American rapper, Kanye West, has continued to cause a buzz on social media. However, this time around, it is because of a text message allegedly between him and the staff.

The obviously flustered staff then replied by explaining why they were late and also apologising profusely.
“I’m really sorry. I have no excuse. I set an alarm for 7:30am. And for whatever reason my phone wasn’t alerting me. I woke up at 11:08 to missed calls and got dressed as fast as I could. Lou was already on his way to get boogz and they just got here. I didn’t call back right away cause I was in panic trying to find a ride. I know this is unacceptable. I’m sorry.”
However, Kanye seemed unmoved and advised the person to stop texting. The rapper also told the staff to go find God and come back after they had.

According to Akademiks, Kanye's iCloud was recently hacked and this could have led to the alleged text between the rapper and his staff making the rounds.
Internet users react
After the alleged text between Kanye and his fired engineer made the rounds on social media, a number of the rapper's fans had things to say about it. Read some of their comments below:
"The "Go find God" is a keeper tho."
"Drake about to hire him.... #godsplan."
"Dam*n stop “texting go find god “ sound like the devil to me."
"Shi*tttt I was working for ye I’d be there an hour early. Too bad, be on time."
Kanye West to change his name to 'Ye'
The eccentric rapper has filed court documents to officially change his name to just 'Ye', reported YEN.com.gh.
Court papers indicated that Kanye Omari West petitioned to have the name become a Ye, with no other first name or surname. The application cited “personal reasons” for the change.
A judge will now need to approve the filing. This is not the first time Kanye has mentioned wanting to become Ye. In 2018, the rapper posted a tweet saying that he was just to be addressed as Ye now.
In that same year, the rapper did a radio interview to address the reasons behind the change.
