Citing “great customer service, complimentary beverages, and banging stewardesses,” Kanye West announced that he was officially changing his daughter’s name to South in a showing of respect to the airplane company Southwest.
The name switch was not done hastily as Kanye said he had been considering changing daughter North’s name since before her birth. However, his December flight from JFK to BIL seemed to be the catalyst pushing him to make an official change.
“Southwest is the like the Kanye West of the airline industry; they are gods,” stated the ‘Heartless’ singer. “I still ain’t had a better flight than that to this mothafuckin day.”
Kim Kardashian seemed to fully embrace the name change for her daughter by proclaiming, “Kanye is such a creative genius—it’s like, no one else would have thought of that. He’s just so amazing.”
