The many people going off in the comments include Brockhampton and celebrity barber Vic Blends, with both accounts dropping fire emojis.
A couple images of Yeezus’ new ’do also popped up on Twitter, with the noted fan account Photos of Kanye claiming the spotting occurred in a Swedish McDonald’s:
The new look arrives just hours after it was announced that West had legally changed his name to Ye, with no middle or last name.

Kanye previously hinted at changing his name following the release of his 2018 album Ye, writingon Twitter, “the being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE.”
Yeezy also popped up at a wedding in Venice over the weekend, performing several songs that were filmed and posted.
