What Does Yeezy Mean?

Inspired by his mentor Jay-Z, who gave himself the name J-Hov (or Hov), derived from Jehovah, the Hebrew name for God, Kanye West chose the name of “Yeezus” to instate himself as a high level “God” of rap.

Derived from the name of Jesus, who most Christians believe he is the incarnation of God the Son and the awaited Messiah, Yeezus is also the title of Kanye West’s groundbreaking sixth studio album that was released in 2013.

For his fashion collaboration, he followed a hip-hop nickname trend of adding “eezy” to letters in his last name. Other artists who have done the same include Weezy (Lil Wayne), Drizzy (Aubrey Drake Graham), Jeezy (Jay Wayne Jenkins), Eazy-E  (Eric Lynn Wright), and Breezy (Christopher Maurice Brown).

One of Kanye West’s short names is Ye, which is also the title of his eighth studio album that was released in 2018.

According to Forbes, Yeezy is a shortening of the “Kanyeezy” nickname that Jay-Z gave him in the intro to the song “Lucifer” on The Black Album (2003).
