New York, NY – Kanye West is apparently now YE forever. According to a recent tweet, the eccentric Hip Hop vet no longer wants to be known by his full name. He made the announcement on Saturday (September 29), the day of his performance on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live.
“the being formally known as Kanye West,” he wrote. “I am YE.”
the being formally known as Kanye West
I am YE

The Chi-Town native’s recent solo album was titled ye and people routinely shorten his name anyway. Who knows? Maybe after tonight’s Yandhi release, he’ll want to be known as YANDHI.
Until then, welcome to the era of YE.
