Rapper Kanye West now officially known as ‘Ye’

California: Kanye West legally changed his name to Ye after the rapper had formally requested to change his name to ‘ye’ (pronounced “yay”) after filing legal documents – citing “personal reasons” for the name change.

He has now successfully dropped his full name – Kanye Omari West – in favour of this long-time two letter moniker.

“Formally known as Kanye West. I am YE,” tweeted the rapper after his application was officially approved by LA Superior Court Judge Michelle Williams.

In 2018, the rapper told radio host Big Boy, “I believe ‘ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible. In the Bible it means you. “So, I’m you. And I’m us. It went from being Kanye, which means the only one, to just Ye, just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused – everything. It’s more of a reflection of who we are [as] beings.”

Kanye had also named his eighth studio album in 2018 as Ye and the name has been present on his Twitter handle for quite some time.

The rapper is in the midst of a divorce from reality television star Kim Kardashian West, whom he married in 2014. They share four children: seven-year-old North, five-year-old Saint, three-year-old Chicago, and two-year-old Psalm.

West did not ask that his estranged wife’s name be changed back to just Kardashian when she filed to split from him in February.
