Kanye West is now just Ye
Written by Mere Moto on October 19, 2021
Kanye Wests request to legally change his name from Kanye Omari West to just Ye, with no middle or last name was granted by a Los Angeles Judge.
Ye is a name he had called himself on his social media pages for years. Back in 2018 he twitted that he wanted the change saying, “the being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE.” The petition was filed on Aug. 24th and it cited “personal reasons.”
So now he is officially known as “Ye”
