Rapper and fashion designer, Kanye West, 44, has legally sent in paperwork to the Los Angeles Superior Court to change his name to his notorious nickname, “YE.”
Kanye Omari West is his legal birth name and when filing with the court on why he wanted to change his name he wrote “personal reasons.”
This shouldn’t come as a surprise knowing the superstar and his spontaneous actions. He tweeted three years ago about his former self as “the being” and how he sees himself as “I am YE.”

I am YE
Ye has been a nickname of the “Famous” singer for quite some time. Ye is a shortened form of his first name. The name resonated with Kanye so much that he titled his eighth studio album, “Ye” which was released on June 1, 2018. He has talked about the significance of “Ye” which is due to religious reasons. The nickname dates even further back to the early 2010s.
