You’re probably going to miss the old Kanye because American Kanye Omari West is said to have filed court documents to legally change his name. To what you ask? A simple, two-letter mononym- Ye. Ye, we are serious.

According to the Los Angeles Superior Court filing, the 44-year-old rapper cited “personal reasons” for his name change in the court documents that were dated 11 August. All that’s left now for Kanye to be Ye is a judge’s approval.

However, this isn’t the first time West has expressed an interest in changing his name as the rapper once tweeted in 2018, saying “the being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE”.

In a radio interview three years ago, West explained his love of the name ‘Ye’, which is also the title of his eighth studio album, as it was “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.”

What are your thoughts about West’s name change, Ye or Nay?
