Kanye is now referred to as Ye rather than Kanye.
A Los Angeles judge today granted musician Kanye West’s petition to formally alter his name to “Ye,” with no middle or surname name.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michelle Williams Court granted the singer’s motion, which he submitted on August 24 and claimed he was making the change for personal reasons.
The 44-year-old rapper released his eighth studio album, “Ye,” in June 2018. In the same year, in an interview with radio presenter Big Boy, the singer stated that he believes “ye” is “the most often used word in the Bible, and claimed in the Bible it means ‘you.'”
