Recall in 2019, the rapper first hinted about plans to change his name when he had a conversation with Yeezy’s head footwear designer Steven Smith.
Documents show that he wants to drop his last name as well, and go from Kanye Omari West to just “Ye”, with no other first name or surname, citing “personal reasons”
Kanye West is expected to release his tenth studio album, Donda, this week following playback of it at Soldier Field in his native Chicago on Thursday. The album has been anticipated for weeks, ever since he staged another playback event in an Atlanta sports arena 2nd of July. He continued to work on the album in a makeshift studio and living space in the arena.
