Perhaps rather predictably, the procedure ended in disaster, Jay realising that the only person rendered unable to see after the op was himself. In an attempt to cover up his blunder, he then glued a baseball cap to his mangled head, which he wears to this day.
In the song "Death of Autotune", Jay Z was so good at singing, his melodious voice had to be distorted using computer software, so as not to appear hypocrytical.
