Look what Ye have to call Kanye

Sunday Sun - - News -

KANYE West has an­nounced he is now to be known as Ye.

The rap­per has used the nick­name for many years and even used it for the ti­tle of his June al­bum.

He wrote on Twit­ter: “The be­ing for­mally [sic] known as Kanye West. I am YE.

West is ex­pected to re­lease a new al­bum en­ti­tled Yandhi to co­in­cide with his ap­pear­ance on Satur­day Night Live yes­ter­day.

He was the mu­si­cal guest on the US sketch show, hosted by Star Wars ac­tor Adam Driver.

The show’s ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Lorne Michaels has pre­vi­ously re­vealed that West was a last-minute con­fir­ma­tion af­ter Ari­ana Grande dropped out for “emo­tional rea­sons”, shortly af­ter the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

West’s move fol­lows a long line of rap­pers who have changed their name.

Diddy has been known by monikers in­clud­ing Puff Daddy, Puffy and P Diddy.
