Semi-protected edit request on 6 May 2017[edit]

The name Kanye West is sometimes stylized as "kanYe West" as seen on the Graduation cover for example, this information should be added to the first paragraph. XBub (talk) 11:30, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

This does seem to be a thing ([1], [2], [3]). Done. Thanks, Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:59, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
I removed it (followup note here). I don't see that this is WP:Lead material, the name is not a significant WP:Alternative name/spelling. It is not usually used by sources when speaking of West. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 08:48, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
Fair enough. I did feel a little weird putting it in the first sentence, but couldn't see anywhere else to put it. We've got a redirect from KanYe West so anyone who searches for that will end up here anyway. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:36, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

I think picture of Kanye West in this article should be changed to something newer as current one is from 2009 (8 years old).

This image from 2016 Video Music Awards event seems fitting.
