Kanye West Officially Changes His Name To Ye

The artist formerly known as Kanye West will now be officially known as simply Ye.

A Los Angeles judge granted the rapper’s name change request, a communications officer at the Los Angeles Superior Court confirmed.

The 44-year-old star filed the request in August, citing “personal reasons.”

The rapper, best known for hits such as Gold Digger and Stronger, already used Ye as a nickname and in 2018 used it as an album title.

Shortly after the album’s release, he tweeted: “The being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE.”

Now he’s made it official and his previous full name – Kanye Omari West – is no more.

While his Twitter handle was already Ye, his Instagram account and website were still using his previous name as of Tuesday.

As well as being a shortened version of Kanye, the new moniker also has religious significance for the star.

I believe ‘ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible it means you. So it’s I’m you, I’m us, it’s us,” he said in a 2018 interview with radio host Big Boy.

It went from being Kanye, which means the only one, to just Ye being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused, our everything.”

Ye released his latest album Donda in August, featuring 27 tracks with a running time of two hours.

Kanye Omari West officially filed legal documents in Los Angeles to formally change his name to Ye in August this year.
