Kanye West is legally changing his name to Ye. This comes as no surprise as he tweeted “the being formally known as Kanye West I am YE” back in September 2018.
According to CBS News, “the legal documents, filed last Tuesday in Los Angeles, show West listed ‘personal reasons’ as his explanation for changing his name.”
With this name change, the artist previously known as Kanye Omari West, will now just be called Ye with no middle or last names.
This news doesn’t come as a shock to many, considering his mention of it in an old tweet as well as the fact that Kanye is Kanye. He’s known for doing things that are out of the ordinary, so it’s almost expected of him at this point, especially if there is a new project to be talked about. Oh yeah, like Donda.
Let’s see what the next crazy, out of the box thing is that Ye does next.
