(Gray News) – Yeezus, what are you up to now?
Kanye West often turns heads with what he has to say.
A recent interview was no exception.
It seems the musician/entrepreneur is considering a name change.
How does Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West sound? Try fitting that on your business cards.
Is he serious? Who knows?
“When people say it’s crass to call yourself a billionaire, I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y’all understand exactly what it is,” he told Fast Company senior writer Mark Wilson.
West is hardly new to controversy.
Last year, he suggested slavery was a choice.
In 2013, he wore the Confederate flag in an effort to reappropriate what many consider to be a symbol of white supremacy and racial hatred.
In 2006, he posed for Rolling Stone with a crown of thorns and compared himself to Jesus.
Fast Company is a business magazine that reports on technology, business and design.
The comments by West were part of a wide-ranging interview about his businesses and personal life.
