Kanye West Insists on Being Called Ye by the Music Industry

Kanye West​ Requests Music Industry to Recognize Him as ‘Ye’

As of ⁤3/23/2024‌ at 1:00 AM PT

Kanye West has expressed his desire for ⁤prominent figures in the music industry​ to acknowledge his choice to be⁢ known as ‘Ye’ after legally changing his name, according ‍to sources at TMZ.

In a document obtained ‍by TMZ, ⁣Kanye’s chief of ⁢staff, Milo Yiannopoulos, sends a‌ firm message to major entities in the‌ music industry, such as ⁢streaming‍ services, publishers, lyric websites, and others, insisting that the artist should now be identified as Ye.

According to Milo, Kanye did not make the decision ⁣to alter his name lightly, recognizing that⁤ he is giving up the brand recognition associated⁢ with ‍the name ‘Kanye West.’‌ Despite this, the Grammy-winning⁤ artist ⁤views ‘Kanye West’ as a “slave name” and is ‍committed to removing it from all platforms.

Milo further emphasizes, “Ye is⁤ a Black man in America ‍who deserves the⁢ freedom to⁢ determine his ⁢own identity, just like anyone ‌else.”

It’s important to note⁢ that Kanye ⁣officially⁢ changed ⁢his name to Ye in October 2021. After obtaining approval from a⁣ judge⁢ to adopt his longstanding nickname as his legal name, Kanye solidified this transition, citing ⁣its significance in Biblical terms ‍during a discussion​ with radio⁢ host Big Boy in‌ 2018,⁢ even‌ though the claim about its frequency in‌ the Bible was inaccurate.

Although Kanye’s​ decision‍ to adopt the name ‘Ye’ sets him apart, he is not the ⁢only⁢ artist to⁤ undergo a name change in⁢ the ⁢industry. Notable figures like Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Prince, ​Bow Wow, and Kesha have also revamped ⁤their public personas over the years.

The ​question now remains ⁢whether the music industry will comply with Ye’s directive. Will they conform​ to Ye’s preferences, or will ‍they choose to maintain the status quo? Only time will tell.
