Rapper Kanye West is entering a new era in his life as he has asked a judge to legally change his name. The rapper according to reports wants to officially be known as Ye.
According to court reports obtained by E!News the rapper filed a request to change his name from Kanye Omari West to just “Ye”. He stated in the filing that he wants to make the change for “personal reasons. The Hip-hop star first gave himself the nickname back in 2018, ahead of an appearance on Saturday Night Live. He tweeted, “The being formally known as Kanye West…I am YE.”
He explained that the name held a deeper spiritual meaning. “I believe ‘ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible, it means ‘you.’ So, I’m you, I’m us, it’s us. It went from Kanye, which means the only one, to just Ye — just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confusion, everything. The album is more of a reflection of who we are.”
