TMZ reported that the rapper filed the paperwork in Los Angeles, as he asked a court to change his name from his birth name Kanye Omari West to “Ye.”

If a judge signs off the the request, the rapper will no longer be known as Kanye and will instead take on the abbreviation of his name.

According to the outlet, a judge will likely approve the request “unless there’s evidence a name change is designed to commit fraud or other shenanigans.”

The rapper did the filing shortly after it was revealed he will host his third listening event for his highly anticipated tenth album DONDA.
