Consider the name Kim Kardashian Yeezus. And the renamed TV show, Keeping Up With the Yeezuses.

It's probably not going to happen but seem like the logical next step after her baby daddy Kanye West told fans at his listening party at Milk Studios in NYC last night that he now prefers to go by the controversial name of his upcoming album instead of the last name he was born with.

"West was my slave name," he told the crowd, which included Beyonce, Jay Z, Busta Rhymes, Timbaland and others. "Yeezus is my God name."

This announcement came almost 24 hours before the controversy-prone rapper debuted his new song, "I am a God" to the crowd at the Governor's Ball Music Festival.

Kanye told the listening party, he feels he is so beyond other artists that he will not release singles for this album, hopefully preventing his music from appearing alongside "related artists" on Youtube, he said. He also does not want to be played on the radio alongside lesser music, he has said.

Kanye then went on to brag to guests about how his father was in the Black Panthers after playing his new track "Black Skinheads," which premiered at the Governor's Ball to backup dancers in black KKK hoods.

Increasingly, Christians like Candace Cameron Bure have come forward to bash Kanye's recent lack of humility. But as he insisted at the Governor's Ball, he couldn't care less.

"I had to learn about giving," he told the crowd at Milk Studios. "This whole album is about giving, this whole process is about giving … no f**ks at all."

"I have a new strategy," he explained. "It's called 'no strategy.' I have a plan to sell more music. It's called, 'make better music.'"

Before wrapping things up around midnight, he grabbed the mic from a member of his team and announced, "If I'm standing next to someone, that means they're smarter than me. If I'm standing next to someone, that means they're better at something than I am."

Does that apply to pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian, who was stuck at home in L.A.?

It certainly does not apply to photographers, in Kanye's mind.

When a photog wished him a happy belated birthday in NYC yesterday, according to reports, Ye yelled, "Shut up! Don't ever talk!"
