Kanye West Files to Legally Change His Name to Ye

Published: Tuesday 24th Aug 2021 by Sam

Kanye West may have fans waiting with bated breath for his new album ‘Donda,’ but it appears he has more pressing matters to tend to.

Like changing his name legally.

Full story below…

Per TMZ, the rapper has formally filed documents to have his name changed from his birth name Kanye Omari West to Ye – his longtime nickname.

He’s also angling to drop the “West” entirely. Meaning, if approved, he’d be a mononym moving forward.

The star’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian-West has opted to keep the name post their split, meaning she’d be a West when Ye, well, wouldn’t.

    Kanye is a genius producer. No other rapper remains consistently relevant but he ruined his discography by releasing RANDOM projects that are tirelessly disconnected between them

    He’s just amputated the earnings of ALL those who had legal right to profit off of the name: Kanye (Omari) West. Smart move. Will the name change slash his divorcée’s (in Sherée Whitfield’s voice) lump sum? 👀

    Outside of him being Great at his Craft, he looks like he has no life in those eyes. Like it has just been sucked out.

    I wonder if his mother came up with his name…it’s a unique name and if his mother did name him that, why would he change it? Different strokes I guess but if my mother passed away I wouldn’t change the name she chose for me buttt that’s just me 👨‍❤️‍👨
