Kanye West has officially changed his name to Ye.

BBC News says a Los Angeles judge granted the rapper’s name change request, which was filed in August this year.

The 44-year-old star reportedly citing “personal reasons” for the decision.

The rapper is best known for hits such as “Gold Digger” and “Stronger”.

He has already used Ye as a nickname and in 2018 used it as an album title as well.
