Rapper Kanye West changes his name to 'Ye'

Share

"Ye's new album, Yandhi, dropped Saturday night; in it, he raps about "givin" up my slave name".

Kanye said after the show, which wasn't aired on TV.

Kanye also reiterated his ambition to become the US president one day, although he admitted that some issues, such as crime in his home city of Chicago, can not be solved easily.

"I believe YE is the most commonly used word in the Bible", he is reported as telling LA radio station Real 92.3 when promoting his music. That's a Democratic plan. If you remember, this was a song that was played at the listening party for Teyana's album KTSE but did not make the cut when the project hit stores.

Comedian Chris Rock filmed parts of the speech, and can be heard whispering "oh my god" as the rapper continued.

"And then they say I'm in a sunken place". "Thank ya'll for giving me this platform", he started.

During his show-ending performance of "Ghost Town", West delivered a sort of stump speech that reiterated his backing of POTUS 45 and that he plans to run for president in 2020.

'So many times I talk to a white person about this and [they] say, "How could you like Trump?"

Kanye also criticized the mainstream media's perceived liberal bias, as well as America's welfare system. It's the title of the album West released earlier this year.

Viewers who were tuned in for the end of Saturday's episode saw host Adam Driver and the principal cast exit the stage after goodnights, forgoing the usual round of hugs and pleasantries exchanged as the credits roll.

The musical artist has long drawn controversy for his vocal support of President Trump and other, inflammatory comments.

Kanye's rant was met with boos from the studio audience, and several of the show's cast members, who were standing behind Kanye, looked visibly uncomfortable.
