Kanye West is Legally Changing His Name to Ye, Says Bible Inspired Him

American rapper, Kanye West has formally filed a petition to change his name from his moniker Kanye Omari West to just Ye, with no middle name or last name, according to Los Angeles Superior Court documents obtained by AP.

In the documents which were dated August 11 West, cited ”personal reasons” for the change. A judge must approve before the petition before it becomes official.

He had explained the change in a radio interview two years ago, saying: “I believe ‘ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible it means you. So I’m you, I’m us, it’s us.”
