Kanye West Is Changing His Name to "Ye"

No last name included.

Kanye West, whose formal name is Kanye Omari West, has filed to change his official name to “Ye.”

In a legal document acquired by TMZ, the musician has proposed to go by simply, “Ye,” reminding us of his 2018 tweet where he wrote: “The being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE.”

The name change comes ahead of the DONDA artist’s third listening party set to take place in Chicago‘s Soldier Field Stadium. Just before the event, the rapper wiped his Instagram account and posted an image of his childhood home.

According to TMZ, name changes are approved in California as long as there is no evidence of committing fraud or other crimes.
