Charlamagne Tha God Says He Thought HOV Highway Lanes Were Named After Jay-Z

American radio host and television personality, Charlamagne Tha God has revealed that when he first moved to New York City, he thought that HOV lanes along the local highways were named after Jay-Z.

He made the revelation during an episode of the nationally syndicated radio show, The Breakfast Club where he explained that when he saw signs on the highway that read “HOV,” Jay-Z was the very first thing he thought of.

In true hip-hop head fashion, Charla mistakenly took high-occupancy vehicle lanes (HOV), also referred to as carpool lanes, as a symbol of Jay’s high-profile status in his home city.

“I want ya’ll to keep in mind that I know nothing about the HOV lane,” explained the South Carolina native at the 26:45-mark in the clip below. “First time I ever saw a HOV lane was in New York City and I said to myself, ‘Damn. Jay-Z got his own lanes in New York?’ I did. When I moved here in 2006, that’s the first thing I thought. ‘He really is the King of New York.'”
