Kanye who?

The multiple Grammy Award-winning rapper would like to re-introduce you to himself.

As simply “Ye”.

“The being formally known as Kanye West. I am Ye,” the 41-year-old wrote on Twitter ahead of his appearance on Saturday Night Live.

“Ye” has been a longtime nickname for Kanye and is, of course, the name of his eighth and most recent studio album.

He has previously said that he found a spiritual significance to “Ye” — the plural or formal version of the second-person pronoun in Middle English — as he so frequently read it in the Bible.

It’s definitely shorter to sign for autographs!
