Rapper Kanye West is changing his name - to Ye.

说唱歌手坎耶·韦斯特(Kanye West)正在改名为“爷”(ye)。

Announcing the change on Twitter on Saturday, he wrote: "The being formally [sic] known as Kanye West. I am YE."

周六在Twitter上宣布:“别叫我坎耶·韦斯特(Kanye)了,现在我是‘爷’(YE)。”

West, 41, has been nicknamed Ye for some time and used the moniker as the title for his eighth album, which was released in June.

41岁的韦斯特已经被昵称为Ye有一段时间,并用这个绰号作为他的第八张专辑的头衔,该专辑于六月发行。

The change came ahead of his appearance on Saturday Night Live, where he was expected to launch his new album Yandhi.

在他出席“周六夜现场”节目,推出他的新专辑《Yandhi》之前,他发布了该推文。

He replaced singer Ariana Grande on the show who cancelled for "emotional reasons", the show’s creator said.

该节目的创作者说,他取代了歌手阿丽亚娜·格兰德因,她因“情感原因”取消上该节目的计划。

As well as being an abbreviation of his current professional name, West has previously said the word has religious significance for him.

这个词除了作为他现在的专业名称的缩写之外,韦斯特此前曾说过该名字对他来说具有宗教意义。

"I believe ’ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible it means ’you,’" West said earlier this year, discussing his album title with radio host Big Boy.

“我相信’ye’是圣经中最常用的词,在圣经中它意味着’你’,”韦斯特今年早些时候与电台主持人Big Boy讨论他的专辑名称时说道。

"So I’m you, I’m us, it’s us. It went from Kanye, which means the only one, to just Ye - just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused, everything. The album is more of a reflection of who we are."

“所以我就是你,我是我们,是我们。这个名字的起源是Kanye,意思是唯一的,现在我叫做Ye--这个词代表着我们的好,我们的坏,我们的困惑,我们的一切。这一专辑更多反映了我们是谁。“
