Kanye West change his name

Kanye West is getting approval to change his name.

West filed a petition back in August that would change his name from Kanye Omari West to “Ye.”

The Hip-Hop icon and entrepreneur said it was for personal reasons.

Yesterday a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge said The 44-year-old rapper can legally be known as “Ye” [[ yay ]].

Rapper Young Thug reveals how he made it on Kanye West’s DONDA album.

There’s no word on how the move will affect his divorce proceedings with his soon-to-be-ex-wife Kim, who still goes by Kim Kardashian West.

This latest news follows the ruling of Kim to receive the Hidden Hills estate in her divorce with Kanye West. Kim and Ye shelled out over $20 million for the property back in 2014 and essentially rebuilt it from the ground up.

The couple split less than a year ago but remain on good terms.

Kanye West Breaks Hip Hop Producer Record With Lil Nas X’s ‘Industry Baby’

Kanye West and a Couple Famous Friends Hit a Chick-Fil-A in Georgia

Almost 2 decades in the industry and Kanye continues to stay relevant and break records. With Lil Nas X’s single “Industry Baby” reaching number 1 on Billboard, West has now produced the most Hot 100 number one Hip Hop songs of all hip hop producers.

According to Hip Hop By The Numbers, the record was previously set by Puffy, who has four number one Hot 100 hip hop songs.

“Industry Baby” makes West’s first production appearance at number one since his “Stronger” in 2007.

Lil Nas X spoke about working with West in July around the time of the song’s release. Nas X couldn’t say how the two got to collaborate but said that it was nice to work with someone with “longevity” and who was constantly evolving.

“It’s nice to work with somebody who’s done that for so long, so much longevity and still going. And like constantly evolving. Not even just evolving but completely changing into something else. He’s also doing something different and new. Over and over and over again recreating himself.”

Young Thug Reveals How Made it On Kanye West’s ‘DONDA’ Album

Young Thug 100 acres

Aside from busting out the windows of a Rolls Royce, Young Thug is most notable in the industry for his unique fashion and popular sound. The trendy dresser is gearing up to release his latest studio album, PUNK, expected to drop on October 15th. Ahead of his forthcoming album, Thugger sat down with Complex to discuss some interesting points he has about the industry and more.

A few months ago, entertainers like Soulja Boy and Chris Brown were upset after hearing that their verses were taken off of Kanye West’s highly anticipated album, DONDA. In this interview, Thugga shared how he stayed on West’s album after being asked if the Chicago rapper tried to make him rap in the gospel direction, would he take the instruction.

“You can’t instruct me … You can’t give me instructions, and I am saying that humbly. I understand music. I understand life. I understand everything,” the rapper explained. “I understand the way the universe works, so you don’t have to talk to me about certain shit. I feel like n*ggas like Kanye West, and Jay-Z, and fucking Quincy Jones, and James Brown, and if Michael Jackson and Prince were here … Them n*ggas understand that about me. They trust me.”

It’s no secret that Kanye West made many changes to his album before its unexpected official release. When asked about being potentially left off the album, Thugga shared the consequences he told West if his verse was left off the single, “Remote Control.”

“What n****s don’t know about Kanye West is he’s a real n***a. He’s a billionaire, and all that shit is cool, but in real life, he could survive in the trenches. If he go to the trenches, the jungle, he could survive. He a real n***a,” the Slime Season rapper began. “I just hit Kanye like, ‘Bro, if I ain’t on the album, we are not speaking.”

Well, it seems as though Kanye cared about being on speaking terms with Thugga as we can see the rapper’s verse stayed on the album. Do you think Chris Brown and Soulja Boy could have pulled the same stunt?

Kim Kardashian West Still Divorcing Kanye West, Awarded $60M Hidden Hills Estate

Kim Kardashian is Supportive of the Church Kanye West Wants to Create

Kim Kardashian West is getting the Hidden Hills estate in her divorce with Kanye West.

The Chicago native designed the estate and shared it with the former Keeping up with the Kardashians star, who is still living in the home with their four children. Kim and Kanye shelled out over $20 million for the property back in 2014 and essentially rebuilt it from the ground up.

Reportedly, they even purchased the land next door to expand their dream home. The “Off The Grid” rapper is largely responsible for the design and architecture inspired by the famed Axel Vervoordt.

TMZ reported Tuesday that the former couple negotiated a buyout price on the 60-million-dollar estate.

A separate source revealed that the couple came to the decision early on to grant Kim the home since it’s where their four kids have grown up and “all they’ve ever known.” Kanye has told friends he’d give Kim whatever she wants, as he loves her and knows he’ll be fine financially,” the source continued.

The latest news follows Kanye West listing his Wyoming estate for sale on the market at 11-million-dollars.

The couple split less than a year ago but remain on good terms.

Kim filed for divorce back in February after seven years of marriage and four children, North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.

ICYMI: Kanye West Opening Donda Academy Prep School Outside LA

Kanye West Donda Academy

Donda Academy has already secured commitments from three five-star basketball prospects.

 Kanye West will open a prep school in Southern California, with a heavy focus on basketball.  Donda Academy, named after Ye’s late mother, will be a tuition-free private K-12 school located just outside of Los Angeles. 

The school has already secured a partnership with Adidas to go along with commitments from some elite basketball prospects. Despite not securing a coach yet Jalen Hooks, Robert Dillingham, and Jakhi Howard are ready to move toward the goal.

“It’s just one of those things you can’t pass up,” Hooks shared with the Indianapolis Star. “It was more of a family decision, too. All of us just felt like it was a chance to reach my full potential and grow and get ready for the college level.”

According to Yahoo Sports, a game is being discussed between Lebron James’ son Bronny and Sierra Canyon for the LA’s Staples Center next year.

The academy’s website says the school will focus on equipping students with an education that “will last in the ever-changing world.”

They plan to find the intersection “between faith and the innovation of the future.” 

There’s no word when classes will officially start.
