Kanye West Says He Has Changed His Name to YE
Kanye West has a new album called Yandhi coming out tonight, and apparently it will be released under a new name. The rapper has said that he's formally changed his name to YE.

He announced the change this morning with a rather dramatic tweet: The rapper has been informally known as YE for years, and it was of course the name of his album from earlier this year.

Kanye West YE is due to appear on Saturday Night Live tonight. We'll have to see if he appears under his old name or his new abbreviation.
