“The being formally [sic] known as Kanye West. I am YE.”
The moment he announced it, people are wondering what made him do so? Here’s the answer!
41 years old West, has been nicknamed YE for some time and used the moniker as the title for his eighth album, which was released in June. Also, according to Kanye, the word ‘YE’ is not only the abbreviation of his current professional name but it has a religious significance for him. He said,
“I believe ‘ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible, it means ‘you’. So I’m you, I’m us, it’s us. It went from Kanye, which means the only one, to just Ye – just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused, everything. The album is more of a reflection of who we are.”
