Kanye West has officially changed his name to simply Ye and it looks like the eccentric rapper got a new bizarre haircut to go along with the new name.
A Los Angeles judge granted the rapper’s name change request, a communications officer at the Los Angeles superior court confirmed the development.
This comes after the 44-year-old star filed the request in August saying the name change was due to personal reasons. Kanye has been using the name Ye for a while as a nickname and in 2018 he used it as an album title.
“The formally known as Kanye West. I am Ye,” he tweeted shortly after his album release.
Now he has officially moved from his birth name, Kanye Omari West to Ye. His twitter handle was already changed to Ye but his Instagram and website still use Kanye West.
In 2018 he revealed the name ‘Ye’ has religious significance to him.
“I believe ‘Ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible it means you. So it’s I’m you, I’m us, it’s us,” said Ye.
Ye recently released his latest album Donda in August with 27 tracks with a running time of two hours. On Tuesday he also trending for his new haircut which left a lot of hair patches on his head.
