Kanye West might change his name to 'Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West'

Kanye West is the gift that keeps on giving. In recent days, he's been attending a lot of business-related events, and while at The New York Times' DealBook Conference, in addition to saying that he was inspired by the Kardashians' work ethic, he took part in a panel discussion at the Fast Company Innovation Festival, where he revealed that he might be changing his name.

What to? I hear you ask. None other than "Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West".

This is the moment Kanye was caught on camera eating his own earwax. As you do...

Discussing black empowerment, as per the Hollywood Reporter, the rapper said: "Martin Luther King didn’t get killed because he had a dream; he had something else he was going to talk about. He talked about black empowerment, economic empowerment.

"When I did Forbes, I showed them a $890 million receipt and they still didn’t say 'billionaire'. They don't want us to know that we can buy land; they don’t want us to have the 100 percent ownership [that] I have at Yeezy. […]

"When people say it's crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y'all understand exactly what it is."

The rapper also reiterated his intention to one day run for president, saying: "When I run for President in 2024…"

In response to this, some audience members laughed, and West retorted, "What y'all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk. When you see headlines saying Kanye's crazy - one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can't say nothing, they got no opinion, they're so scared!"
